The Centropolis will be the host of an aviary housing more than 1,000 butterflies on the loose, of about fifty species throughout the summer.
The event, offered by Attraction BFLY, is on Île Jésus since June 24. The facilities is more specifically in the parking lot behind the Colossus movie theater.
Last summer, that activity had only been presented in Quebec’s region.
“After the great success we had with our ephemeral concept last summer, we’re really excited to duplicate the experience this year by settling on two sites very popular for families, thanks to the entertainment offer already in place,” explained Élie Couture, BFLY president and cofounder, via press release.
BFLY Laval notably offers to its visitors the chance to learn more about the life circle of butterflies with an interactive and sensory program, for a cost of less than $15 per person.
The circuit connects seven sunny domes, with four of them serving as a butterfly aviary. The other three are spaces for reception, the screening of a short animated film and the BFLY shop.
A refreshing food offer is also proposed. It is adapted to compensate for the tropical climate recreated inside the facilities necessary for the survival of the butterflies.
This attraction is inspired by the BFLY amusement centre, located in Quartier Dix30 in Brossard, as well as company’s children’s books. (N.P.)
