My husband and I went through the rainforest and dinosaur pyramids. We really enjoyed them both, but in my opinion it's a bit pricey. The rainforest took us a while to get through and we did get to see a stingray feeding, which was pretty...More

Moody Gardens is large, and unique, and visually impressive, and not something you can whip through in 30 minutes - if you do that, you WILL be disappointed. We did the rainforest and aquarium pyramids and took a ride on The Colonel paddlewheel boat. The...More
