Give The Bird Kingdom a Flutter

By on 2

Wondering what to do with the kids?  Pull them away from their video games and head for Bird Kingdom in Niagara Falls where they can have a totally interactive experience with a whole flock of new feathered friends.

The largest free-flying indoor aviary in the world, Bird Kingdom offers a 40-foot waterfall, tropical plants, and hundreds of birds from around the world as well as a collection of saltwater fish, spiders, bats, snakes, skinks, and reptiles.  Their tropical world is the perfect escape from the wintry winds outside. In the Main Aviary alone, you’ll find an impressive 50,000 sq. feet of tropical rainforest housing more than 400 birds – 80 different species in all.  If brilliant colours that come in tiny packages are what puts the wind under your wings, be sure to drop by the Small Aviary to see more than 40 different species, some of which are so small, you could fit half a dozen birds on your palm – all at once!

Lizard lovers, snake fanciers and turtle fans can get up close and personal with a huge range of reptiles from around the world in the Encounter Room. Those whose tastes run to the dark side of things will enjoy a visit to the Nocturnal Room where bats, owls and other creatures of the night are just waiting to creep you out…er…to meet you!

Be sure to make a stop at the Javanese Tea House, an authentic 125-year-old nobleman’s house from the island of Java. It’s unlike anything you’ll see elsewhere and well worth a visit!

    The Javanese Tea House is amazing, completely built without nails, very cool. My wife, son and I went last year for an afternoon to the bird kingdom and had a blast.
