The locations of Roblox servers are random. Roblox servers are chosen based on your connection. For instance, if the server is started by a user who comes from the United State, so the server is going to be based in a location near them. Same goes for if the server is started by an EU user, this is for reducing latency as much as possible.
There is something to note, Roblox use their IP ranges on some different hosting companies that support the use of custom IP ranges. So, it means that the server can be based in the EU, but, is hosting a US IP address. We think that it is best not to rely on the IP information for determining server location due to this. Since you are using Amazon services, so you should not need to worry about latency all too much.
