  • If you think you will find a dolphin show, then do not come here. The Dolphin Habitat at Mirage has two attractions: the dolphins and the white tigers. I had a happy time watching the dolphins swim. I was lucky enough to see the dolphin caretakers feed the dolphins, and that's when the dolphins perform a few tricks and exercises (which according to the trainers are important to keep the dolphins physically & mentally fit). Another part is the Secret Garden, where you will find a few white lions and white tigers. They look absolutely exotic.
  • Been there 3 times. Probably not as worth it the second or third time but never a disappointment (except they ARE pretty small). However, the environment is cool, the underwater viewing is neat as the dolphins will often come interact with people at the window and the tigers/big cats are very neat (but most often asleep).
  • Staff was friendly and able to answer questions. Animals seemed well cared for. Siegfried was strolling through while we were there and was taking pictures with guests.
  • Get to see dolphins up close without large crowds. We didn't pay for the swimming tour with the dolphins but we stood less then a metre (3ft) away from the edge of the pool and saw the dolphins during there training sessions. Training sessions are every half an hour. Also saw tigers and lions but like all cats they sleep during the day. So kinda boring. :p
  • The Secret Garden at The Mirage Hotel has an exciting name but imo, its misleading. The African cats are located in a semi-habitat landscape, but they don't have a lot of room. We visited late morning in September and they were all sleeping or bored. This garden is actually a small zoo with just a few cats. If you don't stop in front of each cage, you can walk through in less than 10 minutes. The dolphin habitat is also misleading. It's a group of pools where trainers have a short presentation of 3-4 dolphins some children can pet or 2-3 dolphins jump high out of the water. This lasts no more than 15 minutes. Don't expect a Sea World style performance show. One dolphin pool has an underwater window you can see them swim which is great. The dolphins are curious of us (notice their eye movement) as they swim very close to the glass so you can get a photo as they swim by. We were told one-on-one with a dolphin is available at an extra cost. All in all you can walk through this attraction in one hour or less for adults. Add 30 minutes with children. With my comments, the entrance cost for a family is much too expensive. They don't offer senior, veteran discounts. Boo. The zoo was a big disappointment. Mandalay Bay's Shark Reef Aquarium is a better attraction as the cost is about equal but there's more to see and learn.
