by Emerson The One Place In Nevada That Lets You Slide Through A Shark Tank
Okay, it’s no secret that Nevada is home to some pretty bizarre attractions. Especially in Vegas, it seems that anything is possible. However, there are some attractions that leave you scratching your head and wondering if maybe they’ve gone too far. The Golden Nugget Hotel And Casino offers guests a unique experience by letting them slide through a giant shark tank. Yep, a shark tank. This one is for the people who live for the thrills. Would you do it?
In many ways, Golden Nugget Hotel and Casino is much like any of the other casinos located on or near the Las Vegas Strip. They're big, flashy, and they know how to give their guests an experience. However, they are home to one unique attraction that nobody else has.
This giant water slide looks pretty fun. And pretty normal. Don't be fooled. This water slide leads you right into a 200,000-gallon aquarium which is home to all sorts of aquatic species...including sharks.
If you've ever wanted to see a shark up close and personal, this is your chance. The large, three-story water slide leads you through a clear tube that runs straight through the tank, giving you the best view of some of the Earth's most dangerous creatures.
The slide certainly isn't for everyone but it's the Golden Nugget's most popular attraction. It's even gained national attention by various media outlets such as "America’s Most Amazing Hotel Pools" from CNN Travel and "One Of The Most Extreme Pools In The World" by Travel Channel.
The pool itself is actually pretty incredible. Swimming right next to the massive aquarium is an experience that simply cannot be paralleled. Relax poolside or underneath the waterfall after taking your thrilling plunge with the sharks.
They even offer a tour where you can learn all about the inner workings of the aquarium from the staff marine biologists. You'll get to see how the animals are cared for and even get to bring home a souvenir shark tooth. This is one of those Vegas activities that the whole family can enjoy.
Check out the video below to get a little taste of what sliding through a shark tank is like. For more information about the pool, visit the Golden Nugget's website
