The World's Largest McDonald's Closes To Make Way For An Even Bigger One

The world's biggest McDonald's, located in Orlando  has closed its doors as of 11 p.m. on Wednesday, December 30 — but don't worry, an even bigger one is on the way.

The current structure, known to some as "the Fry Box" for its resemblance of a giant box of McDonald's French fries, first opened in 1976 and includes bowling alleys, slides, and video games inside. Since its inception, the restaurant has been a popular destination on International Drive, the main tourism strip.

According to Oerther Foods, Inc., which owns and operates the gargantuan McDonald's, construction of the "new, state-of-the-art replacement restaurant nears completion." The new McDonald's will open in February next door to the existing restaurant and occupy 19,000 square feet. Oerther Foods has not revealed what new attractions will be built inside the next world's biggest McDonald's, but you can bet they'll be designed to rake in money.
