Moody Gardens is not as intense as what you might imagine a waterpark to be like. Here you can relax on a white sand beach or get pampered at the spa. There are, of course, other attractions that are more exciting for kids and are sure to keep them entertained like tower slides and rope courses, but this is a place that the less adventurous will enjoy.

Big Rivers Waterpark

Great Wolf is an indoor water park that is perfect for those days when it just isn’t quite nice enough to play in the water outside. They keep their water nice and warm at 84 degrees, and even though it is indoors, it is big enough to keep you and your family busy all day!
