  • It was a very family friendly event. Well worth the money. I liked how they had warm areas set up for families to be able to stop and warm up. I would recommend it to anyone. It's was definitely a hit for the babies. They loved all of the lights.
  • They have put a considerable amount of work to make this place beautiful. There are hundreds of varieties of plants and flowers. There‚Äôs a small butterfly house, but it was empty during our visit. Botanical also contains a Bird watching forest. Located in the middle of a densely populated area in Wichita, I was amazed by how quiet the surrounding was. It is a perfect location for enthusiastic photographers who wants to get some great macro and bird photography. They also have a spectacular light show during the holiday season. The workers are trying really hard to keep the place clean so please take only photos and leave only foot prints.
  • Beautiful and amazing light show. The place was packed but it was not a problem to see all of the displays. The volunteers were wonderful and the organizers made it so easy to get around. The only thing that could be be a problem is that you miss several displays because there is so much to see. It is worth walking around the second time to find the displays you missed the first time.
  • Recently went to Botanica with my family for the illuminations. The set up is really pretty and it was good size. However, during this time it is super busy. Which yeah, not a big deal. But the sidewalks and walkways are VERY narrow. We all had to walk single file and were still being bumped into by oncoming traffic. This place isn't very good if you have a stroller or wheelchair because of the fact of the narrow sidewalks. Also, I thought that there would be more light shows where the lights move and music is played. This only happens in one area and it's not very spectacular. If you want my honest opinion, take your kids and family down streets of Wichita and Maize and you'll see better lights that your kids can enjoy more for FREE.
  • I enjoy bringing my family into Botanica every year. Illuminations is so pretty and such a neat experience for the whole family. It is a must see for the whole family and it is nice as it runs so long so you have many opportunities to attend.
