For those that are scared of heights, this restaurant experience might not be such a great idea. For others that want to experience the bliss of sky views while being suspended in air and enjoying a gourmet meal, Dinner in the Sky could be an amazing, adventurous dining experience. Now, the experience is opening a permanent Las Vegas outpost.

"Dinner in the Sky is hosted at a table suspended at a height of 50 metres by a team of professionals. Benji Fun, our partner in this event, is the worldwide leader for this type of activity," said Dinner in the Sky's website.

The experience accommodates 22 people and is available for a session of eight hours. Their website states that it can be held anywhere from a race track, golf course, vineyard or castle "as long as there is a surface of approximately 500 m² that can be secured. Of course, authorisation by the owner is required."

The experience was developed by Events in the Sky and is available in more than 40 countries.  Dinner in the Sky has recently been available in the iconic Las Vegas Strip on a permanent basis.

"Construction has already begun on the T-shaped tower, west of the Interstate 15 near CityCenter, which will hold two tables each capable of accommodating 22 people plus waiters and a chef," reported The Las Vegas Sun.

Janeen Hinden, the project's owner said to The Las Vegas Sun, "I think it's going to do phenomenal in Las Vegas. We are the capital for entertainment and culinary arts, and this just takes those over the top. I hope this will be an iconic attraction in the city."

Hinden said that the Las Vegas version is the first in the world to be open to the public in the U.S. Groups of up to 20 can now make reservations.

For the experience, diners are strapped into a harness for safety to their chairs and spend about one hour elevated where they are served a three-course meal and desert. The Las Vegas Sun reported that much of the meal will be prepared in advance and then finished up in a convection oven on a platform.

The cost per person is $290. "As part of the $4 million project, an office on the site will be converted into a tapas restaurant and bar, which will give heights-fearing diners a place to eat while keeping their feet on the ground, she said to The Las Vegas Sun."We realized after that test market that a lot of people want to come and watch, but they don't necessarily want to be on the table."
