My kids were enthralled by all the butterflies in the atrium. They loved being surrounded by them. They also enjoyed the 3D movie. However, the pricing on this attraction is a bit steep for the overall event. BUT it's still a very beautiful experience.

Thank you for your review, WNancy. Butterfly Wonderland has much more to offer than the three things mentioned, such as our Emergence Gallery, Spineless Giants, and our Tropical Waters exhibits. If you you missed any of these please reach out to us at guestrelations@butterflywonderland.com.

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.

I do not remember that. I was an out of state attendee too, but it didn't cross my mind to ask about that. It wasn't expensive in my opinion. Definitely worth the admission.
