What goes up, must come down. And when you go up at Zero Gravity, expect to come down out of the sky at top speeds! Try all five rides, because with names like The Texas Blastoff, Nothin' But Net and The Skyscraper, you know you're in for one wild ride at this attraction.

Get ready to experience high-flying thrills at Zero Gravity in Dallas. This collection of gravity-defying rides has got your name on it. So strap yourself in, keep your eyes open and brace yourself for a free-falling afternoon of excitement.

As one of the top attractions in Dallas, Zero Gravity offers five adrenaline-pumping rides. Choose just one (bet you can't!) or go for the whole enchilada for a specially reduced price.

Zero Gravity opened in 1992 with just one ride − the seven-story Bungee Tower − and hasn't slowed down since.

Other death-defying thrill rides at Zero Gravity include:

The Skycoaster − It'll send you soaring through the air at 60 mph, where you'll linger at 100 feet, then drop right down as your stomach follows close behind.

The Texas Blastoff − Picture a giant slingshot with you in it. You'll rocket 150 feet up in the air at 70 mph, then come back down in a twisting, topsy-turvy free fall.

Nothin' But Net − Ever wondered what it's like to drop from a 16-story tower? Here's your chance to find out! You'll freefall into a safety net with (gulp!) no bungee, no cords and no harness. It doesn't get anymore real than this.

The Skyscraper − If you're ready for some G's, the Skyscraper is ready to deliver. Sit down and relax in a 165-foot propeller − until takeoff, that is. You'll get whipped around until you reach Four G's.
