5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2008

If you love butterflies, tropical flowers and interesting insects, this is the place for you. Our boys loved having butterflies land on them while exploring this lush and massive indoor garden. Almost every color and size of butterfly you can imagine is represented here. One of them had to be 2 feet wide ? yikes! The stick insects and praying mantis were a favourite too. Great fun for everyone.
