Hi everyone! Today I am very happy to be bringing you my rendition of the famous Rainforest Cafe! I love this restaurant in real life and have wanted to try and build a version for my game. I have gone through to accentuate every detail to make it the best it could be and incorporate as many of the key elements of the real restaurants as possible.

The exterior of the restaurant is designed as an ancient jungle temple surrounded by thick tropical vegetation. Inside is a lush tropical setting complete with aquariums, animals, plants of every variety, and more! There is even the starry night sky in the main dining room that is featured in the real locations. I heavily relied on colored lighting to give the place a more authentic feel along with some fog emitters to help bring things like the aquarium areas to life. There is the bar with the multi styled bar stools and of course the gift shop complete with all sorts of jungle inspired merchandise! As an added bonus, I included an outdoor seating space so your Sims can enjoy their food outside if they so desire!

One thing you may notice is that the kitchen space is empty. I intentionally left it this way for you to design yourself. I would highly recommend downloading the "Business as Usual" bistro from the Sims 3 Store and get the oven and custom kitchen equipment that you can then use to turn this place in to an actual functioning restaurant your Sims can operate! If not, don't worry. I have the lot set as a dive bar meaning Sims can order both food and drinks from the bar and then sit where they please.

I really hope you all enjoy my rendition of this iconic jungle themed eatery! It is 100% CC and Store content free and ready to place in your worlds! Happy Simming!

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file.
2. Select the .sims3pack file you got from extracting.
3. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
5. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Select the house icon, find the lot in the list, and tick the box next to it. Then press the Install button below the list.
6. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the lot to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
7. Run the game, and find your lot in Edit Town, in the premade lots bin.

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

I miss it cause they had good coconut shrimp. ; _ ; But honestly so many kids go to it and they kind of ruin the fun out of it. >_>

I had a location near me before but sadly it closed. Luckily I’m still able to visit other locations when I travel

I remember going there with my cousin when I was young. This is a very unique idea!
