Crystal Lagoons® is about to break ground of its latest crystalline lagoon in the United States. Knowing as Glendale, in Arizona, the project is a one-of-a-kind attraction known as Crystal Lagoons Island Resort, a mixed-use project unique to the Southwest.
The main feature of the large-scale entertainment hub will be an 11-acre Public Access Lagoons™, also known as PAL™, a paradise-like lagoon surrounded by white sand beaches, which can be accessed via ticketed entry.
“Crystal Lagoons, the World’s Top Amenity®, is excited to bring the first branded Crystal Lagoons Island Resort entertainment destination to Glendale, Arizona,” says Iván Manzur, Senior VP of Sales de Crystal Lagoons US Corp.
In addition to the lagoon, the project will include 7 islands, each with their own theme, retail spaces, Fly and 4-D theaters, venue space, restaurants, a family entertainment center, amusement rides, office space, 600 plus hotel rooms and more.

“I am so proud of the continued successes in the sports and entertainment district,” says Glendale Mayor Jerry Weiers. “An amenity of this magnitude adds to Westgate’s mega event appeal and will generate significant revenue to support residents, businesses, and the state as a whole. A project of this type is a testament to the trust and faith that businesses continue to have in Glendale.”
Another key attraction with the resort that brings a unique food and beverage experience to visitors is Aerophile’s Aerobar. At 130-feet tall, it will be the highest element in the development and will provide guests a unique view of the sports & entertainment district and the valley. Similar attractions already operate in France and Dubai.
The Crystal Lagoons Island Resort is planned as a single-phase development that is expected to be open to the public in 2022 ahead of Glendale’s hosting of Super Bowl in 2023.
Upon completion, the Crystal Lagoons Island Resort is estimated to bring 1,800 net new jobs to Glendale.
