The Roller Coaster Restaurant, an Abu Dhabi-based food and beverage concept development and investment company and part of Group JWA, has opened its first UAE outlet with the launch of Rogo’s, a roller coaster-inspired casual dining venue at Yas Mall in Abu Dhabi.
The focal point of the 14,000-sq-ft restaurant is the network of 30 individual roller coaster tracks that loop, spiral and spin in and around diners to deliver menu of international comfort food directly to each table.
“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 fun-loving diners looking for a new and exciting dining adventure,” said Jessica Wadih Al-Absi, Chairperson and 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.”
The 378-seat restaurant also provides guests with an integrated ordering system in the form of individual handheld tablets. The extensive menu covers all the culinary bases with dishes from the Americas to Europe and Asia.
“Another unique element to the Rogo’s experience is the way our food is served. Each dish is presented in individual pots, making it a real journey of discovery from start to finish, and one that we know will resonate with children and fun-loving adults alike, because who doesn’t enjoy eating straight out of the pot?” said Al-Absi.
British executive chef Paul Owens heads the 34-person culinary team and has developed the menu to reflect dishes and flavours from across the globe.
Al-Absi said they plan to open a series of Rogo’s restaurants across the UAE and the rest of the region.
The global trend today is moving towards the development of eating and dining experiences that are fun and memorable,” she said. “Both our concept and our menu reflect this.”
