The Polar Express 4D
Take a ride on the Polar Express 4D and you'll not only see and hear the action, you'll feel and smell it too. The 12-minute film (an abbreviated version of the feature by the same name) has dozens of special effects, including falling snow, the smell of hot chocolate, cool breezes and even rumbling seats. Hi-def digital 3D projection, SFX lighting and a DTS surround-sound system bring to life the story of a little boy who takes a train trip to the North Pole to learn the meaning of Christmas. Continuous screenings noon to 9 p.m. daily. Through January 2. Moody Gardens, One Hope Boulevard, Galveston. For information, call 800-582-4673 or visit www.moodygardens.com. $9.95.
