    Our visit experience on the 29th October, 2014. I, my husband and our visitor from Sweden enjoyed the visit to Butterfly World, but our visit was marred by something that I came across afterwards when we returned home. I had printed out a coupon for five dollars off each person from the internet, and when I presented it to the cashier she stated that it should cost sixty dollars plus tax… there was a bit of confusion when our Swedish visitor should pay as he was not used to our money.. All of a sudden the cost went up, and the price of admission...Read More

    Grand experience! An awesome place to get lost in all the beautiful plant and animal life... Really was breath taking. Prepare to spend 3-4 hrs inside if you like nature and want pictures. So many things to see. :)

    I brought my family yesterday (don't forget your "three dollars off" each member coupon on the website) and each member from 2 to 62 had a wonderful time. It was a little warm out and the park is outside, but there's plenty of shade and an occasional mist to help cool you off. I would have liked for the "guides" to have been more involved, as you have to seek one out should you or a family member have a question, but at least they are available to "seek out". The plants and flowers are just beautiful and I would have loved to have seen little signs...Read More

    Okay place in the local area. Pricing is pretty high at 25$ person.
    I like shooting butterflies and I have been to a few butterfly gardens. the fact that here they do not allow a tripod or monopod here is a 'one star' low since the images will be pretty shaky if using long lenses.

    Even though thy advertise about humming birds there's not many in the garden.

    disliked it for what you get for the price.

All of a sudden the cost went up, and the price of admission became sixty nine dollars and ninety eight cents. The cost should have been sixty three dollars and sixty cents with the coupon for five dollars off each person, plus tax.

I would have liked for the "guides" to have been more involved, as you have to seek one out should you or a family member have a question, but at least they are available to "seek out". The plants and flowers are just beautiful and I would have loved to have seen little signs on the more beautiful trees and vines to tell us what they are and which ones might be available in the store. I also would have liked to have had a "guide" point out the Caterpillar Room where they grow the exotic butterflies, but again, you have to seek out a guide and ask to even know that room exists. If it's a cool beautiful day, you can spend all day butterfly viewing. If the weather is hot, count on two to two and a half hours before you have to seek out the Air Conditioning. keep your eye on your children as they can wonder out without supervision. All in all, a great time and a great place to bring the relatives from up north. There are plenty of benches in the shade and cool snacks.
