Are you a Rainforest CafĂ© fan? Well, you’ll want to check out this Rainforest Cafe that has a RIDE in it! 

Rainforest Cafe at Disney World

With two locations at Walt Disney World Resort, including Disney Springs and Disney’s Animal Kingdom, chances are if you’re a regular visitor to Disney, you’ve dined at least once in the rainforest.

We have eaten at both locations multiple times. Our kids think it’s a blast and can’t get enough of the regular rain showers that get the animatronic animals moving and talking. With so much to see and an excellent variety of food, it’s a great place to take the family!

But, did you know one Rainforest Café in Texas has a RIDE that goes along with the restaurant?

Rainforest River Adventure Ride

Galveston, Texas, has the only Rainforest Cafe location with a ride! Their website goes on to note, “Expeditioners will be taken on a journey through the Rainforest along the water. Animals come alive as you move through the river. Twists and turns await for you at every corner!”

The ride is open daily, with each ticket costing $7.49, with children 2 and under free. Tickets are purchased at the restaurant. 

Let’s Take a Ride

Ready to take a ride? Here’s a 360-degree ride shared via YouTuber JohnYChen, who says:

“The Rain Forest River Adventure Ride is a dark ride at the Rain Forest CafĂ© in Galveston. Texas. The ride consists of boats going through an animatronic filled tropical jungle. The ride is included if you get the three park wrist band that includes the Downtown Aquarium, Kemah Boardwalk, and the Galveston Pleasure Pier.”

Check out the ride video below:

How fun would it be to enjoy a meal and rainforest ride at one of Walt Disney World’s Rainforest Cafes?!

We don’t foresee this attraction coming to Disney, but you never know! In the meantime, if you’re ever in the Galveston, Texas, area, be sure to drop by Rainforest CafĂ© and enjoy the ride.
