Abu Dhabi opens roller-coaster-themed restaurant

Abu Dhabi’s recently opened Yas Mall has become the venue for the UAE’s first rollercoaster-themed restaurant.

The Roller Coaster Restaurant LLC, part of Group JWA, has launched ROGO’s, a rollercoaster-inspired casual dining venue.

The focus of the 14,000-square foot venue is a network of 30 individual rollercoaster tracks that loop, spiral and spin in and around diners’ tables.

“The UAE is globally acknowledged as a groundbreaking destination for world firsts and with the world’s fastest rollercoaster, the Formula Rossa, part of the neighbouring Ferrari World experience, ROGO’s offers a spectacular culinary experience for fun-loving diners looking for a new and exciting dining adventure,” said Jessica Wadih Al-Absi, chairman & CEO of Group JWA.

“Each table has its own individually designed roller-coaster track and a unique silent delivery system that thrills diners as they get to watch their food make a gravity-defying 360-degree journey to their table. Our state-of-the-art technology makes dining fun as it transports both cold and hot food and drinks along the multi-spiral, double loop and tornado tracks,” she added.

The 378-seat restaurant also has a fully integrated ordering system which will allow diners to order their meals on individual handheld tablets.

The creators of the concept, Nuremberg-based HeineMack GmbH, already have four outlets in Germany, as well as versions in Kuwait and Sochi in Russia.
