“Magical!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 10, 2013

We loved it here. We've been to a few butterfly conservatories in different cities and this one is by far the best. It's a good size and not so humid. There were hundreds of butterflies in all sizes and colours. I had one land on my arm but my daughter wasn't so lucky much to her extreme disappointment. The display on chryalis was very interesting. The plants and flowers were impressive as well.

We found a coupon in one of the hotel coupon books. We would definitely recommend to all - adults and kids.

“Butterfly building great”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 9, 2013

We got her late in the day and my wife visited the butterfly house and I went for the rose garden. She raved about the butterfly house. Not a lot of roses were blooming at the time but would look great when they are blooming

“Beautiful Experience!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 9, 2013

The number of beautiful butterflys is absolutely amazing. It's a one in a lifetime experience that no one should miss. The Canadian side of the Falls has so much to see and do. This butterfly conservatory is one cool place.

“Butterflies as your pets!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 9, 2013

I never imagined we will spend 2-3 hours in a butterfly conservatory but it is hard to leave when you end up with butterflies as your temporary pets:-) There is a brief video before you enter the actual butterfly conservatory. Then once you enter you see hundreds of butterflies fluttering around - you also see many dead ones. Then the process begins - you resist trying to hold or touch or catch them; then you see a few lucky people who are chosen by the butterflies to land on; you envy them and keep hoping that one will choose to land you you. Gradually, you figure out a way to put your finger out and get them to land on your finger or transition those who are peacefully sitting on a branch or leaf on to your finger. Finally, you may like we did end up with some who do not want to let go of you. There were a couple of butterflies who kept coming back to us even after we put them down on a leaf when we wanted to leave. Overall, a wonderful experience for adults and children. Of course, ended up taking hundreds of pictures. Do have to sometimes tell some children/teens to not try to grab them. We also got a discount coupon that we got when we bought the adventure pass.
