DANNY ROWE, ACTIVE GRAND PRIX GRAND CHAMPION, has a new favourite child: “Roller coasters.”
The 31-year-old, who has starred in more than 300 films, is one of the most recognisable faces in Australian entertainment.
But he has had his fair share of challenges and challenges in finding a happy balance between his work and family life.
And his latest venture into the world of roller coaster racing is a roller coasting experience he calls the Egg Roll King, where kids can roll their own egg roll.
Mr Rollo, who was born in Adelaide, is also an avid roller hockey skater.
But the two passions are not confined to the track.
He and his partner, who is also the head of the ACT’s Roller Coaster Association, have teamed up to open an Egg Roll Kings facility in Melbourne’s CBD, where they plan to roll their eggs into a giant egg roll for kids to roll and eat.
“I was looking for a way to raise funds to make a little space for the kids to go to for the Egg roll King,” he said.
“We wanted to raise money for the egg roll king but also the egg rolls.”
Mr Rollow says he and his wife, a mother of two, have been “honestly devastated” by the death of their daughter and son-in-law in September.
“The death of our daughter and the death in the family is a huge blow for me and my family,” he told ABC News.
“My daughter had a stroke and had to be put on life support for a couple of months.
I’m still working with the family on their recovery and trying to work through the grief of losing my daughter and her son- in-law.”
He is now working with an egg roll company in Melbourne to develop a roller coaster park.
Mr Rolloway says he was inspired to take on the challenge after meeting his friend, JAY, in 2017.
“He’s been my friend for years, we’ve been in the same car and we’ve just been friends since I was a kid,” he recalled.
He said, you know, ‘I’ll try and build my own coasters’.””
He said he wanted to try and make it his own.
He said, you know, ‘I’ll try and build my own coasters’.”
So I said, well if you’re not going to do it yourself, you can always help out and maybe I can help you out.
“The Egg RollKing is located in the CBD, at the corner of Carlton Street and Port Arthur Road.
Mr Rollingo says he plans to bring the egg-rolling experience to the Sunshine Coast next year, when the Sunshine Line will be built, and he is also looking to bring his children along for the ride.
He said his goal was to “create a place for kids who like roller coopers and roller skating to enjoy”.
He said children could ride the Egg Rolls for free.
A spokesman for the ACT Roller Coaster Associations said the Egg-Roll Kings would be available in early 2018, although it was not yet clear if the Egg Rolling Kings would offer a ride to children who do not want to buy a ticket.
The Egg-roll Kings will also have a large screen on which parents can watch the kids play the egg rolling games.”
The egg roll business was started in 2011 by Mr Rollow and his business partner, KIM MCLEAN, and the Egg rolling company now has more than 70 staff. “
It takes the kids back to childhood and the joy of roller skating.”

It is not the first time Mr Rolloway has made the jump into roller coaring.
In 2010, he became the first Australian to take part in the Ironman Australia triathlon at Lake Louise, a race held in New Zealand, and also ran an Ironman World Championship in New York in 2013.
He has also starred in the films Rollin’ Derby, Rollin’, Rollin and the forthcoming Australian Adventure and Rollin in the Park.
