It was nice seeing the different types of butterflies. There is so many and they land on your head but they move fast! So cameras maya not get them but it’s relaxing.

If you like butterflies, this is the place to see! Many inforative employees, butterflies everywhere. We were there right when they opened so no crowd. Enterance priced seemed a little high to me but I still enjoyed it.

Did the Butterfly Wonderland and Aquarium Combo and was a wonderful way to spend an oppressively hot day in Scottdale but would be equally enjoyable anytime of the year. Enthusiastic staff and great exhibits.

I am 62, have been to many zoos, aquariums and animal parks, but this was something I've never seen before. The opening 3D movie was a super quality I just wish it was longer than 14 minutes. The chrysalis room was very interesting and of...More

Everything about the facility was done in a first class manner. 3D monarch butterfly movie was very informative. Atrium was loaded with butterflies. We watched a butterfly emerge and spread its wings. Reptile and big bug exhibits were in great shape.

We learned a lot about the life cycle of a butterfly. They have a display of live cocoons so you can actually watch butterflies emerging. Don't miss the video. It's 3-D; so it looks like the butterflies are right over your head. Go into the...More

This seems like a small add-on side exhibit. The butterfly area is hot and humid like you would expect, but I just found it unbearable in an Arizona hot day. I can't fault the place for that, as butterfly habitats are always hot and humid....More

Unfortunately not. Butterfly Wonderland has senior and military discounts, and certain hotels carry a $3 off coupon for guests staying with them. But that is the extent of discounts at this point.
