Scottsdale, Arizona is the next place, with the OdySea Aquarium underway. The Aquarium will feature 16 acres, a two level facility with underwater tunnels to guide visitors through the exhibits and an acrylic escalator to transport guests between levels. Those who can’t use the escalators will not be left out, the aquarium also features an underwater acrylic elevator. Another cool feature will be the bathrooms, which will have a floor to ceiling acrylic wall with sharks swimming around. I like how the aquarium plans to highlight what other aquariums tend to neglect, bathrooms and elevators/escalators. Guests will be excited to experience both. The acrylic underwater tunnels and windows will be designed and supplied by Reynolds Polymer Technology, the same company which designed the fantastic tunnels at Chimelong Ocean Kingdom in China.
