Meet lions, white tigers, panthers, leopards and last but certainly not least, a family of Bottlenosed Dolphins at Siegfried & Roy' Secret Garden and Dolphin Habitat. Located in the Mirage Hotel and Casino, the habitat is a serene environment where families cannot only view these exotic animals but truly get to know them as well. For additional fees, visitors can participate in memorable, once in a life-time experiences such as ''Painting with the Dolphins,'' in which guests paint a canvas and then take it over to the dolphin pool to let these creative creatures finish the masterpiece. Participants can take home the work of art as well as a certificate and photo of the experience. Guests can also play trainer for a day in a special dolphin trainer instructional program. However, just a simple visit to Siegfried & Roy' Secret Garden and Dolphin Habitat in order to say hello to the animals is sure to enchant parents and children alike.

My kids could have watched the dolphins all day!Flag review
Siegfried and Roy's Secret Garden & Dolphin Habitat is a great place to visit, if you have small children, in Las Vegas. My children would have gladly stayed in the underground viewing area for hours. Even after we left to go look at the tigers and other large cats, they really wanted to go back and see the dolphins. It's a really great way to get up close and see the dolphins play. They weren't nearly as interested in the cats, primarily because at the time we went, they were rather in active. I think they would have been more interested, if it had been around feeding time or another more active period.
Tips for Families
Most of the habitat is outside, and even the part that's underground has openings, so save the habitat for a cooler day or go early in the morning or later in the evening.

First a disclaimer: I work at one of the other MGM properties, so I received discount tickets. So I won't comment on the value, but I have been twice and enjoyed it each time. If you have family visiting that includes children, there are only so many things to do and see that would be appropriate. Both my niece and nephew (ages 5 and 7) loved this. There were two baby dolphins at the time of our visit and it was fun to see them following their moms around the pool trying to jump. There was staff on hand around the pools to answer questions and we got to see some of their exercises. The over all exhibit is not that big, but you can easily spend at least an hour here. Be aware that much of it is in direct...
The Secret Gardens - Mirage Hotel & Casino http://www.mirage.com/... We stayed at the Mirage for a few days over Thanksgiving and while we were there we did quite a few activities. One of them was The Secret Gardens & Dolphin Encounter. The Secret Gardens & Dolphin Encounter is comprised of 2 parts, with the first being a large dolphin exhibit with a couple of pools and training shows. This seemed very similar to other "swim and play with the dolphin" experiences that we've done and seen like Dolphin Quest in Hawaii. There were packages of different durations & prices that you could do if you like but the weather was too cold for us. Like most of the other people, we walked around for about a half hour ...
I visited in August 2011, and enjoyed it, although it's fairly limited in scope. The dolphins were active, although it was obviously a fairly small space for them compared to dedicated marine parks. They seemed healthy and active, and the underwater viewing port was great. There was a baby dolphin swimming in circles with its mother. There are no tricks or shows, just the animals behaving in a fairly natural way. The cats were all quite lazy and sleeping (it was mid-day and very hot, so this was to be expected), but seemed to be healthy and doing ok. They also had fairly small enclosures -- not small cages, but certainly not enough space to run or exhibit full range of feline behavior. I really don't thi...
