This place is super cute inside. The prices are high for the food for portions you get. They also do not have anything healthy to order.

This restaurant comes alive every 15 minutes with animal sounds, lighting and thunder. Two caveats here. Some children are afraid of the noise and those visiting have trouble talking over the show. The show last around 2 minutes though so not too bad. The food...More
