I won't! Fraid of heights! My kids made fun of me when we went to Chimney Rock NC. Took me 20 mins to get up the courage to walk across the bridge!

I think that this idea came around like 10 years ago(with threads about it), and I would do it, just for s+g's.

I just hope to not drop my fork...or knife for the sake of those bellow.

not a fool's chance in He!! I would get on that platform!

I have acrophobia, and can't even stand on top of a three-step ladder!

When I've gone to the top of places like the Eiffel Tower, I can look OUT, but never down.

Besides, just think what would happen if one of the diners leaned over to pick up a fallen napkin????

another nope!!! kinda silly to me. & steep stairs give me panic attacks as it is, let alone being hung from a crane & trying to dine...

Saw the news report on this several years ago and I'm still not a customer. Don't do heights of ANY kind.

Would rather save my money for a leisurely dinner on a boat cruising the Seine or the Danube.
