moody gardens holidays

When it comes to the holiday season, Moody Gardens is without a doubt the area’s can’t miss attraction.

From the unforgettable Festival of Lights to the absolutely incredible Ice Land feature, there are 8 total holiday attractions and activities for your family at Moody Gardens in Galveston, 1 Hope Boulevard. The festivities and fun run now through Jan. 12.

But all of those great attractions aren’t easy to put on and do come with a price. Luckily, Moody Gardens offers what they call “Value Days” — days that are set aside for you and your family to enjoy without breaking the bank. Value Days — and Super Value Days — drop the price per ticket by as much as $12. And when you have a few kids in your family, those savings really add up.

There are only a few Super Value Days left after the new year. Jan. 5 through the time the events close on Jan. 12, are considered Super Value Days, which means adults pay only $35.95 for a ticket and children and seniors pay $30.95 for the “Evening Pass,” which gives you access to pretty much everything at Moody Gardens, including the rainforest, Discovery & Aquarium Pyramids, MG3D & 4D Theaters, and then, of course, Ice Land, Festival of Lights and Skate Rental.

If you’re just in it for Ice Land — an incredible display of craftsmanship that turned 2 million pounds of ice into a beautiful, chilly world — and the Festival of Lights, combo tickets on Super Value Days drop to $22.95 for adults and $17.95 for children and seniors.

Super Value Days are the perfect time to take the whole family to see what Moody Gardens is offering for the holidays, and because the remaining Super Value Days are taking place after the new year, the crowds should be thinner too!
