WATCH: Theme Park Restaurant Takes Your Food For a Ride

Normally you have to worry about losing your lunch on a roller coaster. At Staffordshire’s Alton Towers Resort, it’s the lunch that will be riding the roller coaster.
The park is preparing to open its newest installation, a roller coaster themed restaurant that has a novel way of delivering food to its hungry visitors.
The usual method of a wait staff giving you your burger and fries with a smile is replaced with a network of loops, dips and twirls that will have your meal sliding throughout the restaurant before it arrives at your table.
Essentially, the restaurant plays with your food so you don’t have to.
The Rollercoaster Restaurant opens May 13, but you can enjoy a taste test of the experience with this video.
The Daily Mail had a chance to speak with Head Chef Dan Wilbraham who explained that the location is already receiving a healthy dose of anticipation: “We've been overwhelmed by the buzz that's been building around Rollercoaster Restaurant as we gear up to open next week.”
Wilbraham continued, sharing that the goal is to further infuse some frivolity into the theme park experience: “We've worked hard to ensure the excitement found at the restaurant is a close match to many of its neighboring attractions – and we can't wait to see the reaction from visitors when they experience it for the first time.”
As noted, officials have tested the tracks to make sure your burger order doesn’t come to the table as a single bun joined with the mystery of a missing patty.
We truly do love the creativity. But really, when we are walking throughout the theme park and get hit with a sudden wave of hunger, the only thing we want is food.
Just as long as the meal gets to us in one piece we will be just fine.
