Odysea Aquarium, Butterfly Wonderland, Dolphinaris Map and Directions

Butterfly Wonderland is in Scottsdale, near the Talking Stick Resort, Salt River Fields and Topgolf. Larger than the Butterfly Garden at Desert Botanical Garden, it is open year-round. Next door, people ages about seven and up (although there is no hard and fast rule about that) will have a blast trying to master the Mirror Maze and the Laser Maze at OdySea Mirror Maze.

In 2016 OdySea Aquarium, one of the largest aquariums in the Southwest, opened in the same complex, as did Dolphinaris Arizona, a place where you can swim with dolphins.
