    Anyone else imagine "free fall" ride with that last sentence? :lol:


    Anyway, would you try this out? There are other examples of "extreme dining" in that article, including riding a giant ferris wheel (similar to London Eye) or dining as blind (in the dark) or at a snow restaurant (everything in the resto structure is made of ice). I think they'll be cool to try. :)

    I think all the ones you mentioned would be pretty cool to try. I'm not a huge fan of heights unless i'm strapped in, so the dining in the sky one would be alright. Just imagine the views!

    I feel funny just looking at that picture. I would not do that in a million years. I like my lunch without a side of vomit.

    The one for the blind is a restaurant in Paris. They lead you in your seat into a dark room with blind guides to help you with the dining experience. It seems that they want to have a sense test (taste being stronger when you can't see?) --- i wonder if it's similar to having sex in complete darkness. :hah:

    I don't think I'd enjoy this at all, it doesn't appeal to me.

    AeonFlux I am the edge!

    I think they all sound like they could be fun, but I wouldn't be willing to pay them thousands of dollars just to have an interesting dining experience.

    LOL :lol:
    Yeah I could definitely be persuaded to try it, I'm not too bothered by heights usually. I think I'd prefer the other ones you listed though, they sound more like something I'd want to do. But still, yeah, I wouldn't mind trying this.
