The shopping mall and Columbian House restaurant

The shopping mall was designed to resemble a turn-of-the-century street, complete with cobblestone floors and old-fashioned streetlights. It surrounded the ride area completely, following the entire perimeter of the building. At strategic points there were windows where you could stop and look out into the ride area. The mall had specialty shops, snack bars and a handful of restaurants.

Your goodtime shopping mall
"Old Chicago is a great indoor shopping mall with an 1890's look...and over 100 specialty shops and restaurants. You'll find cigars being rolled by hand, homemade fudge, fine jewelry, gifts and much, much more. And to charm and entertain you--an organ grinder with a comic monkey, and foot stomping banjo players. And that's just the beginning!"

"Shop in the leisure of our turn-of-the-century village
with a mile of unique shops from the
traditional to the contemporary."

"Something for everyone from
a snack to a gourmet meal."
