Spectacular Butterfly World, where the world takes flight! Feel your heart soar as a rainbow of live exotic butterflies, from every rainforest on earth, encircles you in their habitat.
And it's all there ready and waiting for you in sunny Florida!
Butterfly World is a charming, colorful and exciting experience for the kids.
Kids can learn all about these beautiful creatures as they see them up close with their own eyes. An amazing learning experience as they uncover the life cycle of the butterfly, and why they have those patterns on their wings!
The sparkle of iridescent wings guides you down flower-lined pathways, past waterfalls, and up to a cave from which blossoms and tropical mist descend.
Don't miss the live bug zoo, and Witness the Miracle of Metamorphosis as caterpillars munch, chrysalises wait, and new butterflies try their wings for the very first time!
But it's not just butterflies at Butterfly World. Kids can hear the song of tropical hummingbirds and the unmistakable call of the giant macaw.
A nature filled experience for the family in Florida, that gives you an in-depth insight into the lives of some very colorful winged friends.
