Dinner in the sky

Imagine enjoying your next meal being suspended 50 meters above the ground.

FlyDining is a combination of adventure and fine dining that is currently being practised in over 45 countries in the world.
It involves 24 diners being seated around a table, with a maximum of six staff members serving guests from the centre.
The FlyDining structure is a purpose-built table weighing 4 tons. The structure is then elevated by a 200-ton telescopic crane, which takes around 2-3 minutes to ascend. It follows safety standards approved by German engineers and safety experts.
Diners are strapped into their seats with aircraft-standard safety belts. Their seats can be rotated at 180 degrees as well as reclined horizontally. After reaching its maximum height, the table deck slowly starts a 360 degree rotation for diners to enjoy a complete aerial view whilst enjoying their meal.
The staff, consisting of a waiter, entertainers and chefs, are harnessed in as well. There are also safety personnel on board at all times.
The FlyDining franchise would have been introduced to Swakopmund this year, but due to the Coronavirus-pandemic, it has been put on hold for the moment.
The first question that most potential diners usually have, is what happens if someone has to use the restroom whilst everybody is suspended in the sky? Diners are advised to use the restroom before their FlyDining experience, which usually lasts around 30 minutes to an hour, depending on the chosen package. However, the table can be lowered in just under a minute if there is an emergency restroom situation.
There is a set menu chosen beforehand and the food is not cooked in the air. Customers are not allowed to take bags aboard, but are permitted to take their cell phones.
