The Weightlessness Experience in Las Vegas

We told you last month about a new "high-flying" adventure at Stratosphere Hotel in Las Vegas. This month, Vegas will be home to something just as cool. On May 29, Zero Gravity Corporation's (ZERO-G), G-FORCE ONE will take off from McCarran Airport, offering flyers a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to defy the laws of gravity.

Guests will have the chance to float freely in complete weightlessness during the flight. It's not simulated. ZERO-G replicates the same levels of weightlessness enjoyed on Mars (1/3-gravity), the moon (1/6-gravity), and zero gravity.

ZERO-G is the first and only FAA-approved provider of commercial weightless flights. The Weightless Experience is a luxury travel experience and is the only opportunity on Earth for the general public to experience true "weightlessness" without going to space.

ZERO-G guests will receive:

*    Pre-flight training to maximize their ZERO-G Experience
*    Private transportation to/from McCarran Airport
*    ZERO-G flight suit and patch
*    Personal photography by a world-class photographer
*    HD Video of their weightless experience
*    Post-flight Re-gravitation Celebration
*    Weightless flight award certificate
*    Branded ZERO-G gifts
*    The chance to experience the rare and exalted state of weightlessness

The weightless flight is a journey that offers guests the chance to float like an astronaut and enjoy 10-times more hang-time than the world's best basketball player.

Nicole Kidman, Keith Urban, Martha Stewart, Joey Fatone, Ozzy Osbourne, Rob Dyrdek, Beatrice of York, Professor Stephen Hawking, Billy Bush, Gavin Newsom, Burt Rutan, Miles O'Brien, and others passengers who've flown with ZERO-G and proclaimed it to be one of the most thrilling experiences of their lives.

This is the identical weightless flight experience used by NASA to train its astronauts and used by Ron Howard and Tom Hanks to film Apollo-13. Flights last approximately two hours and deliver 15 separate weightless experiences, each lasting about 30 seconds. The ZERO-G Experience is offered at a price of $4,950 per seat plus tax.
