Butterfly Palace and Rainforest Adventure Roadschool Guide

Butterfly Palace and Rainforest Adventure

Branson, MO


Reciprocal: None

Full Price Admission Cost: $19.95

WWWW Rating: 4 out of 5 stars

This attraction actually boasts a number of different activities. These include an awesome mirror maze unlike any I’ve ever seen before, a small movie theater that alternates between a 3D film and a traditional educational film, a cool bungee cord obstacle course—referred to as the “Banyan Tree Adventure”—and a small collection of rainforest critters. There are members of staff available to answer any and all questions about these animals, and special encounters happen throughout the day, during which a staff member will allow visitors to pet an animal.
All that said, the main draw here is the incredible butterfly habitat they house on the second floor. This place is absolutely beautiful. It holds a number of plants, a couple of adorable birds, and of course dozens of butterflies. There are butterflies of all shapes, sizes, and colors, and they are everywhere! Best of all, by using one of the “nectar flowers”, or sometimes just by standing very still, you might just have the opportunity to hold one of these gorgeous creatures.
Honestly, even without all of the extras included in admission, we would definitely visit this butterfly house again. The mazes, movies, and other creatures are a wonderful bonus though, and they certainly make this attraction a good value.

Quick Tips

  • Parking is free and super easy.
  • Admission is good for three days, meaning you can come and go as you please for a few days after you buy your wrist bands.
  • Because it is meant to be an environment similar to a rainforest, the butterfly house is hot and humid. Dress accordingly.
  • No food is sold here. However, you shouldn’t need more than 3 hours to see the entire attraction, meaning you can easily visit between meals.
  • Look for discounts in the coupon books found at brochure stands around town.
