There’s so much to do at OdySea in the Desert, it’s best to spend the day… if not several days, exploring everything this traveler’s oasis offers: from the land of the dinosaurs, to the depths of the ocean, to the amazing inner workings of the human body — time spent at OdySea is an incredible odyssey one won’t soon forget.

What makes OdySea in the Desert a one-of-a-kind entertainment destination are the 5 world-class anchor attractions: OdySea Aquarium, Butterfly Wonderland, BODIES REVEALED, Pangea Land of the Dinosaurs, and Dolphinaris. In addition, this oasis of excitement includes 20 MORE dining, shopping and entertainment venues.

OdySea Aquarium allows visitors to get up-close-and-personal with sharks, otters, penguins, rays, and sea turtles to name a few. What’s more, the aquarium boasts the world’s only rotating aquarium experience (OdySea Voyager), the country’s only indoor underwater walking experience (SeaTREK), an escalator that tunnels through a huge aquatic exhibit, and the only bathroom where instead of checking your style in the mirror you’ll be nose to nose with a shark! Butterfly Wonderland features the largest butterfly conservatory in the country with over 3,000 fluttering butterflies. Guests are immersed in a rainforest and surrounded by butterflies and other rainforest creatures. This live exhibit provides a sensory experience that educates, entertains and connects people of all ages to nature.

Visitors can interact with dolphins on dry land or in the water at Dolphinaris, and journey back to pre-historic time among 80 life-sized animatronic dinosaurs and experience a variety of hands-on activities like fossil digs at Pangea Land of the Dinosaurs. For a limited time, visitors of all ages can explore the human body’s inner beauty in educational and awe-inspiring ways at BODIES REVEALED, where over 200 actual human bodies and specimens are uniquely and respectfully displayed.

Other interactive experiences found at OdySea in the Desert include: Polar Play Ice Bar, Laser + Mirror Maze, Bumper Boats, The OdySea Express Train and Vitality Aqua Massage & Oxygen Bar.
