Average Rating from TPW Users

This restaurant is located in Islands of Adventure and overlooks the waterfall plummet of the Jurassic Park River Adventure. Guests can sit in air-conditioned comfort, and gaze through the picture windows and watch as other guest emerge from the final 85-foot drop of the Jurassic Park River Adventure. With a décor that is rustic and woodsy with large black hanging chandeliers, amber glass, and dinosaurs all around giving the guest that ominous jungle feeling. There is also an outdoor seating area that receives the cooling mist from the thundering waterfall next door.

Although a quick service, the food is casual and served cafeteria style. However, the food is very good, with careful attention paid to both quality and presentation. The menu consists of unusually well prepared backyard barbecue staples such as chicken, ribs, and wraps. The platters are served with roasted garlic herb potatoes or yellow rice and black beans. The corn on the cob is especially nice. The corn is roasted to perfection, with the peeled-back husks adding a festive touch to the platter. Thunder Falls also dishes up a serviceable soup and two tasty entree-sized salads. The desserts include a signature key lime cheesecake. All in all, this restaurant has some of the best “quick service food” in the park.

It’s important to note this restaurant is not part of the Meal Plan, but well worth the extra dollars you would spend to eat here.
