Intrepid Dining

Travelers turn to thrill-seeking dining destinations for adventurous stimulation

Implications - As consumers continue to battle day-to-day complacency, a desire for excitement prompts travelers to turn to travel ventures that go beyond mere relaxation. Providing immersive dinning experiences that seek to emphasize the singularity of that destination, hotels, cafes and restaurants are turning to structurally abstract dining concepts to provoke travelers with an intimidating, yet visually enticing eating experience. Cavernous dining and sky-high eateries speak to a shift in tourism tactics toward experiences that challenge, rather than comfort consumer interaction.
