Do you have children on winter break during the holidays or visitors form out of town to entertain?  OdySea is hosting a super fun event on December 21 through January 6th, 2018.  OdySea will set up a full size ice skating rink with skate rentals. There will be holiday mascots, fire pits, s’mores roasting, train rides and plenty of photo opportunities.  This event sounds like a ton of fun for kids and adults.  Professional figure skaters are performing; there will be falling snow with special effects and cozy fire pits to enjoy a hot chocolate or s’mores.  The cost is $ for 5 all ages and includes ice skate rental + 30 minute skating time.  You can get more info on scheduled events on but the ice rink hours are as follows:

OdySea In The Desert is a fairly new venue to Scottsdale.  OdySea in the Desert is a 35-acre, entertainment destination featuring 20 restaurants, retail and amusement establishments that encircle a one-acre bustling courtyard.  There are several water features and a center stage with complimentary entertainment that can be enjoyed by the general public.  There’s always something offered to residents and visitors.  I love taking my Alaska friends to OdySea!

Let me know what you thought of this event!  Happy Holidays!
