SEA LIFE Arizona’s $1 Million Colorado River Adventure to Open Next Month
Large-Scale Interactive Exhibit to Slated Open Friday, May 19
“SEA LIFE Arizona’s nearly $1 million-dollar new exhibit takes children and families on an interactive journey through one of the state’s most important waterways, and it’s set to open to the public in just over a month.
Slated to open at the Tempe attraction Friday, May 19, the Colorado River Adventure is a twisting and turning interactive tributary that follows the Southwestern landmark from its roots in the Rocky Mountains all the way down to the Sea of Cortez. The large-scale water play table offers an abundance of hands-on features, and guests can pump, twist and turn water while learning about conservation and how land-locked cities, such as Phoenix, affect the world’s rivers and oceans.
“It’s unlike anything we’ve ever had at the aquarium, and it presents a great opportunity for kids and families to get up close and personal with a body of water that’s close to home,” said Joanna Hobday, SEA LIFE Arizona’s General Manager. “It’s a great way for kids to learn more about their local waterways, how they serve the surrounding community and the types of creatures that call them home.
Construction on the nearly $1 million project began in mid-February. SEA LIFE Arizona is located at 5000 Arizona Mills Circle in the Tempe, AZ.
