There are 5 different rides to choose from, each one as intense as the last, and pricing is based on how many thrills you want to experience.
Zero Gravity takes safety very seriously, and they require each visitor to read and sign a release form. They have a had a flawless safety record since they're opening back in 1992, and they take every safety precaution necessary on each of their rides, including the bungee jump, the free fall experience, and the skycoaster. They have a few height and weight restrictions for each ride, so plan accordingly if you have younger ones in your group.
