Things to Do in Las Vegas Besides Gamble
While gambling is definitely available in Las Vegas, it's far from the only activity to occupy your time while on vacation there. Las Vegas is home to a variety of activities ranging from unusual once-in-a-lifetime experiences to a more typical afternoon spent at the fair with your family. Vegas is a city with someone to offer everyone.

Zero G The Weightless Experience

The Zero G experience offers the opportunity to spend time in a completely weightless environment. It takes place on a modified Boeing 727 that flies out of McCarran International Airport. Make reservations early--flights are only available once every three to four months. As of August 2009, the cost of the Zero G experience is $4,950.00 plus 5 percent tax per person. The fee includes an orientation, group photo, approximately eight minutes of weightlessness and a celebration with refreshments after the flight. Family members or friends who would like to join you for the orientation and after-party while remaining on the ground can do so for a $195 non-flyer fee.
