Emerald Forest Mirror Maze
Exploring the rainforest beneath its thick, green canopy is a dream most people never get to experience. At The Butterfly Palace and Rainforest Adventure in Branson, visitors have the opportunity to have a peak into what this journey might feel like. Stepping into the Emerald Forest Mirror Maze and it is immediately apparent that everything is not exactly as it appears. Left? Right? Straight ahead? Backtrack a bit? As you make your way through the twist and turns of the Emerald Forest your explorer navigational skills will definitely be tested! Just when you think you have mastered the course you find yourself lost in the twist and turns of the rainforest and are forced to make a course correction. Don’t forget it is evening in the Emerald Forest, with small patches of light just peeking through the trees, so adult accompaniment is recommended for our youngest of explorers!
Banyan Tree Adventure
The Bungee Adventure located on the second floor of The Butterfly Palace is a favorite of all our guests from the oldest to the youngest. The maze is modeled after the Banyan Tree which grows in the rainforest. The tangled web of rope “vines” that hang from the ceiling to the floor simulates the roots of the Banyan Tree. As explorers weave their way through this unique adventure they will encounter many obstacles. Don’t give up as you navigate your way around rocks, fallen pillars and hundreds of vines stretched from floor to ceiling at various angles. Don’t miss the Bungee Adventure during your rainforest experience. Guests spend as much time as they like in there and the majority of our brave adventurers come out with lots of laughter and a smile!
