It's fun to walk by and see MUFASA. In the habitat there were two people in the display with two lions. Not as entert...

Yes, the lions are cute and furry. But they are also lazy, lazy, lazy. I've stayed at the MGM at least once a year for the past 6-7 years... and everything I walk by.. these things are playing dead.  I've seen them awake just once... and it wasn't doing anything exciting, it was just sitting and staring at me... p...

I am a fan of this exhibit because my boys love it.  Twice we were able to see the lions being fed by hand and one time the trainer was playing with the lions.  We have only seen the female lions in the habitat and a few months back we were lucky enough to be there when they had a baby lion available for pictures.  I believe it was $20 but I thought I would seize the opportunity because the lady I spoke with at the gift shop said they did not expect any new baby lions any time soon and they actually went three years without a baby lion being born.  My boys loved having their picture taken so right there it was worth the price.  The glass is also sound proof to the lions I was told which I really liked.  I ac...

"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. How true that is I honestly don't know, what I do know is the lions were beautiful and they didn't seem em...

Love the fact that the King of Mammals is the Lion. Fantastically able to view these beautiful animals in an African-type surrounding encased in acrylic glass enclosure, is a one-of-a-kind habitat in MGM Grand Resort & Casino. "MGM" stands for Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer. It is the most powerful movie production studio in Hollywood since 1915 that produces major motion pictures, have vast studio sets and very famous top-grossing movie stars. Its films open with a roaring lion which is known as Leo, the Lion. As MGM's trademark, it is fitting that the MGM Grand Resort in Vegas houses these beautiful lions for public viewing. On its hotel frontage is the largest gleaming bronze cast statue of the mighty King of the Be...

I think this place is so cool!   It is not a large exhibit, not like a zoo or anything, but they normally have 2-3 lions for you to see and its completely FREE (I like free!)   Sure, sometimes the lions are asleep, but I've also seen them playing with their toys, interacting with the trainers, and interacting wit...

The lions are all lazy and boring. THey are in captivity. There are no gazelle to chase, hunt or maul. They are fed dead flesh. Poor lions. They have such a boring life. AND with all the kids and drunk people banging on the glass and ooohing and aaahing over their faces smushed against the glass, they must al...

3.5 stars... OK, let me start off by saying I worked 3 years in the MGM Grand's Poker Room and not once did I know that they bring in cubs from time to time for photos! WTF! I wanna hold cubs! Now, I take my nieces here when they visit me to show them the habitat which I know all the details by heart having listened to the recording 9 million times. I guess it's cool to see the lions doing there thing which is usually sleeping with their trainers inside and up close & personally. While we were there the lions did actually play a little bit with their toys but afterward passed out. I didn't know about the cubs until we were inside the cave on the way to the gift shop. I was wondering why people were lined up ...

It's quite appropriate that something in Las Vegas would choose to host a $9 million habitat for lions. Even more appropriate that it's in that one resort with a logo of a gold lion. Sure, it would attract spectators who might potentially spend time in the casino and other attractions at the MGM. Except, there are people who've been to the MGM a great deal of times and yet never felt inclined to visit the Lion Habitat. (Me?) It seems I'm one of the few that was unimpressed by this extraordinary display of wealth & kitschy attempt at grandeur. When I last went in January, however, I was with a friend who hadn't been to Vegas for 15 years and stopped as we passed it on our way to the Rainforest Cafe. We saw on...
