Siegfried & Roy's Secret Garden and Dolphin Habitat
Siegfried & Roy's Secret Garden and Dolphin Habitat is a tropical paradise dedicated to the wild things. You will find many exotic animals housed here, from panthers and leopards to elephants. This exhibit is presented in an effort to spotlight the need to protect vanishing species. There's also the intriguing Dolphin Habitat. You will thoroughly enjoy watching the antics of these amazing creatures that love to show off for onlookers.
I went this past year, in March, and absolutely loved my time in the Secret Gardens and Dolphin Habitat. I did something a little different than what I have read that you all have done. I actually trained the dolphins for a full day, and did shows infront of crowds. This is not just a pool with a few dolphins in it. It is a pool with 7 -9 dolphins in it, all being trained, and studied. If you want shows, and tricks every 30 minutes, go to seaworld! When i went in the day i was to be training the dolphins, first thing they told me was that this is not a 'Seaworld' type place. Here we study how the dolphin adapts to different environments, how they eat, grow and communicate with eachother. I spent 9 or 10 hours training and getting to know these dolphins in the freezing cold, andi wouldnt have had it any other way. I spent 550$ on that experience, and every penny was worth it! If there are any mammal/ dolphin lovers reading this, I absolutely recommend you spend a day with these dolphins. They are so smart and playful, they love when you get in the water and swim around with them, and rub them, feed them. it was a blast, and i would definitetly go back, again and again.
Natural habit, ha!!!! Not only were the pools where the dolphins were kept pretty bare, but the cat pens were so small. Understandibly this isn't a 'show' thing here in vegas, but not once did any of these so called 'specialist' come out to interact with the dolphins (yet you could barely spy them working with dolphins in a back pen out of sight of most visitors?!?!?
Left feeling the $17 would have been better spent on the slots or given to a holmless person on the strip. Feel sad for the dolphins and cats being kept in this 'pitiful' excuse for a 'natural habitat study area'.
Shame on Siegfried and Roy for putting their name on something like this...
I was really excited to go see the dolphins, but then I watched the movie "the Cove"
and found how these dolphins were captured. I will never go here again. horrable. its sad more people dont know this.
I loved the secret garden and dolphin habitat! The dolphins have a beautiful place to live and were very active. They were jumping and following the specialist. This is not a rehearsed show, but a reseach facility where the dolphins behave as they would in the wild. The tigers and other cats were beautiul! There were about 9 tigers, and they were so cute sleeping on the trees and on top of each other. Some were active and walking around. It was well worth the $15 and better than a zoo! I will go back!
This is a great place and so worth the money. Anyone that says otherwise was either expecting a show (and it is made clear that the Secret Garden isn't about that at all), doesn't truly love animals all that much, or doesn't appreciate/understand how rare white lions and tigers are. And heck, every time I go there is a baby dolphin swimming around. For that alone I'd pay $15 to see!
This is not worth the money they charge. Its not a research facility as they say and the habitats are what the zoo's used to have before they got smart and gave the animals more room. If this is a legacy to Sigfield and Roy the Mirage should be ashamed. Let the animals go to a sancuary where at least they might be happy.
It was worth the money for 15 $ i didnt expect a show and for anyone who does is an idiot, seaworld charges 60 $ so really for 15$ what do you expect? there were younger tigers that were cute, and to the people who were dissapointed they wernt tiny anymore, are you that stupid? how long do you think tigers sta small for seriously. all in all it was ok def no seaworld but ok
