World's largest roller coaster restaurant opens in Abu Dhabi

The world’s biggest roller coaster restaurant has opened in Abu Dhabi’s newest shopping centre, using unique technology to deliver diners’ meals in sealed pots via looping and spiralling rollercoaster tracks. Rogo’s will offer a menu of international fast food from gourmet burgers to asparagus and sweet pea risotto.

Located at Abu Dhabi’s largest shopping centre, Yas Mall, the new restaurant joins the medley of tourist attractions and entertainment already on offer on Yas Island, which includes the Ferrari World theme park and the Yas Marina Formula 1 Grand Prix circuit.

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

The restaurant is set out over two floors which can accommodate around 360 diners and each table is served by its own mini rollercoaster track. The highlight of the venue is the 12-metre-high tornado-shaped rollercoaster spiral.

Al-Absi and Jessica add;

"Diners 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,"

The hi-tech restaurant also has a state-of-the-art ordering system allowing diners to order from hand-held computer tablets. British executive chef Paul Owens heads up the 34-person culinary team and has developed the menu to reflect dishes and flavours from across the globe using the freshest, highest quality ingredients and innovative combinations.

The menu offers international comfort food with fine dining flourishes such as aspaprgaus and sweet pea risotto topped with crispy poached egg and hollandaise sauce. The brand’s signature DIY Rogo’s Tornado burger comes with a choice of 13 different toppings and combinations. Desserts include upside-down New York-style warm-baked cheesecake or sticky date pudding with salted caramel ice cream.

The restaurant can be found in Yas Mall’s Town Square in the centre of the mall. It is Group JWA’s flagship rollercoaster restaurant, and the company has plans to expand the brand to other countries in the region.
