What’s Showing at the Ridefilm Theater!

Wednesday, February 6th, 2013

ridefilmIf you haven’t caught a film at the Ridefilm Theater yet, then you are missing out on one exciting and memorable experience.


The technology of Ridefilm is the ultimate in high-impact and immersive simulation. When you get strapped into the 18-passenger ride, you are surrounded by a seamless 180-degree wraparound screen. The images completely encompass your peripheral vision, so you feel as if you are emerged into the film. The high-quality images and incredible sound system make you feel as though you are living the action!


Right now, the Ridefilm Theater is showing the action packed Crashendo film! The Ridefilm experience begins perched atop a hill, and the viewers appear to be attached to a giant bungee cord, the main character Alfred, and his grand piano! Suddenly, you are rocketed down the hill into the hazardous streets of San Francisco, bouncing around like crazy! As you pinball through a drum factory, you end up crashing onto center stage at the Big Concert Hall! You have arrived just in time for the finale!


Crashendo is a four-minute film released in 1996, and has been exciting viewers every since. The film poster tells riders to, “Strap on your seatbelts for a rockin’ musical adventure!”


Showings start at 1 p.m. and run until 5 p.m. For our guests’ safety, all riders must be at least 42 inches tall.


Individual ticket prices for the Ridefilm Theater are $9.95 for adults and $8.95 for children and seniors. However, the Ridefilm Theater is included in Moody Gardens Value Passes, so be sure to check out ticket prices here.


Include the Ridefilm Theater experience during your next family weekend getaways to Texas. Once you get here, you’ll need a place to rest your head! Check out the Moody Gardens Hotel, one of the best places to stay in Galveston.

Why You Can’t Skip a Visit to Moody Gardens During Your Trip to Galveston

Wednesday, November 21st, 2012

Moody Gardens is the perfect place to visit on your family weekend getaways in Texas. There is so much to do at Moody Gardens that it’s impossible to fit all the fun into one day! Not only are the year-round attractions incredible, but we also have seasonal fun depending on what time of the year you visit. You can’t skip visiting the Moody Gardens Aquarium Pyramid, Rainforest Pyramid, 3D Theater, and more!


Aquarium Pyramid: The Aquarium Pyramid is the largest pyramid at Moody Gardens. It houses four distinct ocean environments. When wandering through this big blue pyramid, you and your family will be entertained and entranced by the five species of penguins, the furry seals, and the famous Squirt, our blind sea lion. The colorful fish and coral reefs are nature’s art at its finest. Watch the sharks, sea turtles, eels, and tropical fish swim all around you as you walk through an underwater tunnel!


Rainforest Pyramid: A major enhancement project has allowed guests to experience the Rainforest Pyramid in a whole new way! You can now walk through an entry that overlooks a new Amazon River otter exhibit. A new treetop path leads you through the canopy level of the pyramid, allowing you to explore and see the monkeys, sloths, and other tree-dwellers closer than ever. Don’t forget to surround yourself with beautiful butterfly species in the butterfly exhibit. There are ten stories of rainforest magic to explore!


Moody Gardens Theaters. Choose from three different theaters, giving you three different experiences. At the MG 3D Theater you can enjoy larger-than-life images projected onto the largest movie screen in Texas. The Ridefilm combines both ride and a film, and the 4D Special FX Theater allows you to see, hear, feel, and smell the action with special effects such as wind, smoke, mist, leg ticklers, and seat buzzers!


The Aquarium Pyramid, Rainforest Pyramid, and the theaters at Moody Gardens are just a few of the reasons you can’t miss out on this famous tourist attraction.
