      Map inside the brochure they are handing out at a kiosk in the mall Food Court (where you can also buy advance tickets). Initial tickets will be 12.95 (discount price), but full admission will eventually be $18.50, which is way too much in my opinion. Judging from the outside that I saw, it will not be very big.

      In case you cannot read the white print at top, here are the 20 sections:

      1. Entrance
      2. Introduction
      3. Freshwater streams & lakes
      4. Cave
      5. Shoreline
      6. Rockpool
      7. Harbor
      8. Coral shoaling ring
      9. Tropical bay of rays
      10. Shipwreck
      11. Dive discovery theatre
      12. Ocean view
      13. Temple of the seahorse
      14. Ocean tunnel
      15. Jellyfish
      16. Sea life conservation
      17. Photopoint
      18. Playzone
      19. Shop
      20. Exit

      Thanks for posting this. It's opening even sooner than I expected.

      And still SeaLife sticking to their tried and trusted formula I see - every one they've scratch-built has that same progression from stream to the ocean, every one has a Bay of Rays, an Ocean Tunnel and a Temple of the Seahorse (although this has started becoming Nemo's Kingdom recently...).

      Just the same, from Loch Lomond to Birmingham to Munich to Arizona.


      (so I suppose it must work!)

      Where in Arizona are they constructing this?
    • Maguari
      Missed this bit before - being expensive and not very big is also a SeaLife Centre tradition!
    • Ituri
      It is being constructed in one of the anchor buildings of the Arizona Mills Mall in Tempe.

      @ HIX - Arizona Mills is a large indoor shopping mall right next to the freeway as you enter the Phoenix area from the south. When I stopped there the other day it was VERY BUSY, so this may be a good spot for Sea Life.

      OK, the title threw me - Arizona Sealife. A weird name as Arizona is landlocked.
    There are no comments to display.
