Took my grandsons to ride the water ride, and shop. We did not dine there so I can’t comment on food, but they have a very fun atmosphere for kids.

The menu prices are a bit high but food is good. The gift shop is fun. The little safari ride was enjoyed by the kids.

Part adventure, part restaurant and wholly entertaining. The Rainforest Cafe is an exciting thrill for all ages. Wild times await in a decorative jungle with animatronics and a menu of delicious American and tropical fare.
