    Theorists, by now most of us have seen the videos by @Eddy Burback and @Ted Nivison . They inspired me to take my own trip to a Rainforest Café, so while I was out of the country I went to the one in Paris! No, not for the food or the ambiance. For. The. LORE! That's right. I needed to find out if this theme restaurant had any hidden lore and, Theorist, I think it may just be the next FNAF. Yes, you read that right. Let's go!

    When my cousin survived cancer, our entire family went to Disney to celebrate. One night we ate at the rainforest cafe. My family was the only ones who had already eaten there, so I watched them experience all the lovely chaos for the first time. Special memories I’ll never forget

      @Anoyint it was the most magical Disney experience I’ve ever had. When we took a family photo on Main Street, the morning show was just finished up, and fireworks launched into the air. Our photos had litteral fireworks framing the castle behind us.

    When the rainforest cafe here in kansas city closed i felt a part of me go with it. I still have a plate from them i got when i was 5. Its my favorite piece of dishware. I miss it and think of it often. It was unapologetically odd and i was always facinated by the thunderstorms and animatronics. I hated chuckie cheeses but thr rainforest cafe was an escape. One day i will drive myself to a rainforest cafe.

    "Rainforest cafe hasn't so much as spawned a single nightmare"
    I beg to differ: it was through watching this video that I realized just how much this place still appears in my dreams after going to the one that used to be in San Francisco just a couple of times as a small child. Usually in a bad context too.

      Dreams are fascinating. I have been having very different dreams for the last few days, but they all have the same plot and characters. Me, a girl I know, and some activity we would have likely both happened to be in.
      So far, it has had such settings as:
      VEX Robotics Competition (we are both involved in amateur recreational engineering for children)
      Taking a college aptitude test, like SAT or ACT
      Shopping at Wallmart

    The Rainforest Cafe will always be one of my favourite restaurants. It beautifully and LOUDLY announces to you how much it doesn't give a crap what your standards for a normal restaurant are, and commits to the fun idea they had all the way through.

    It’s so amazing that when I came to this video I figured it was going to be poking jokes and puns at the scenery and the oddly placed characters then I left with an amazing, hopeful message in my heart that it’s okay to be different and to love yourself and accept yourself for the exotic and colorful traits you have.
    Thank you MatPat.

    Actually, there’s more lore to this then it seems. One of the characters there Tracy the magical talking tree has an entire creepy pasta to it. Not to mention how creepy this entire place can be, it’s worth mentioning that it makes sense for a murder to take place there. The story is told like this, a girl and her friend are in the mall late at night with her little brother when her friend decides to go into the building after hours even though it’s closed. Her friend is suspicious of doing so but decides to go anyways. They enter the creepy restaurant and start to hear whispering from the talking “magical” tree Tracy. Her friend goes up to it and is shocked by what she hears. Afterwards her friend immediately decides she wants to be taken home and is found dead the next day. Traumatized, her friend refuses to ever go to that rainforest cafe but a few years later understands what the tree said. It was a warning to those who listen about when they will die. Apparently her friend knew about dying that next day. Credits to Jessii Vee

    This episode reminded me of when I used to go here as a kid, and yesterday I finally went back. It was so much fun and honestly shocking how much of it I remembered. Better yet, I came back with one of the frog cups :> So thanks for bringing this restaurant back on my radar, MatPat.

    We had a Rainforest Cafe in one of the malls within a few hours where I grew up so we would pass it on occasion. Didn't eat there more than once or twice that I can remember but I always really wanted to go because animals are, and have always been, my thing. Even just seeing this video got me super nostalgic for it but I don't think there's one nearby where I live

    I slightly knew about RainForest Cafe when I was very little, seeing how my older cousins had two cups from them. As a kid born in 2004, I sadly never got to go, but I always imagined it being in a huge jungle where you can sit on huge tree and meet cool new animals pals and just be yourself. At least, that's what it taught me. AND THANK GOD, WE GOT A BRIGHTER SIDE OF THE SPECTRUM!!!! WOO!!

