Rainforest Café is a themed restaurant chain owned by Landry's, Inc. of Houston, Texas. The first location opened on February 3, 1994. Each Rainforest Café restaurant is designed to depict some features of a rainforest, including plant growth, mist, waterfalls, animatronic robots of animals and insects. Some animals include elephants, gorillas, jaguars and the recently added tigers. To enhance this theme, the restaurants are populated by animatronic figures.

Machine one is to the left of the café entrance. This penny machine has a change machine attached to it. The other two machines are in the Gift Shop. Machine two is next to the animated crocodile.
