The Rainforest Café is not for the faint of heart. We went there yesterday for lunch- a weekday, during the summer, and it was packed. There were screaming children and loud music. This is all ok if you are looking for some excitement, but for a quiet hubby lunch- no. The atmosphere is upbeat- there are light and puppet shows every 8-10 minutes and the kids go nuts.
The service is pretty slow on a busy day, or at least it was for us. For 2 burgers with potato chips, we ended up paying $19. These were just about the cheapest items on the menu, and frankly, although they were tasty and big, they were highly overpriced.
The hardest part for me was the environmental conditions. As soon as we got close to the heavily chlorinated fountain I started to have respiratory issues, so I asked to be moved far away from it. The fun didn’t end there though- the sneezing was pretty constant throughout the meal. It occurred to me that the lush garden of tropical plants was covered with dust, and it was killing me.
So would I suggest dining here- probably not. If you have kids and no allergies, it might be a fun trip for a birthday or special occasion, but for the price, I would say Chuck E. Cheese is a lot more fun.
