Arctic Fun at Moody Gardens: To The Arctic 3D

Monday, November 12th, 2012

 

Feel like you are a part of the movies in the Moody Gardens 3D Theater. Once you put on your 3D glasses you will experience the realistic three-dimensional images projected onto a gigantic six-story screen.

 

This season experience the documentary, To The Arctic 3D. This heartfelt film takes you through the journey of a mother polar bear and her two seven-month old cubs across their icy home. It’s a story of love, survival, and adventure on the majestic Arctic. The beautiful scenery and captivating images are presented in breathtaking IMAX® 3D, giving viewers an up-close view of the immense glaciers, massive snow-bound peaks, and spectacular waterfalls.

 

While the imagery of To The Artic 3D is incredible, so is the story that accompanies it. Meryl Streep brings beautiful narration to this tale of a land far away with exotic animals you wouldn’t normally be able to observe in their natural habitat.

 

To The Arctic 3D is the perfect film for you and your family to enjoy this season. With the 3D imagery, you will feel as if you are exploring the Arctic yourself, but without the below-freezing temperatures! The family friendly story is pleasing to parents and kids alike.

Arctic Fun at Moody Gardens: Snow Tubing

Friday, November 9th, 2012

 

During this year’s Festival of Lights, Moody Gardens is bringing in a new holiday experience: snow tubing! Texas doesn’t have a lot of snow or sledding opportunities, especially down by the Gulf coast. However, with this addition to the arctic fun at Moody Gardens, even Texan kids can experience this fun winter past time.

 

Glide along the ice and into the holiday season. Snow tubing features a 100-foot ice slide set up in the Moody Gardens grounds. Guests will glide down the giant ice slide on a tube, experiencing an icy thrill unlike any in the region.

 

Snow tubing is fun for almost all ages! The gravity propels the tubes down the slide at exhilarating, yet safe, speeds. Since there aren’t many snow-covered hills in Texas, it is hard to experience this kind of holiday fun without traveling up north. Now you can have snowy hills and Gulf coast beaches, all in the same vacation.

 

From over a million lights to giant ice slides, you can’t find a holiday experience quite like the Festival of Lights. The snow tubing will start on Saturdays during the Festival of Lights (November 10-December 5), and then open daily from December 22-January 5. The hours are noon to 10pm, and admission is only $12.00. You and your family will have plenty of time to get down to Moody Gardens to experience this new seasonal attraction.

 

Snow tubing is just one of the many fun holiday events in Texas going on at Moody Gardens this season. The holiday lights, Christmas events in Texas, and other attractions are constantly entertaining all our visitors. Plan your next family holiday at Moody Gardens, and plan to stay at the Moody Gardens Hotel. Enjoy our special holiday deal, a Festival of Lights Arctic Package for only $17! Also, don’t miss out on the ice skating in the area’s only outdoor skating rink, here at the Moody Gardens!
