While the exact rainstorm can differ from restaurant to restaurant—there are currently 27 Rainforest Cafes worldwide—the experience is designed to remain the same: casual mall dining in the middle of the rainforest .
Rainforest Cafe took down its sign last weekend, and it will move out by the end of August, Conlon said. “It’s tough enough to be a restaurant in Chicago with the pandemic, but it’s even harder with all the looting,” Conlon said. “They were already on the way out , and I think recent events compounded it.”

The café is one of several restaurants closing in order to make way for a 700-room hotel in Downtown Disney set on 17 acres. ESPN Zone closed June 2, AMC Theatres 12 is scheduled to be demolished in July. The Earl of Sandwich has announced its last day will be Tuesday, June 26.
Perhaps the pricing is so high due to the exclusivity of the dish. As the restaurant’s website boasts, “Where else can you eat a volcano?” (via Rainforest Cafe ).
According to a company official, the café is closing because the restaurant’s lease will expire on Jan. “Due to a natural lease expiration, Rainforest Café , located in Schaumburg at Woodfield Mall, will cease operations on Jan. 1,” Landry’s Restaurants VP of Operations Don Hart said in a statement.
Speaking of storms, every 20 minutes a simulated thunderstorm rips through the place. Lightning flashes, thunder cracks, and the rain picks up, pouring into waterfalls and pools and alarming the animatronic wildlife—macaws, jaguars, gorillas and more. And, on occasion, terrifying younger diners.
