The Tank at the Golden Nugget Casino provides an escape to a tropical environment amidst the desert heat. The recent renovation to the pool area included water-retaining projects that Reynolds Polymer Technology was deeply involved with.
The largest phase of the renovation involved building a 200,000 gallon (nearly 757,000 liter) cylindrical aquarium to be mounted in the center of the swimming pool. This cylindrical aquarium lets swimmers come nose-to-nose with five different species of shark, southern stingrays, and smaller colorful fish – but remain protected behind several inch thick acrylic.
A key feature of this luxiry pool and shark tank is that a three-story tall, clear acrylic waterslide tunnels directly through this massive aquarium and dumps riders out in the swimming pool that surrounds the tank.
