Since first opening its doors for business in 1976, the world’s largest McDonald’s has served millions of tourists from around the world. But on Wednesday night at 11 p.m., the iconic McDonald’s in Orlando served its very last McCombo.

The 3-story structure, which was designed to look like a large box of French fries, is being replaced by an even bigger McDonald’s next door. Unlike other McDonald’s around the world, the Orlando restaurant also offered activities totally unrelated to food, like bowling, a video arcade, slides and more.
Construction of the new 19,000-square-foot complex located adjacent to the current structure has been underway for several months, and is scheduled to open in February.
Back in the spring, the Orlando Weekly reported the Sand Lake Road McDonald’s would be closing to make way for an even bigger complex.
The owners aren’t spilling the beans on what attractions will be located in the new restaurant, but we’re betting on waterslides, a movie theater and a few other surprises!
