I find this place totally fascinating. We only went to the butterfly portion and skipped the aquarium. You start off by seeing a 3D movie about the migration of monarch butterflies. (If this movie does not make you want to go home and plant a butterfly bush, you have no soul.) After the movie, you make your way in to a room where you can watch butterflies “hatching” from their cocoons. Marvelous! The best part is obviously when they turn you loose in the main arena where there are large plants, trees, pathways, flowers, and thousands of butterflies. Little kids, teenagers, seniors and even a middle age guy like me can take it all in and appreciate everything.

We took at least a hundred pictures. I highly recommend using the slow-mo video on your iPhone! We spent about 3 hours here. I could have stayed longer, but my teenagers were getting hangry. I think our admission for four of us was $98. It was my second visit, and totally worth it.

We took an afternoon of our trip to visit. It was absolutely worth it. The butterflies were beautiful! The staff were very educated about butterflies- their life cycles & how to just leave them fly so we don't harm them. I was very impressed! Highly recommend to stop here if you have time!

I love this place . The 3D movie is fascinating and so interesting.
Then the interaction with thousands of butterflies is so fun. If you stand or sit still they land all over you. My granddaughter had one on her hand and it stayed as we walked around. Finally we asked for help and she gently helped it go on it's way. Pictures are great to remember such a fun event. I have visited these exhibits in other states. But Scottsdale, AZ is the best!

The Butterfly wonderland is an attraction like no other, in Arizona. The 3d movie is very informative & lifelike. The next step of the exhibit is a tour and self-guided experience into the butterfly sanctuary. It is colorful & peaceful. Located in a misty, greenhouse. The butterflies are in their own habitat; which makes touring it, a transformative experience. They fly about, landing on you and allowing you to feel like you are in a tropical jungle. The "guides", are at the ready to answer any questions & to explain what you are seeing. I took my whole family & our 3yr old grand-daughter, we were all in awe. It is an experience, well worth the money.

Such a lovely and peaceful place to visit and just be able to sit with so many different butterflies. I initially thought it would be boring but found out otherwise. Such a nice place to visit.

If you live in Scottsdale or the Pheonix area. this can be a good few hours out of the heat but at 16.00 a kid and 23.95 a kid you might want to invest in the annual pass.

The butterfly area is really what you are paying for and the area is nice with lots of butterflies. Make sure you and your kids wear bright shirts to attract the butterflies to land on you. That is the highlight of the visit.

But after that aside from the small aquarium and stingray pond, there is not much. Maybe I'm expecting too much for the amount paid.

The pictures they take are for sale in the gift shop at 20,00 a photo. I think if they throw in a souvenir cup or another keepsake for the kids it may make me feel better about the price of the adult and the kids.

This was truly a breathtaking experience. There is a short 3-D film about the life cycle of the monarch butterfly, then you go into the chrysalis room. There were multiple butterflies that emerged while watching. So exciting to see a new butterfly emerge. Then into the main event, the huge butterfly area. I have never seen so many butterflies, so many colors, so many sizes! It was beautiful to just stand and watch them flying everywhere! Truly breathtaking to see an amazing creation of God!

Stayed an extra day in town when I found this place on line. What a wonderful, beautiful experience! You start with a fantastic 3D film on the Monarch butterfly, then you go to a small room where you can see the beginnings of butterflies, then the best of all is when you walk through the door into the butterfly enclosure - how awesome it was to see all the thousands of butterflies all over, a few landed on me. the variety and colors are amazing - you will love it and if you have kids make sure to bring them. After the enclosure they have spiders, scorpions, roaches and reptiles on display. So very much worth the extra day in town!

A nice place to visit with your grandkids or family but it is expensive. Our admission for a combo ticket along with OdySea was about $51 each with a senior discount. Had to hit the IRA for that one. Seriously, the initial 3D movie on the journey of the Monarch butterfly was great. The butterfly room put you into the humid tropics for a nice quick stroll among the flying beauties. Spiders, scorpions and a few reptiles were safely quartered in adjacent rooms. It was not crowded when we visited on October 11 but I imagine it can be in the busy months.
