Loopy dining in Abu Dhabi

This item appears on page 66 of the February 2015 issue.

Located in Abu Dhabi’s Yas Mall, ROGO’s is the world’s largest roller coaster-inspired restaurant.

Diners at the 2-story, 360-seat restaurant place food orders using handheld digital tablets while seated at their tables. Food is delivered in a covered pot or jar strapped to a tray that slides, secured but gravity driven, down one of 30 “roller coaster” tracks that loop and twist around the dining room.

The international and fast-food items include dishes like Tornado Burgers and Sticky Date Pudding with Salted Caramel Ice Cream. According to www.zomato.com, the average price for a meal for two at the restaurant is AED250 (near $68).

The Yas Mall is located at Yas West, Town Square, Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates (phone +971 800 9276255, www.yasmall.ae). The RollercoasterRestaurant chain (www.rollercoasterrestaurant.com) also has a restaurant in Kuwait, another in Sochi, Russia, and four in Germany.
