New Aquarium Opening in Scottsdale, Ariz.

See recent posts by Lissa Poirot

The desert of Arizona will welcome new aquatic life with the debut of the OdySea Aquarium opening in Scottsdale, Arizona, this summer.

The new 14-acre, two-level aquarium will feature an array of marine life from sharks and penguins to turtles to jellyfish. The aquarium aims to wow, from the lobby’s suspended sphere aquariums with schools of fish inside to acrylic-walled restrooms where sharks swim by and from touch tanks and experiences that take visitors right into the water for up close and personal encounters.

The aquarium is slated to open in Scottsdale in July.
