We were a little unsure of what to expect, but this turned out to be a full day of family fun. Yes, the tickets were a little more than we expected, but where else can you visit an aquarium, zoo, 3D theater, 4D theater and...More

While the day pass was pricey ($56/person), we spent the better part of a day going through the aquarium and rain forest buildings on a rainy day. The docents were knowledgeable and engaging, answering questions and pointing out things spontaneously to my 10 year old...More

We went to the aquarium which was OK, and the Rain Forest which was fun because of the free roaming monkeys. I was disappointed with the size of the aquarium for the cost.

Went with the family today. Hadn't been in a couple years and the place sure looks bad compared to the last time we were there. Lots of dirty walls that need repainted and sidewalks covered with gum. All in all it was a little disappointing.

My family and I visited Moody Gardens while on vacation . We went into the gift shop called Natures Wonders. A young lady named Christina was very helpful and friendly. I really felt welcome. I will definitely come back.

While me and my family did not take in all of the exhibits at Moody Gardens, we did however go through the rainforest exhibit. It was alot of fun and plenty to see. It is a recommended exhibit if you have time.

I don't know. I purchased at the window day of. I'm sure they can trace back your cc#. Did you print out your receipt at least? Maybe bring that along.

The way it was explained to me was that the tickets are only good for the day purchased. But, under your circumstance I would hope that they would make an exception. Sorry for the loss of your father.
