New Dinosaur Attraction Delays Opening to Mid-December

My Local News Arizona - Advertisement

The grand opening of a brand new attraction in Scottsdale has been pushed back several weeks.

Pangaea Land of the Dinosaurs, a permanent exhibit of life size, animatronic prehistoric creatures, announced last week that its grand opening had been rescheduled to Tuesday, December 12.  The attraction, an addition to OdySea Aquarium, was previously set to open on Friday, November 24.

Officials did not offer an explanation for the delay. Anyone who has purchased a ticket for days and times prior to Dec. 12 will be able to reschedule a visit using their current ticket.

This indoor dinosaur attraction has been generating buzz for it’s interactive educational center and impressive setup that transports visitors back in time to the dinosaur era when these massive animals roamed the very land we live on today. Once open, guests will see more than 50 life-size animatronic dinosaurs, with fun activities such as fossil excavations, face painting, balloon art and much more.

The attraction joins several others on the Salt River Reservation that have opened in the last few years, including OdySea Aquarium, Butterfly Wonderland and Dolphinaris. 

East of Scottsdale, Pangaea Land of the Dinosaurs is located at 9500 East Via de Ventura

I am a multimedia journalist and proud graduate from the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism & Mass Communication. I am originally from Minnesota, and I love learning about my second home, Arizona, and all of it's awesome communities through my contributions to My Local News! When I was a little girl, I created my own "newspaper" for my neighborhood and spent all my time writing, printing and sending each edition to my loyal subscribers (AKA my family and neighbors!). Now, it's a dream come true to be able to write everyday and have a positive impact on communities through my reporting. In my free time, I love to travel, hike, cook and spend time with my family and friends.
