Here’s another extraordinary invention of humankind: dinner in the sky. When I first come across the idea I thought of it rather amazing and twisted at the same time, just because there’s no comfort of nice warm cosy ambiance there and there’s no convenient toilet (I imagine that must be hard for long hours) however you wouldn’t get awesome panoramic views harnessed in seats that swivel 180 degrees, suspended via a crane anywhere else except in dinnerinthesky.com

Here’s a dining concept that’ll make your head — if not your stomach — spin: It’s dinner at a table suspended 165 feet in the air with chairs that swivel 180 degrees.
Dubbed Dinner in the Sky, the attraction is making its U.S. debut Monday in Orlando at the annual International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions convention. 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 dining venue was 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. With local officials’ blessings, the platform can be transported to just about anywhere the crane can maneuver. One recent spot: in front of the Amiens Cathedral in France, with dinner prepared by a three-star Michelin chef.
The restaurant belongs firmly in the special-occasion category, and the cost for eight hours is about $11,444 not including the catering!!
