We do not go here very often, but every time a birthday rolls around, I can be pretty sure I'll get a request for a giant volcano cake at the Rainforest Cafe. Not only is the restaurant wild with animated animals, trees, stars and sound... but the cake comes out with a big sparkler candle and a whole bunch of people singing "Happy Birthday"!
We just celebrated a fifth birthday in our family, so on a school day afternoon, we took our wild bunch to the Rainforest Cafe in the Galleria.
The kids get a coloring sheet and menu... where they can pick one entree, one side and one drink. These meals are pretty reasonable (considering the location) and have a lot of choices for about $⅞ each. The kids ordered the shrimp and dinosaur chicken nuggets.
The food was out very quickly... but we were really in no hurry. We have the activity sheet and every so often, the room would dim, a storm would roll in and the animals would get noisy. (Note that my kids have always loved this... but we've been with several toddlers that hated this!)
