Screens daily

Historic events such as the Galveston Hurricane of 1900 come to life with sets, special lighting, and amazing sound effects.

Feel the seats shake as a gusher explodes from an East Texas oil derrick. Experience the takeoff of Saturn V as if you were seated at Mission Control at the Lyndon B. Johnson Space Center in Houston. Sound and sensory effects help make The Star of Destiny a truly memorable experience for all ages.

The Texas Spirit Theater offers a multisensory experience and contains sequences of flashing lights that may affect customers who are susceptible to photosensitive epilepsy or other photo sensitivities.

Out of an abundance of caution, some effects that interact with the audience have been made inactive, but there are still plenty of multisensory effects to enjoy.  The Texas Spirit Theater is thoroughly cleaned between each screening. Read our FAQs to learn more.
