There’s A Burger King With A Roller Coaster 30 Minutes From Buffalo [Video]
At this Burger King near Buffalo, you can get a flame-grilled Whooper and a roller coaster on the side. There is a roller coaster you can ride on top of the roof of the fast food restaurant. The Frank'N Coaster is actually a part of the House of Frankenstein, located at 4967 Clifton Hill, Niagara Falls, ON L2G 3N5, Canada. It costs approximately $15 (Canadian) to ride and it takes two laps around the track, according to a review on Coaster 101. It is pretty much what would be described as a children's roller coaster, but adults can ride it.
The coaster certainly can't compete with the thrills of a coaster you might find at Six Flags Darien Lake, but it is definitely a one-of-a-kind experience. It's actually described as 'The world’s first roof-top rollercoaster', although I'm not sure how true that claim is.
In the video below you can see that the coaster picks up a bit of speed and can be a bit scary (probably mostly because it's on the top of a building, so there is the 'what if' element).

The Frank' N Coaster at the House of Frankenstein in Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada is located on top of a building, but not just any building. We affectionately refer to this ride as "The Burger King Coaster!" It has the worst disengagement from the chain lift I've ever heard. An interesting fact about this roller coaster is it makes only left hand turns. Many of these turns are extremely tight. To make the trains navigate these turns better the couplers between the trains are located on the far left side of the cars, rather than in the center.
