Restaurant description

A truly unique dining experience at Alton Towers Resort, The Rollercoaster Restaurant is set underneath a vast rollercoaster track that carries meals to the table via gravity-defying loop-the-loops and spiral drops. Entry to the theme park is not required in the evening to dine in the restaurant.

A great selection of hearty grill recipes and international twists can be found on The Rollercoaster Restaurant menu. To start, there are premium flavours such as lobster tail cocktail, and smoked paprika-dusted calamari, giving way to gourmet burgers served in brioche buns with seasoned fries. There are slow-cooked pork ribs, 10oz ribeye steaks, as well as exotic additions, such as the Bombay butter chicken curry. There are also special kids' menus, offering smaller portions of the adult mains, along with their own dedicated recipes.

For dessert, The Rollercoaster Restaurant Alton Towers Resort offers up sharing options like the indulgent chocolate fondue, or individual treats like potted lemon curd cheesecake.

The Rollercoaster Restaurant is a unique blend of dining and theatrics, with Stoke-on-Trent sitting a 30-minute drive away.

    1st timers, had to ask for plates and cutlery, 1 meal didn't come out until the other 4 had nearly finished. My meal did t stay warm very long. There for the novelty factor,

    The food was nice but a little overpriced, the kids loved watching the food and drink coming out along the tracks. Worth going for the experience but we wouldn’t necessarily go back.

    First time we went it the meal was amazing, salmon dish. This time (3rd visit) the kitchen were really slow. One meal came but drinks still didn't arrive for half the table and they were wrong. Lovely waitress, Voi was great. And meal was ok. Still fun experience. Not sure we will return.

    It was nice but felt a little rushed and some items were cold, we were also missing a drink which got brought out after we had finished our meals.

    Very poor. Main courses for two adults never arrived despite being ordered three times. Waitress was not interested and despite asking to speak to a manager, which she said she would do, it never happened and we had to sort on way out. Will never set foot in restaurant again unfortunately.

    :Loved the roller coaster theme, my kids were mesmerised throughout. Really great atmosphere too. Food was excellent, service good but unfortunately the waitress couldn't be heard over the music - she didn't speak very loud! We would have loved deserts but unfortunately there wasn't any children's ice cream available. Had the table next to us been filled up they would have been sat on our laps - not very much room between tables.

    A little overpriced for a burger bar however a very unique experience that we all enjoyed. Definately worth a visit.

    Unfortunately awful experience. Waiter put table number wrong in the iPad so our drinks etc went somewhere else we got some1 else's. Waited 30mins just to get our drinks and we have a 2yr old and 9yr old. Ordered melon balls for my child which never came. When the food finally came it was cold. But we ate some of it as we had waited so long and had a long drive home. Had a lovely stay at the alton towers hotel and there restaurant and staff much better Wont be recommending or visiting again.
