New Moody Gardens Attraction: Sponge Bob Subpants

The SpongeBob SubPants Adventure will take guests through all the stages of a submarine voyage, complete with live animals and their captain, Patrick Star, who takes them on a wild and silly deep-sea adventure where they help choose their path through the experience. The doors open to a pier-themed pre-show area filled with hands-on activities and tanks full of remarkable sea life. Guests will be transported back in time through L’Oceanauts Submarine Explorations’ vintage “mission briefing” film that explores the beauty of coral reefs and highlights the different animals within the tanks surrounding them. The audience will encounter real sea stars, jellyfish, sea sponges and squids while also learning about the importance of sea-life conservation. Once the briefing is completed, the doors will open for guests to step aboard “Le Plunger” submarine and take their 3D glasses and their seat before departs from the dock for open water. The SUB then descends to a familiar underwater town as SpongeBob SquarePants and your tour guide, Patrick Star, appear through the front window of the SUB. Guests will be part of the experience as they have improvised, real-time interaction with Patrick while he takes them to destinations of their choosing through Bikini Bottom. They can have their fortune read by Patrick in Goo Lagoon, try the jellyfish dating call in Jellyfish Fields or learn a special dance from Sandy Cheeks. Guests will also try to stop Plankton from taking over the SUB in his evil plan to steal the Krabby Patty secret formula. The nautical adventure comes to life as guests are able to smell the sunscreen, pop bubbles above their heads and hit around a beach ball when the 3D images on the screen transform from digital to real time through exciting 4D sensory elements and live narration. The SpongeBob SubPants Adventure is a non-stop whirlwind of surprises that is fun for the whole family only at Moody Gardens.

Sponge Bob Subpants is the newest attraction at Moody Gardens Galveston opening Memorial Day weekend 2015.  It is a completely interactive experience with beautiful small life sea tanks as […]
