In case you were wondering, here's a description of each attraction from the Moody Gardens website...
Rainforest Pyramid: The first built of the three pyramids is a 10-story glass structure that is home to more than 1,000 species of plants and animals. After a $25 million enhancement in 2011, visitors are able to experience more rainforest life from around the world, including Africa, Asia and the Americas. Many of the animals within the pyramid are free-roaming, like the Cotton-Top Tamarin and White-Faced Saki monkeys.
Aquarium Pyramid: The blue pyramid is the largest pyramid on the Moody Gardens property, but also the largest aquarium in Texas. With 1.5 million gallons of water, the building houses life from five distinct ocean environments, and the collection in this popular pyramid includes seals, sea lions, sharks, thousands of fish and more than 100 penguins. A $37 million multi-phased renovation was completed in 2017, ensuring Moody Gardens’ guests enjoy a fun and awe-inspiring experience wonderfully complemented with conservation messages that underscore the vital importance of the oceans. Visitors travel from the Gulf of Mexico to South Atlantic, South Atlantic, South Pacific, North Pacific and Caribbean. Each ocean exhibit highlights different marine sanctuaries and aspects of our relationship to the seas. There are also a variety of new exhibits and surprises, including the addition of the tropical Humboldt penguins and touch tanks featuring jellies, stingrays and other crustaceans.
Discovery Museum: Traveling exhibits that explore the world of science are showcased in the pink Discovery Pyramid. Starting Oct. 5, guests can now experience Skeletown. This interactive exhibit examines bone biology, human and animal bone specimens and how bones are part of cultures all around the world
MG 3D Theater: The giant 3D screen in this theater is the biggest in Texas, measuring 60 by 80 feet. In November 2014, the theater unveiled the world’s first state-of-the-art Giant Screen 6 Primary Laser Projector System. Audiences see films nearly three and a half times brighter than standard theaters, with vibrant colors and new 3D glasses technology. Along with the theater’s top-of-the-line surround sound system, this new laser projection further distinguishes the MG 3D Theater as one of the premier cinema venues. Most of the films highlight the wonders of nature and history, as well as the importance of conservation.
4D Special FX Theater: The theater and seating in this special attraction adds a whole new dimension to life. High-definition 3D projection combines with seat sensors, leg ticklers, wind, snow, scent and water splashes to engage all the senses. Shark: A 4-D Experience and San Andreas 4-D Experience are now showing.
Colonel Paddlewheel Boat: The Colonel is a charming 675-passenger, 1800s-style paddlewheel boat that takes guests on hour-long cruises around Offatts Bayou.
Palm Beach: As the only white-sand beach in Galveston, Palm Beach has become a huge attraction - More - during the summer months. Moody Gardens spent $5 million in 2011 to add a lazy river, wave pool and water slides to the seaside adventure park, which also includes a splash pad, spray arches and a sand volleyball court. Enjoy the concert series Bands on the Sand each Friday and Saturday night with live music, capped off with a fireworks show over Offatts Bayou.
Sky Trail® Explorer Ropes Course: Challenge your agility, balance and strength as you encounter the fivetier Ropes Course that is open year-round. Ranging from Criss-Cross Tight Ropes to Burma Buckets, the 81-foot Ropes Course is filled with 48 fascinating obstacles suitable for the whole family to enjoy. Children who are shorter than 48 inches can also take on an adventure of a smaller scale on the Sky Tykes™ Ropes Course.
Moody Gardens Zip Line: Thrill seekers can take adventure to a whole new level at the Moody Gardens Zip Line, open year-round. Snap into the harness, step to the edge of the zip line platform and glide over Palm Beach and the Lazy River 60 feet in the air for a bird’s eye view of the Moody Gardens Pyramids and tropical gardens.
