My family and I did the newly renovated aquarium and we also did the rainforest. The aquarium was huge and very nice. Lots of local critters in the tanks which was neat to see. I loved the seals. They have touching tanks (rays and starfish)....More

Moody gardens had lots to do and is great for a few days visit. There are deals on tickets but current deals didn't suit us with a young child. It is very expensive and limited eating places. Still well worth a visit.

I enjoyed the Rainforest and the Aquarium. The 4D show about sharks was not great. Think it lasted 23 minutes and wasn't the show that was advertised outside the theater. Glasses weren't clean. Guy two chairs down talked the entire time. There are plenty of...More
