For nearly 20 years, Zero Gravity has continuously developed new and better ways to hurl Texans and European businessmen through Dallas's green sky. Thrillseekers explore an Arcadia of kinetic, physics-defying delights: The Skyscraper propels riders on each end of a 165-foot propeller through the air at a breath-stealing 60 mph. Secured to a super-elastic bungee cord with nylon backup safety straps, daredevils learn what it might be like to be born of an airborne pterodactyl as they pitch themselves off a seven-story tower with the Bungee Jump. Take in the majestic flatness of northern Texas on the Texas Blastoff as you shoot 150 feet in the air at 70 mph in a safety cradle, or veer vertiginous with the Nothin' but Net, a 130-foot, untethered free fall. The Skycoaster straps three friends into a 110-foot-high hang-gliding simulator, offering the thrill of flying without the hassle of actually going somewhere.
All of Zero Gravity's rides come with a few restrictions; customers must be at least 42 inches tall for the Skycoaster, and 48 inches tall for the Blastoff, and all attractions require that riders have no broken bones, heart conditions, or duffle bags filled with puppies. Specific restrictions vary from ride to ride.
Zero Gravity Thrill Amusement Park
For the past 20 years, Zero Gravity Thrill Amusement Park has been one of Dallas’ primary sources of satisfied screams, launching Texans into lower orbit with palpitating rides that test the confines of physics. Thrill-seekers can exhaust adrenaline reserves on hair-raising attractions, including the seven-story bungee jump, the Skycoaster, and the Texas Blastoff, which acts like a giant slingshot that rockets riders 70 miles per hour toward the sky. Nothin’ but Net sends amusement park goers plummeting on a 130-foot freefall, and the Skyscraper's enormous propellers whip guests around with 4 gees of force before serving up views of the city’s stunning skyline. Thanks to precautions designed specifically for each ride, Zero Gravity boasts a flawless safety record, whereas the park’s flexible schedule jump-starts hearts seven days per week, making it the perfect place for family, weekend, nighttime, and group activities.
