Zero gravity flights, nicknamed " vomit comets" are coming to Las Vegas in April.
Tix are $5400 or charter a flight for 12 for $55,000.
Forget the price, this is truly a once in a lifetime opportunity.

Will you be taking a trip on the vomit comet?

Well, it's certainly more affordable than a Virgin Galactic space flight ($5400 vs $250k). If the ticket price is still too steep, maybe you can get one comped or win as a prize.
Have you tried 22 tonight? I said 22.

What would it cost me to charter a Cessna, unbuckle my seat belt, and have the pilot just dive over and over again? Gotta be cheaper than $5400...

Actually, probably more. a private charter from LAS to PHX alone is north of $7k and up.

The attraction with the ZeroG is that the cabin of the jet is padded and allows enough room to fly around. a small plane or jet will be full of seats with a cabin you can't even stand up in without hitting your head on an overhead bin.

I think with ZeroG, it would be very important to be the first one on. Once someone chucks their breakfast, the whole space will always have a funk.
