New Aquarium Adventure Play Structure Adds Appeal to Palm Beach


Beginning this May, visitors to Moody Gardens’ popular summertime attraction Palm Beach will be able to enjoy a brand new, interactive, multi-level play structure. The new addition, Aquarium Adventure, will feature a playful underwater theme, raising the fun vertically with climb-on platforms up to eight-feet tall. Gutter Dumps, Tippy Buckets, Powered Water Blasters, Deck Bubblers and even a 25-foot Hydro Storm tower will surprise guests below with a 500-gallon water dump. Two 60-foot looping slides will delight children looking for a thrill, and a new fountain feature will squirt up from the ground in lively patterns. The structure’s many interactive features are powered by Wizard Works’ exclusive SmartWorks computerized Control System.

“We are looking forward to seeing visitors enjoy this new structure at Palm Beach, ” said John Zendt, General Manager at Moody Gardens. “We continually strive to provide exciting updates and expansion projects in an effort to offer new experiences and value to our guests here at Moody Gardens.”

The new play structure replaces Palm Beach’s submarine and octopus feature. It will be larger in size and multiplies the fun with more interactive water toys built into the design. The upper and lower lagoons have been resurfaced with Tuff Coat non-slip covering.

Palm Beach features soft white sand beaches, blue freshwater lagoons and waterfalls surrounded by lush, exotic landscaping. Visitors can relax in Texas-sized spas or enjoy a game of beach volleyball on regulation courts. The Splashpad automated aquatic water feature offers interactive dump buckets, spray arches and fountains for a day of fun at the beach. Palm Beach is open weekends in May and will be open daily May 24 through August 24. Hours of operation are 9am-6pm.
