“Take the leap of faith!”
Zero Gravity Thrill Amusement Park is a Texas amusement park. Owned by Amusement Management International, Zero Gravity has been in operation more than 16 years in Dallas, Texas The park currently operates 5 rides: Bungee Jump - seven story Bungee tower - a permanent 7 story platform designed especially for bungee jumping Skycoaster - 110 foot high hang-gliding/flying simulator that reaches speeds up to 60 mph. Ejection Seat (Texas Blast Off) - Rockets straight up 150 feet into the air with the speed of a dragster... zero to 70 mph in 1.2 seconds. Nothin' But Net - Freefall 100 feet into a net below from a 16-story tower. Skyscraper - Towering propeller, speeding 60 mph, pulls 4Gs.
Went to this park as part of a "roller coaster road trip." Out of all of our destinations this one seemed the most "sketchy" since it's just a bunch of high intensity rides grouped together in a small field, reminiscent of a carnival that's easily put up and taken down. The staff was a little on the goofy/joking side - they have to test the bungee jumping before customers. Our guide did a fancy flip but something went wrong and he ended up needing his emergency cord. I guess it was good to see that the safety back-ups are in fact functional. They were professional when they needed to be, but definitely did their fair share of goading trying to worry us about the next extreme ride we were facing.
Ended up doing all 5 rides - you can pay per ride or do multiple for a reduced rate. I'm glad I did all of the rides, but probably wouldn't do Skycoaster (giant swing on your stomach) or Ejection Seat (slingshot style) again. I've seen/done other ones in other parks that were better for the cost.
Must do Nothin' But Net! Just being unclipped and freefalling has to be one of the scariest things I've ever done. They've even done tests that measure a human's reaction time with extreme adrenaline - fast flashing numbers on a watch that one cannot read under normal circumstances, but while falling have the ability to see - so time really does "slow down" while you're falling!
