The museum has some anamatronic pirates and sounds that completely freaked him out. We were less than halfway through when he wanted to leave. He stuck it out and we tried to finish the scavenger hunt. We finally did... after backtracking to find the things we missed. At the end, each of the kids got to chose a prize from the big treasure chest. All in all, it was a neat attraction but if you have kids that are easily spooked you might want to skip it. Ironically, my two year old daughter was not scared at all.
After walking through the amazing lights we headed back inside to take our tour of the Moody Gardens Rainforest Pyramid. We have visited the rainforest in a prior visit but the tickets were half price because it was late. We decided to give it a try even though we were warned that most of the animals would be sleeping.
I am so glad we did. Touring it at night was a completely different experience. Most of the animals were sleeping . A monkey was fast asleep right in the middle of one of the walk ways. He was attended by his very own security guard (Okay, it was just a staff member!) who was making sure that none of the guests disturbed him. We really enjoyed hunting for the sleeping inhabitants. Another bonus was that it was not crowded so we were able to take our time. Once we made our way through the pyramid we headed back to the hotel for some much needed food and sleep.
