“Pretty Good”
Reviewed October 6, 2012

Bird Kingdom was pretty good. There are tons of beautiful birds to admire as they fly around you. Some will pose for you to take pictures! The set up is nice inside. You can see some reptiles and stuff before you enter the actual bird area. However, i did see some concerns. The Toucan I saw had a badly broken beak. He was the proud one though as he seemed to enjoy all the attention and allowed people to take his picture before moving on to the next set of cameras. Another issue i saw was one of the kids in the area actually kicked one of the birds because it was too close. There NEEDS to be more security in the viewing area to help protect these beautiful birds. The built tropical area these birds live in was well done, but for some of these birds, maybe the wild is where they truly deserve to be so they can truly be appreciated. Overall, it was a cool experience. I just hope more concerns are taken over the birds safety.

“Vinnie Made It An Interesting Visit”
Reviewed October 5, 2012

We walked through the first couple of areas taking it all in. It was interesting seeing all the lizards-iguanas, snakes etc. We enjoyed the first "free" flying area with many types of smaller birds flying all over the room. Loved the colorful array of feathers. When we reached the largest open flying area we saw a strange blue bird with a type of peacock head plumage sitting on the railing. My husband thought he'd see just how close he could get...Turned out VERY close. I snapped a photo and we walked off...only to have the blue bird hop off the rail and proceed to follow my hubby all over! A worker let us know that the bird was named Vinnie. Then Vinnie took a liking to me and wound through my legs, rubbing up against my shins and playfully pecked at my shoes. The worker was there to tell us he was not dangerous. Hubby even petted him...He also went into the Lorakeet cage and paid $2 to feed them. Cheap entertainment for me as I watched 5-6 birds flock along his shoulders, arms and hands. You could take your own photos from outside the cage which I did. It was a nice way to spend 1-2 hours and I think that it would be a great attraction for those with children-provided they are not terrified of birds because they do fly all around you. Thank you Vinnie for making our trip a bit more memorable and definitely a lot more comical.

“beautiful birds”
Reviewed October 5, 2012

They have a peacock walking around, which my kids pet. (not sure if that is allow) There is one area where you can feed the birds and they land on you to feed, that was really cool for my kids.

“unexpected pleasure”
Reviewed October 2, 2012

My wife and I never imagined such a place would be at Niagra Falls. The birds were of such a wide variety, that we lost track of time as be were continually seeing different ones among the folliage. The reptiles and other "creatures" were equally fascinating. A truly unique attraction.