    Update: I checked and its still there! Another Rainforest Café to check off the list. Now I know what to do next time I visit :D (though its not listed in the official website of the restaurant, among the other international locations)
    Some weird thing I've noticed is that both me and another member of my family recall that the name of the restaurant contained a "Jungle" in it, thought that's not the case.

    I mean, being around plants is also just really good for mental health, so an entire forest-themed restaurant? Yeah, I can definitely see that having a positive effect. The unabashed chaos and weirdness in a society of written and unwritten rules and boxes, as well as the hit of nostalgia and reality actually living up to it, adds to that. All of those things combined? Man, I can only imagine how nice that must be

    If you told me Rainforest Cafe is the result of someone experiencing some sort of insane acid trip, told their friends about it, and they told him "You should replicate that acid trip and make it an actual concept"....I'd believe you. We wish we had one of the international locations of the chain. It'd be a nice fit at my palace for Rodman and I.

    I never realized the Rainforest Cafe that's like, a 15 minute drive for me is the only one in my state.
    Also, protip, Saturdays are the busiest day, so if you want the best service, go on a weekday. Found that out from applying for a job there. Also, for those of you at Animal Kingdom at Disney World Orlando, the Yak and Yeti resturant is actually a sister location to Rainforest Cafe. (Cue "The More You Know" graphic"

    I've only been to rainforest cafe once to my knowledge. At that time I was going through a lot dealing with a really bad depression episode, and some other mental issues, among other things. So my mom and my dad who don't really get along most of the time, got together and took me down to the big mall in Nashville. And we ate a rainforest while there. All in all for me it was an escape from my horrid day to day reality I was dealing with, and I really enjoyed my self the sights and sounds that I remember even now we're somewhat calming and brought me a sense of peace I hadn't really felt in a long while at that point. I was 13 at the time, and now it's one of my good memories especially from that time cause there really aren't that many. I'm doing better now, but I think I'd like to go back at least one more time, to feel it at a better time.

    I watched Eddy’s video because I grew up going to Rainforest Cafe in Orlando because it was our "family outing" once a year in the 90s, since you didn’t need to buy park passes. It was a deep nostalgia trip for me because it was better in its "high day". All the lights went out, and it wasn’t every 20 min, some people never even saw the thunder storm because they tried to do it between diners as a "show theme" so it was every hour or so in 2002-2004 when I went with us as a table of 8 never even seeing a thunderstorm though we waited 45 minutes for a table and hearing the thunderstorm and whatnot outside, never actually seeing it. The third time I was there the thunderstorm went off and they included the bathroom, so the lights went off and being 13 I was so mad I was in the bathroom missing the event. Rainforest cafe is the magic of my childhood, along with the smoking Lego dragon and the 16+ rating of the "rockin roller coaster" of MGM.

    I once stopped at a rain forest Cafe with my auntie when our family went to a zoo. My auntie was like, 13 so she thought it'd be cool to be seen sitting around in it but the Cafe was crowded. I remember I either got a turkey club or a tuna salad sandwich, she got to take pictures with the talking tree animatronic, and I got to see the penguins after. It was a good day.

    There was this great restaurant on Broadway that I loved, Jekyll & Hyde's, that was a terrifying, kitschy, dark academia place. There were freak-show specimens in jars in the waiting room, and bizarre comedic animatronics inside, like a sphynx head that told one-liner pun jokes, and a frankenstien monster that would come to life with a lightning storm every 15 or 30 minutes. If you found the bathroom, you'd be washing your hands normally, only to suddenly see a mannequin staring at you from the other side of the apparently two-way mirror. It was a fantastic experience. And I'm so sad that the location shut down.

    It's been a long time since we've been to Rainforest Cafe. We would go to Galveston for summer vacations and eat there. The food was great! It was pricey, but the portions were huge. We always had to get to go plates. We would always go on the raft ride too. I burn so easily, and you don't see many raft rides inside, so that was really cool to go on.

    I agree with you on the price, Matt, but oddly enough that's my only complaint about the restaurant. The food is good, I love the atmosphere, and my aunt would take me there a lot when she was babysitting me, so there's a big nostalgia smack whenever I walk by it in the mall. Now if we could just get an underwater theme restaurant with good food I'd be happy as a clam.
