If you’re local to Las Vegas, you have most likely heard of the famous kid-friendly mermaid shows at Silverton Casino. Known as the “Best Free Attraction in Las Vegas”, you’re in for a fun adventure with your kiddos.
We recently visited the Silverton to check out their aquarium, which holds 117,000 gallons of water and thousands of fish.
Three additional aquariums at Bass Pro Shop (connected to Silverton) feature trout, channel catfish, carp, and bass and include a flowing canyon river featuring ducks, turtles, bluegills, and sturgeon.
Not only do they have the mermaid shows for you to enjoy, they also have daily interactive feeding shows with the stingrays!
During the shows, one mermaid will swim through the tank and stop to say hi to all the guests. She will do some flips and tricks and then ascend back up until her next show.
The aquarium is located in the Silverton Casino right as you exit/enter the Bass Pro Shops area.
3333 Blue Diamond Road
Las Vegas, NV 89139
We prefer to park in the Outdoor Worlds – Bass Pro Shop parking lot because I find it easier and more exciting to walk the kids through Bass Pro Shop to see the aquarium and animals prior to exiting into the casino.
The show is right outside the exit, so you don’t have to walk through the casino at all.

Tips For Your Visit
With a two-year-old in two, I was hesitant to see her reaction and to ensure she liked it. Here are some tips from our visit you’ll want to hear.
Park at Bass Pro Shops and walk through that store to the Silverton
Come a little early so you have time to walk through and grab a spot at the tank
Eat before you come, it’s only 15 minutes, but there is nothing worse than hungry kids!
Bring sanitizer, because those tanks are touched by a lot of little ones
