The Zero Gravity Thrill Amusement Park is full of adventuresome activities for individuals who are not faint of heart. The park is located ten minutes north of downtown Dallas. Activities like bungee jumping, free-falling, and hand gliding are possible options of those who visit the amusement park. Zero Gravity Thrill Amusement Park was established in 1992 and has continued to garner a steady stream of visitors since its doors first opened. Visitors to the amusement park want to experience an adrenaline rush and Zero Gravity provides a safe environment to do so. The park has earned the reputation as being the best place to go bungee jumping in Dallas.
There are five main attractions at Zero Gravity Thrill Amusement Park. The five attractions are Bungee Jumping, Skycoaster, Texas Blastoff, Nothing but Net and the Skyscraper. Bungee jumping is the most popular attraction at the park. Visitors begin their bungee jumping experience at the Air Boingo Tower. The Air Boingo Tower is a seven story permanent platform. A second attraction at the amusement park is called the Skycoaster. The Skycoaster is a hand-gliding simulator that sits over a hundred feet in the air. The glider reaches speeds of sixty miles per hour and is suitable for up to three persons to fly together. The Texas Blastoff was created for two people. The ride races up into the air at seventy miles per hour and twist, flips, and turns. Those who experience the ride are strapped down into racing seats that are affixed to a steel ring. The Skyscraper which is the park's latest installment is similar to the Skycoaster. The Skyscraper is meant to accommodate four people and is an enormous propeller that whips through the air, spinning like a windmill at sixty miles per hour. When the Skyscraper finally comes to a stop, riders can see a bird-eye view of downtown Dallas.
The final main attraction at the park is called Nothin but Net. Nothin but Net is exactly what it sounds like. For the experience, an individual is taken 16 stories into the air and then released without a parachute or bungee chord. Two nets are placed under the individual to safely break the fall.
Many customers have concerns about the safety issues of experiencing some of the adventures that Zero Gravity Thrill Amusement Park provide. The park makes every effort to minimize accidents and deaths by ensuring that rides have numerous safety systems, strong elastic or steel cords. There are also numerous professionals on-site that can properly equip individuals before they participate in the various attractions. Because no system is fail-safe the Zero Gravity Thrill Amusement Park requires participants to sign a release form. The release form frees the park from any liability of injury or death if something goes awry during one of the rides.
