    A pair of Niagara Parks attractions will be closed temporarily over the next few weeks.

    The shutdowns at the Butterfly Conservatory and Niagara’s Fury attractions are to accommodate for annual maintenance programs. These closures allow Niagara Parks staff to carry out needed maintenance to ensure the continued operation of these popular year-round attractions…

    Niagara’s Fury will close on Jan. 16, reopening by Feb. 11. Wonder Pass holders will be able to substitute for admission to NPC’s Floral Showhouse or the IMAX Theatre during this period.

    Conservatory to temporarily close for maintenance

    From the Niagara Falls Review:

    The Niagara Parks Commission’s Butterfly Conservatory will undergo a metamorphosis of sorts in the coming days.

    The popular tourist attraction will temporarily close Jan. 9 to allow staff to carry out general maintenance and cleaning jobs that can’t be completed when the site is open to the public.

    It will re-open Jan. 16.

    The large trees and vines in the tropical enclosure will be trimmed back, plants will be rearranged and paths will be given a good scrub down, said curator Cheryl Tyndall.

    The seven-day closure will also allow for the first phase of a project to renovate the auditorium.
