Time for something new. Don’t see Galveston Island like you usually do this summer. Visit Moody Gardens Hotel for a whole new, unique island experience. With Moody Gardens, Schlitterbahn, and our own private white sand beach, no hotel in Galveston has such an abundance of adventure. This summer, we’re giving you the chance to experience it all with our Ultimate Getaway Sweepstakes. Enter to win 2 nights in a one-bedroom suite*, along with 4 passes to Moody Gardens, Schlitterbahn Waterpark, the Ropes & Zipline course, and the 3D & 4D Theater. You’ll get a full family vacation on the best side of Galveston Island.
Even if you don’t win the Ultimate Getaway, you’ll still have a chance to save. From June 6th to August 18th, you’ll get 20% off the best available rate on Sunday through Thursday. Access to Palm Beach** is included with your stay. Palm Beach is our very own white sand beach, the only one on Galveston Island. Freshwater lagoons, splash pads, volleyball courts, and the aquatic playground let you party on the beach. Our new lazy river, wave pool, and tower slides add extra fun.
At Moody Gardens Hotel, we present you with access to more attractions than any hotel. We’re steps away from Schlitterbahn, Texas’s most famous waterpark. New attractions this summer include Massiv, the world’s tallest watercoaster. 2.5 football fields long, it’s twice the length of any other waterslide at the park. Regular favorites, like Torrent Beach, Faust Und Furious, and Boogie Bahn are also awaiting.
Staying at Moody Gardens Hotel also allows you to easily visit the best attraction on Galveston Island: Moody Gardens. The five-tier Sky Trail® Ropes Course, the tallest steel ropes course on the Gulf Coast, has 48 challenging obstacles. The unique system allows participants to pick their path at their pace, making it perfect for beginners and families, as well as experts. More family adventure happens at The Discovery Pyramid and Nickelodeon’s Spongebob Subpants Interactive Exhbit. This wild deep-sea voyage lets kids interact with the hapless submarine captain, Patrick Star. Skeletown, another exhibit, is an educational tour through human and animal bones, showing how evolution has adapted to help them move across the world’s different landscapes.
The Rainforest & Aquarium Pyramids are the quintessential attractions at Moody Gardens. These two ten-story glass pyramids dominate the tropical landscape around our hotel. The Rainforest Pyramid hosts flora from rainforests across the Earth, as well as exotic animals. See a monkey scamper across the pathway right in front of you, or let a butterfly land right on your finger. This open rainforest exhibit is amazing for kids and adults. The Aquarium Pyramid hosts all manner of underwater life. Glass tunnels let you pass right through the middle of the tank, with fish floating above and next to you. Moody Gardens lets you get up close and personal to nature, so you can see its mesmerizing beauty firsthand.
Staying at Moody Gardens Hotel gives you access to these wondrous Galveston attractions, as well as plush accommodations. With two excellent onsite restaurants – Cafe in the Park and Shearn’s Seafood and Steaks – you’ll have everything you need. Wake up, grab a coffee at our Moody Brews Cafe, and get ready to see Galveston Island in a whole new way.
