The scenery is always cool at the Rainforest Cafe. This one has a ride although we did not try it. The food is pretty average. My little one liked the monkeys on the wall and of course the ice cream sundae filled with sparklers.

I love this place. Every time we go it is always fun and exciting. I love the atmosphere. Food is amazing too. Every 30 mins the scenery goes off with a lighting storm and the animals make noises.
