If you have a dinosaur lover in your family like we do in ours, they are going to absolutely love Pangaea in the OdySea Complex in Scottsdale.
Located right off of the 101 and Via de Ventura Blvd in Scottsdale, Pangaea is part of the large complex finished a few years ago that houses OdySea, Dolphinarius, Polar Play, Butterfly Wonderland, Laser Mirror Maze and restaurants as well!
Pangaea is located on the bottom floor of the Odysea Complex, almost exactly across from the OdySea Complex.
There were different frames with Dinosaurs all over them to look at. I don’t think they are a permanent structure. But, they show the 16 dinosaur species represented in Pangaea (there are over 50 robotic dinos in Pangaea)!
One of the many dinos found at Pangaea!
Entrance area and ticket booth from the inside.
A Large Gift shop with all the dino gear you can dream of!
And the entrance. The drapes will often be pulled back, but something to think about if you are bringing a stroller. There was plenty of floor space for strollers, but a few of these draperies to get past.
The green screen for the photos. They were supposed to look like they were scared of the dinosaurs. Ummm, I think they didn’t understand that direction. Actually, Dimples looks too cool..
There were so many cool effects from the dinosaurs-the sounds, the lighting and all the information through the tour guides, the tablets and the map that you can receive at the front desk.
Tony was our tourguide and knew quite a bit about dinosaurs. Munchie and he had great conversations. They also used a microphone with a little personal amplifier, because it is loud in there. I heard that they will be turning down the volume of the dinos-but something to keep in mine if you have little ones with sensitive ears.
Behind the ride on dinosaurs will be a jump house/maze eventually. Unfortunately due to some manufacturing issues, the jump house has been delayed for now.
There is a “make your own Dinosaur” park with magnets-fun for the little ones if they do not want to go in the jump house.
There are also dino sized seats to take off and on your shoes, and a large egg to see your shoes, and seating for adults to wait for their little climbers. This is included with admission.
Also included are the claw dig areas-
There are opportunities for other activities that have an additional cost:
There was also Tattoo Art and Face Painting, but since my kids were…eh hem…supposed to fall asleep on the way home we decided not to do that!
There are also lots of photo opportunities inside and outside of Pangaea!
My kids really loved seeing the dinosaurs come alive, and I can’t wait until they open up the jump house to check out too. The design is really well thought out with lots to look at and check out. If you want to do all of the activities, buying a pass for all of them and tickets into Pangaea looks to be the most economical. But, they do have kiosks nearby if you decide to purchase the extra activities once you are inside.
(These prices are from December 6, 2017 and are subject to change!)
Tickets into Pangaea are good for 90 minutes. After you finish looking at the dinosaurs, you can go upstairs and eat with them too. There are no bathrooms inside of Pangaea, but are just around the corner (outside) of the building to the right. The bathrooms are stroller friendly and have baby changing areas.
Birthday parties that are scheduled with Pangaea would start in the Land of the Dinosaurs and end in the grill.
