The Shark Tank.... Finally

I know I've been promising this for a long time, and I've finally got a spare minute, so here it is! The sharks in the tank are giagantic, and quite scary to look at. It's quite an experience to be in the water, just on the other side of the glass of these monsters.
The water slide that goes through the tank is definatly one of the coolest parts of this pool. To this day I still have not been brave enough to look around while sliding through this part. I'm afraid I'll see a shark and go into histerics. I think the only one who really takes a look is Liam. That kid is fearless!Here he is on the slide. Look how happy he is!
Here is Cheyanne coming down the slide.
We happened to be there on a day that the scuba divers cleaned parts of the tank, which was really cool to watch. It was also kind of scary to see their outfits. Bill and I watched Shark Week on the Discovery Channel a couple of weeks ago, and watched Dirty Jobs, Jobs that Bite. They were investigating a job that tests out Shark Suits by being bit, on purpose, so we know what the suits look like, and the scuba cleaners were wearing them. They also set up these two huge nets across the area they were working so that the sharks couldn't get in and bother them. Scaaaary! In the background of this picture you can see the slide, a net, and a reef shark swimming around.
Here we are enjoying one of the many strategically placed benches in the pool. The end of the water slide is right behind us.
There is also a very nice hot tub at the Shark Tank. Here is Cheyanne with Mo and Ezra.


  1. This looks like so much fun! I haven't seen this place before. Is it in Vegas?

  2. Where is that at? It looks amazing and terrifying all at the same time!

  3. Okay--I have a new goal in life! I want to take my kids to that hotel to swim in that pool. How cool!!! Awesome pics--thanks for posting them!
