Siegfried & Roy's Secret Garden and Dolphin Habitat
Secret Garden & Dolphin Habitat is a tropical paradise dedicated to the wild things. The garden houses many exotic animals, from elephants, panthers, and leopards to Siegfried and Roy's rare and enchanting white tigers. This exhibit is presented in an effort to spotlight the need to protect vanishing breeds. Along with the land-based residents, visitors are invited to visit the intriguing Dolphin Habitat. This attraction is located at the Mirage Hotel Casino located mid-Strip.
We enjoyed visiting this place so much, we went back 2 days in a row to see it again. You get to be so close to the animals and they seem to be in their natural environment. The baby dolphin was a blast to watch!!
I was there back in May 09' and the animals were a tad bit lazy. Cute, but lazy. We got in free because we signed up for a timeshare presentation. I would not have waisted $15.00 to see sleeping animals, but it was nice to watch them anyway.
Brochure is very misleading. There is no scheduled Dolphin show as the pictures would imply. Everyone is there to see the White Baby Tiger as shown. He wasn't there that we could find. We paid $15.00 just to maintain the grounds. Save the $15.00 fee to spend on a Taxi ride back to the Airport.
For the price you would think it would be something really cool. they dont have actual dolphin shows you just watch them in their "natural" inviroment. (which is them at the gate waiting to get out) The cats just sleep but if you are in there long enough people actually go in the cages and try to wake them up and make them play which is a plus.
For the cost I expected more. There was not a lot of info given to you on the animals and they did not have the dolphins preform for you. The lions look better here then at the MGM but you can see the ones at the MGM for free.
Like other reviewers thought - this place was a HUGE disappointment! You get to gaze at a handful of dolphins swimming in a couple of pools. They have no show (they say because it's a research facility) so there's no excitement there. The caged cats were lifeless and in such small pens that we left feeling very sorry for them, they can't even run. That was it! Seriously! Oh, they had a trainer dozing in a glass room with a leopard cub (sweet job if you can get it!). I couldn't believe I spent $15/person to fly through that. It should be free. Go over to the Mandalay Bay's Shark Reef and spend the money there- well worth it! And then head over to the MGM Grand and see the FREE lion habitat. Those lions are at least awake and will play with the trainers that are in there.
Sigfreid and Roy should be ashamed of themselves......$15.00 bucks per person to see 2 Sleeping Lions, 1 White Tiger. 2 Sleeping Tigers on a Branch , 1 cougar, and a couple of Dolphins with no show schedule!
You gotta be kidding me! The one bright spot were the baby Tigers they were really cute! But You gotta be kidding me! DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME OR MONEY ! AT BEST THIS ATTRACTION SHOULD BE FREE !

The garden and dolphin habitat is absolutely beautiful! The dolphins live in large tanks. All the exhibits seem to be large enough in size. I only wish that the only Asian elephant had a companion since they are sociable animals. The cost to get in is $15 for adults and $10 for kids which is a little on the high end for the number of animals you get to see, but trust me, is still worth paying! Animals to view include: bottlenose dolphins, white lions, white and regular tigers, either a snow leopard or black panther, and an Asian elephant (if it is still there...I haven't seen it the last 2 times I have visited, though, and on their website, the elephant isn't listed). In the summer, it is very humid and hot in this area (VERY HUMID), and you are not allowed to bring in water bottles since the caps from the bottles may be consumed by the animals. Also, if you buy water inside the area, they will take off and throw away the cap! Just something to keep in mind.
