Niagara Parks

Niagara Falls, ON – Niagara Parks is a world class destination, offering a range of relevant and signature services and experiences that aligns with its mandate and engages visitors along the entire 56-kilometre Niagara River corridor. In order to continue to deliver exceptional experiences for its guests, Niagara Parks will be temporarily closing the Butterfly Conservatory and Niagara’s Fury attractions to the public, beginning on Monday, January 8, 2018, to undertake annual maintenance programs.

Butterfly Conservatory

The Niagara Parks Butterfly Conservatory will be closed for an approximately six-week period and is scheduled to reopen in time for both the Family Day and U.S. President’s Day holiday weekend, beginning on Saturday, February 17, 2018. During the closure, Wonder Pass holders will be able to substitute their admission to the Butterfly Conservatory for passes to Bird Kingdom.
The maintenance program will include the replacement of the intricate netting, which lines the interior of the Conservatory. While this work takes place, new flooring within the gift shop and entry area of the facility will be installed and final renovations will be completed to the front exhibit area, creating a multi-purpose auditorium space, which will host and accommodate future exhibits and events at this location.

Niagara’s Fury

From Monday, January 8 to Friday, February 2, annual maintenance will also be required at the Niagara’s Fury attraction, located at Table Rock Centre. This annual closure allows Niagara Parks staff to carry out needed maintenance to ensure the continued operation of the spectacular 4D attraction and movie experience, which is scheduled to reopen to the public on Saturday, February 3. During the closure, Wonder Pass holders will be able to substitute their admission to Niagara’s Fury for passes to the IMAX Theatre.
