If you’re looking for excitement when it comes to dining out, then look no further. Germany’s RollercoasterRestaurant has exactly the right thing for you.
Picture layers of steel tracks that twist, twirl and bend above your head. RollercoasterRestaurant has engineered a way to deliver your food to you safely on these tracks (even through loops!).
If you’re looking for a unique dining experience like no other, be sure to book a table at one of the worlds few rollercoaster restaurants.
How does it work?
The concept is honestly quite simple. Large tables are spread around the restaurant where diners can order their food remotely using a tablet. Each kitchen has its own separate track leading up and down from the kitchen, where the food is securely strapped into a metal tin and ready to go.
The food is initially sent from the kitchen to a small conveyor system or lift designed to get the food up into the air. After that, gravity handles the rest. The food will fly down the tracks to the respective table, making for a great show with your meal!
The UK’s first rollercoaster restaurant
This dining experience can be found all over the world from places such as Germany, Abu Dhabi and even Vienna, Austria. Most recently, RollercoasterRestaurants has opened up a venue in Russia but plans to bring even more experience opportunities to countries such as China, South Korea, France and Mexico in the next couple of years. But for UK citizens, you don’t need to look any further than our very own Alton Towers Rollercoaster Restaurant.
Located in the theme park resort’s ‘Forbidden Valley’ area, the experience is open for both lunch and dinner to hotel and theme park guests that have reservations. The menu even includes vegetarian, vegan and even gluten-free meals, ensuring that there’s something for everyone involved.
Alton Towers Rollercoaster Restaurant offers a full 360° dining experience, where each and every dish will have to complete its race along 400 meters of ‘spiralling steel track’ before reaching its delicious end. The award-winning dining experience also features two ‘gravity-defying loop-the-loops’ and tornado spirals that are sure to make any meal that much more exciting.
With such quality meals and an action-packed show, what better way to enjoy your meal than in an exciting roller coaster restaurant.
