Putting a twist on 'fast food' at the Rollercoaster Restaurant

Think you're tired of fast food in theme park restaurants? England's Alton Towers is opening a new "fast food" restaurant that might change your mind.
The park's new Rollercoaster Restaurant will send food from the kitchen to your table not on a waiter's tray but on more than 400 meters of spiraling, looping track. That's right — your meal will ride a roller coaster on its way to your table. Take a look:
The menu will feature burgers, steaks, chicken, risotto, and salads. Each dish has been tested on the track to ensure that it will arrive in good condition at each of the 13 available tables, according to the park. In addition to the two loops on the track, meals will reach speeds "faster than Mo Farah when he won Gold at the Olympics," the park said in a press release.
Rollercoaster Restaurant opens May 13 in the old AIR shop location in Forbidden Valley. In addition to being open for lunch during park hours, Rollercoaster Restaurant also will be open for dinner after the park closes, when anyone will be able to dine without a theme park ticket.
