Dinosaurs Roam the Desert at OdySea

Pangaea Land of the Dinosaurs gave guests the opportunity to walk among the dinosaurs. A life-size Spinosaurus moves its head, tail and jaw as guests come to see him.

Dinosaurs are roaming around in the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community.

The new exhibit Pangaea Land of the Dinosaurs opened on December 12 inside OdySea in the Desert on the western edge of the Community.

Pangaea is home to more than 50 life-size animatronic dinosaurs moving in prehistoric habitats. Interactive exhibits include face painting, fossil excavations, an obstacle course, airbrush tattoos, sifting, etching and dino kart rides, among others.

On December 6, SRPMIC Council member Michael Dallas, Scottsdale Mayor Jim Lane and Scottsdale City Council member Guy Phillips were in attendance at the ribbon-cutting.

“This is a very proud day here,” Dallas said. “The Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community is proud to welcome Pangaea Land of the Dinosaurs to OdySea in the Desert. Now visitors to our Community will be able to walk among the dinosaurs. OdySea in the Desert has been a great family addition to the Talking Stick Entertainment District. We are happy to see the facility continues to grow and offer such unique and memorable experiences for visitors of all ages.”

OdySea in the Desert is located at 9500 E. Via De Ventura and is open seven days a week: 9 a.m. to 9 p.m., Sunday to Thursday; and 9 a.m. to 10 p.m., Friday and Saturday. It takes about 90 minutes to explore the exhibits. Last entry time is 90 minutes before closing.
