As Usatoday.com reports, Dinner in the Sky, is making its U.S. debut Monday in Orlando at the annual International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions convention. It's dinner at a table suspended 165 feet in the air with chairs that swivel 180 degrees.
About 25,000 attendees are expected at the one-stop-shopping event, where the amusement industry rolls out new thrill rides and related products.
The high-flying venue was first introduced in Europe last year and consists of a platform suspended from a crane. Guests are harnessed into 22 seats, with space in the center for a chef and two helpers.
Some envision numerous possibilities locations for the dangling restaurant, including air space over the Grand Canyon, Niagara Falls and golf courses.
The restaurant (dinnerinthesky.com) belongs firmly in the special-occasion category, however. The cost for eight hours is about $11,444 — not including catering.
