“A Great Experience!”

Butterfly Wonderland
Ranked #6 of 165 things to do in Scottsdale
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 3, 2014

An excellent attraction but a "little pricey." Very educational and great for kids. Starts with a fantastic 3-D movie explaining the life cycle of the Monarch butterfly as to how it travels during migration. You are then led out to the butterfly auditorium where there are 1000's of butterflies from around the world. Would definitely suggest this location for a visit.

The 3d movie was so cool as were the cocoons and butterfly conservatory. Also liked seeing the bees. I did feel like it was overpriced (about $50 for two adults and a three year old). I also felt like the facility was really crowded but it was a Saturday.

We've been to Costa Rica to the La Paz Waterfall which has one of the worlds largest butterfly exhibits. Butterfly wonderland while pricey is a one of its kind and worthwhile. My kids are 11 and 14 and we went with my aunt and uncle. Everyone liked it

We went here with 6 adults and 2 kids (ages 5 and 2) and we all enjoyed out time there. The experience begins with a 3D film, which is educational and interesting. This is followed by the butterfly enclosure. The butterflies are diverse and beautiful. Personally, I would like to have had some information about the different species available, but it was still a neat experience. Following that, there is a room with honeybees, spiders, and an ant colony and then a small aquarium. The variety is nice and keeps the kids entertained.

We would NOT recommend this place as it is very expensive and fairly small for the price. We do a lot of wildlife parks and nature areas and this one is definitely overpriced. There are not enough employees in the butterfly conservatory and there are way too many people. The butterflies are beautiful and the plant life is nice but fir the expense I would recommend an aquarium or Out Of Africa before this.
