ZERO-G Takes New Year's in Vegas to Extravagant New Heights With Weightless Flights on December 30 and 31

Celebrate 2008 With Vegas' Phenomenal New Year's Party in the Sky

Las Vegas, Nevada, UNITED STATES

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwire - October 24, 2007) - Celebrate this New Year's unlike any before with an out-of-this-world weightless adventure aboard Zero Gravity Corporation's (ZERO-G®), G-FORCE ONE. ZERO-G, the first and only FAA-approved provider of commercial weightless flights, will take guests up, up and away on December 30 and 31 to experience what's destined to be Vegas' most-talked-about New Year's celebration to date. The experience offered by ZERO-G is the only commercial opportunity on Earth for individuals to experience true "weightlessness" without going to space. This is the identical weightless flight experience used by NASA to train its astronauts and by Ron Howard and Tom Hanks to film "Apollo 13." ZERO-G offers regular flights for the general public from its home base at McCarran International Airport in Las Vegas.

It's the city that offers the most fabulous attractions, accommodations and parties during the New Year holiday and beyond, but this year, Las Vegas will raise the bar higher yet with its most unique way to celebrate. This unforgettable weightless escapade will give guests the chance to fly like Superman, flip like an Olympic gymnast and enjoy 10-times more hang-time than the world's best basketball player. Flyers will have the chance to see water hover before their eyes, or release a handful of M&M's and chase them down like a game of human PacMan. Celebrating the New Year in an atmosphere that defies the laws of gravity will be the ultimate kick-off to the year 2008.

"Visitors flock to Vegas for New Year's to experience the most exclusive, incredible and memorable celebrations in existence. ZERO-G takes New Year's in Vegas a step beyond it all," said Dr. Peter H. Diamandis, CEO and Co-Founder of ZERO-G. "We're giving visitors the best of both worlds as there's no need to choose between ZERO-G and the quintessential Vegas party on the Strip. With our weightless flights scheduled in the early afternoon, they can experience it all -- flipping and floating over the Strip by day, and watching the incredible fireworks over Las Vegas Boulevard by night."

Weightless flight is an opportunity that a select few have experienced, but those who have call it amazing and life-changing. Professor Stephen Hawking, Martha Stewart, Billy Bush, Burt Rutan, Miles O'Brien, Princess Beatrice of York and cast members of "The Apprentice," and "The Biggest Loser" are just a few notable passengers who've flown with ZERO-G and proclaimed it to be one of the most thrilling experiences of their lives. Numerous astronauts including Buzz Aldrin and Anousheh Ansari also have enjoyed ZERO-G voyages. ZERO-G has played a role in several blockbuster hits including "Matrix 2," "Matrix 3" and most recently, "Sunshine. "
