‘Special guest’ from Cars in Wonderland

among Rainforest Cafe Kids’ Night highlights


GURNEE — It’s back-to-school time, and children and their parents are invited to attend a special kids’ night from 5 to 9 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 14, at Rainforest Cafe in Gurnee Mills. Children will eat for just $2.99 with the purchase of an adult entrée. But there’s much more to this event than a great meal deal.


The Volo Auto Museum is among sponsors coordinating a truly memorable family evening. The back-to-school fest and kids’ night will feature a magician, balloon twisting, face painting, games, raffles, temporary tats, crafts and more, said Brian Grams, Volo Auto Museum director.  


“We will be bringing Tow Mater from Disney’s ‘Cars,’” he said. “Mater is a huge fan favorite in our new Cars in Wonderland exhibit.”


Event sponsors also include Build-A-Bear, La Petite Academy of Round Lake, Pump it Up Gurnee, Toys R Us, Rink Side Sports and the girls’ clothing store Justice. Children can meet Build-A-Bear’s Bearemy, Rink Side’s Snowflake, Geoffrey from Toys R Us, and Cha Cha the Tree Frog from Rainforest Cafe.


This Rainforest Cafe location is within the Gurnee Mills mall, 6170 Grand Ave., Gurnee. A wild place to shop and eat, Rainforest Cafe caters to kids, offering a child-friendly menu against an exciting rainforest backdrop.


Grams said Volo Auto Museum is happy to play a role in the kids’ night fun.


“It should be a good time,” he said. “We hope people take a break during their back-to-school shopping, stop in, see Tow Mater and enjoy the activities Rainforest Cafe is hosting.”
