If adrenaline-pumping thrill rides are your idea of a good time, you’ll want to add Las Vegas’s Golden Nugget Hotel and Casino to your bucket list.

In true Las Vegas style, the hotel houses a sizable casino, but its real gem is ‘The Tank”—a shark-filled pool in which visitors can get up close and personal with some of nature’s deadliest creatures. Inside, runs a 3-story waterslide that plunges riders straight through the middle of the shark tank in a clear plastic tube, allowing a look at the animals like never before.

Visitors looking for a less terrifying way to enjoy the sea creatures can view The Tank (and those sliding through it!) from the pool or inside the hotel's restaurant. They even offer a behind the scenes tour of the 200,000-gallon aquarium where on-staff marine biologists show how the animals are fed and cared for.

Want to see it for yourself? Watch below as one rider shows the view from their go-pro.
