THIS ATTRACTION IS CLOSED! MGM Grand features a glass-sided lion habitat inside the casino area, in which up to six lions are shown every day. A see-through tunnel runs through the habitat for close-up viewing. The lions are owned by Keith Evans, a trainer of exotic animals, and do not live at the habitat, but at his ranch 12 miles outside Las Vegas.

"Hands down the closest you'll ever get to a Lion; without getting mauled " This habitat is amazing you can actually see 4-6 lions at a time running wild in this big giant glass African like environment and it is just an awesome site. The lions seem to be very tame and friendly. On multiple occasions the lions would come right up to the glass and even motion as if they wanted you to "petted" almost like giant house cat. Definitely an great way to see these amazing animals close up. The trainers come out and would talk about the different lions and how well feed and treated they are, almost like royalty.
