Visited the water park area. Lazy pool, wave pool, and beach are nice. Zip line is available for extra $20. Lockers are available along with concession stand. Not a bad place to visit.

Rainforest was very hot especially with small children Aquarium was great , but still in renovation mode. Prices are high at gardens, suggest discount places instead. There are places to eat, but recommend bringing your own or cooler.

Went a long time ago. Out of the things to do in Galveston, this isn't something I remembered. I remember the rainforest the most. I do remember it being quite pricey, so this is something to be aware of if you have children or a...More
