The Grandma Team loves this place. We had jambalaya. We loved it. Great service. No wait time. And shopped in the gift shop when we were done.

We (family of 6) were hoping to have dinner at Rainforest (Gurnee Mills) on 3/30/16; however, I read in the recent Trip Advisor reviews that the fish in the tanks were gone. Are the fish back or still gone? Thanks.
