New Las Vegas Mermaid School

September 23, 2022

What’s one of the most often asked question we receive?

“How can I be a mermaid?”

The Silverton mermaids — the mythical creatures that swim in our aquarium — have definitely put our resort on the map.  And why not?  Legend has it that spotting a mermaid would bring good luck to sailors.  We hear it also works for gamblers in our casino.

But how can a guest join the ranks of these amazing creatures?

As of this week, you now have an opportunity to put on some fins and become a mermaid yourself… for at least a morning!

The new Mermaid School for Adults (for ages 19 and older) and Mermaid School for Teens (for ages 13-18) gives you that opportunity.  These two new classes join Mermaid School for Kids (for ages 7-12), a program we launched in 2019.

As part of the magical 90-minute Las Vegas Mermaid School experience, fans are transformed into a famed Silverton mermaid and swim in the casino’s 117,000-gallon aquarium, along with thousands of tropical fish and rays.

 Each session includes:

  • A mermaid “warm up” class
  • A Mermaid School photo op
  • A mermaid swim in the aquarium with a tail (sizes available up to XXXL)
  • A behind-the-scenes tour of the aquarium and the sea life that lives within it
  • A voucher for a free post-class mimosa at a casino bar (for participants age 21+)
  • A voucher for a free post-class scoop of gelato at Sundance Grill  (for participants ages 19 or 20)
  • A voucher for 15 percent discount on breakfast or brunch at Sundance Grill
  • And, of course, the experience of a lifetime.

All equipment, including goggles, is provided.  Participants need only bring a swimsuit or towel.  Reservations must be booked at least 24 hours in advance. There is a minimum of two participants per class and a maximum of four.   Note:  this program is intended for participants who are strong swimmers. This is not a scuba program.  Mermaid tails are available up to size XXXL.
