Golden Nugget’s “The Tank” – Review

  • IN A NUTSHELL: Only an out-of-the-way sunning area was ever topless, but now a top is required everywhere. Still worth going to for the slide and the sharks.

Golden Nugget’s Tank Pool – Sorta Topless, Very Cool

The Tank is not a topless pool.

So what are we doing here?

If you’re not too disappointed in the dearth of nipples here, and you can put up with all the ankle biters, this has got to be one of the coolest pools in Vegas. It’s big and has two waterfalls, plus a giant saltwater fish tank right in the middle of it, so you can swim beside the sharks.

In addition, a great waterslide starts up on the third deck and becomes a clear tube on the way down that goes right through the fish tank. There are also lots of cute girls in bikinis, but even more kids, who make a racket that can be heard over the top of the loud rock, funk, and hiphop music. This is like a family pool-party scene and it’s fun for all. I visited The Tank on a hot Saturday afternoon when it was packed, but despite the crowd, I had no trouble finding a deck chair in the shade.

Inexpensive food—sandwiches, wraps, burgers, salads, nachos, etc.—is served by waitresses. Prices range from $6.99 for a hot dog to $11.99 for a chicken Caesar salad. There are also two full bars and cocktail servers. A domestic beer is $6.

Sorry, no titty ball. Have fun on the waterslide.
