What to expect: A greenhouse butterfly garden, reptile, bug and aquarium exhibits. A 3D movie will be offered at the beginning and there is a gift shop at the end.
Tips: While the 3D movie is great, it is difficult for kids under 3 to sit through. They’ll let you go straight through if you choose to skip it.
Also, they don’t like when you bring your own food. So if you bring snacks, try to eat outside before or after your experience or you can purchase their food in the Cafe.
