Strolling through dozens of towering palm trees, beautiful orchids, and other exotic plants and flowers in The Butterfly Palace's living rainforest is only part of your adventure. Your admission also includes...
These living, flittering jewels aren't ordinary backyard butterflies... unless you happen to live near the equator. The exotic butterflies in the aviary are imported under strict USDA control, and can be found in precious few collections around the world. The aviary’s tropical environment is also home to a unique collection of birds and other exotic botanical specimens.
Slow down, relax, and enjoy the peaceful rainforest surroundings of the aviary, or gear-up with a real Pith Helmet, kid-sized binoculars and magnifying glass (all provided). Whatever degree of adventure you choose, be sure to have your camera ready!
Meet Harry, our blue-tongued skink. He's used to visitors!
Genuine rainforest inhabitants, like vividly-colored poison dart frogs, salamanders, geckos, and even giant cockroaches, are on display in our interactive learning environment. Get a really close view of things at the light microscope display, and take a peek inside a frog with the virtual frog dissection kiosk.
There's as much to learn as there is to see!
Your Butterfly Palace excursion begins in the heart of the tropics!
Adventurers of all ages experience the amazing life of a butterfly and other insect friends found in the rainforest. It's great family fun, appropriate for even the younger adventurers in your exploration party.
Left? Right? Straight ahead? Backtrack a bit?
Test your explorer navigation skills in the Emerald Forest Mirror Maze, where twisting and turning around every corner may lead to the exit... or some 'course correction' for your journey.
It's evening in the Emerald Forest, with small patches of light just peeking through the trees, so adult accompaniment with your young adventurers is recommended.
Stretch your way through a tangled web of vines and weave your way through this unique adventure... but don't let the obstacles get in your way! Inside the Banyan Tree Bungee Adventure, you'll encounter rocks, fallen pillars, and hundreds of vines stretching from floor to ceiling at various angles. It's a unique and fun challenge for both the young and young at heart!
It's time to outfit your crew with anything-but-typical memories!
Find personal treasures, extraordinary gifts, and a variety of butterfly items to commemorate your visit.
