NASA often creates devices that simulate the forces of gravity on the body to train astronauts for launch and teach civilians to empathize with the moon. Experience fun forces with today’s Groupon to Adventure Promotions. Choose from the following options:
- For $10, you get five gyrosphere rides at Sirata Beach Resort in St. Petersburg or University Mall in Tampa (a $25 value). The five rides can be used for multiple patrons in multiple visits.
- For $175, you get a two-hour gyrosphere rental (a $350 value).
- For $300, you get a four-hour gyrosphere rental (a $600 value).
For areas more than 20 miles outside of the 33605 zip code, up to a $35 travel fee that is not included in this Groupon may be charged for rental.
Dreamed up by NASA engineers to prep pilots and astronauts for takeoff, Adventure Promotions’ gyrosphere piles on gravity with a fun tri-axle device once showcased in Tampa’s Museum of Science & Industry. Riders whose height ranges from 4 feet to 6 feet, 7 inches can slide or Monster Mash into the spinning rings for an ab-centric exercise, with their core serving as the hub for rotating X, Y, and Z axes. Patrons at either Adventure Promotions location spin into orbit on the futuristic contraption while a focused equilibrium wards off motion sickness. Meanwhile, those celebrating birthday parties, family reunions, or the discovery of a third weekend day can clear out a 10'x10’ area in their backyards and send party-goers swirling for two or four hours.
