we went to the rain forest and the discovery and if I could give feedback to Moody Gardens directly, I would suggest they include all attractions in one price. It is very expensive to do just one attraction with an addon

Hi Deira, Thanks so much for your feedback! We do offer a Day Pass ticket that includes all attractions on property. It also offers the greatest amount of savings when purchased online. We hope to see you on property again soon!

We've been several times to Moody Gardens. We particularly enjoy the aquarium. The Rain Forest Pyramid is nice too, but hot & humid. We also like the 3-D movies they offer. It's an enjoyable outing for families.

We went to the aquarium on a family vacation to the island. The aquarium is one that I would consider average in size and price. If your looking for something to do with the kiddos I would recommend.

Place is pretty cool for kids but not worth visiting for Adults (If you do not have company of kids). We were group of friends who visited this place and felt like we wasted a day. Nothing seems very amazing.

Fee's could've been a little lower or at least offer tickets for 3 attractions at a cheaper price. The place is not bad otherwise.

We use Moody Gardens as a fun learning experience for the entire family. The kids enjoy the variety of attractions and we appreciate the dedication to conservation. The Moody Foundation has been an amazing partner to Galveston Island.

We were delighted to find out Tuesday is Senior Day and all attractions are $5. We only visited the Rain Forest and really enjoyed it. Saw things we'd never seen before and got some great photos.

Two pyramids were fun. The kids enjoyed the Rainforest and the Aquarium the most. They are very well done. The 3D/4D movies are great! Skeletown and Spongebob SubPants were okay--we could have skipped these. The Paddlewheel boat ride is relaxing and enjoyable. Palm Beach was...More

Hi there, We're glad you had a great trip! We're especially pleased to hear that the adults enjoyed our attractions as much as the kids did. Be sure to visit again once Palm Beach is open daily for the Summer!

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.
