Zero Gravity Corporation Announces 2020 Flight Schedule

 

ZERO GRAVITY CORPORATION ANNOUNCES 2020 FLIGHT SCHEDULE
Weightless flights planned across the country

 Zero Gravity Corporation (ZERO-G) has released its 2020 flight schedule set to bring weightless experiences to eager flyers across the country. The 12-city tour will include Atlanta, Austin, Houston, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Miami, New England, New York City, Orlando, San Francisco, Seattle and Washington D.C.

“We are excited to continue offering these incredible moments for flyers who want a taste of outer space adventure,” said Matt Gohd, ZERO-G CEO. “Whether you’re floating through the airplane cabin like Superman or flipping like a gymnast, it’s a moment our guests won’t soon forget.”

As the consumer space race heats up and interest in commercial space travel deepens, the flights offered by ZERO-G continue to be the only FAA-approved opportunities in the U.S. for individuals to experience true weightlessness without actually going to space. At a fraction of the cost of consumer space flights in development, ZERO-G is paving the way for the general public to enjoy the wonders of interstellar travel.

Each ZERO-G mission is designed for maximum fun. The aircraft’s interior is a zero-gravity playroom, complete with padded floors and walls and video cameras to record the unforgettable moments. When experiencing zero gravity, guests can fly the length of an airplane cabin, pour water in the air and watch the droplets hover before their eyes, release a handful of M&M’s and chase them down like a game of human Pac-Man, and enjoy 10-times more hang-time than the world’s best basketball player.

Valued at $5,400 per person, the ZERO-G experience includes breakfast, flight training, 15 periods of weightlessness, a ZERO-G flight suit, ZERO-G merchandise, a Regravitation Lunch Celebration, certificate of weightless completion and photos and video to remember this thrilling experience.

The full 2020 schedule can be found below:

  • Atlanta – March 21

 Nick Cannon, host of “Wild ‘N Out,” rapper, actor, comedian, entrepreneur, record producer, radio and television personality, appeared at Sugar Factory American Brasserie at the Fashion Show in Las Vegas on Sunday. While there, he talked with movie producer and owner of Hollywood’s TCL Chinese Theatre Elie Samaha and Sugar Factory founder Charissa Davidovici about their upcoming collaboration on Theatre Box, opening in San Diego in spring 2018.

“Theatre Box is truly a one-of-a-kind 70,000 square-foot entertainment complex with eight luxury theatres and 700 seats combined, including San Diego’s first IMAX theatre,” said Samaha. “It will house the world’s largest retail confectionary store and the first TCL Chinese Theatre outside of Hollywood, and we’re looking forward to combining the signature services and experiences from each brand.”

“We’re excited to partner with TCL Chinese Theatre and Nick Cannon to bring our world-renowned sweets and treats to San Diego,” said Davidovici. “Guests will be able to enjoy our full restaurant menu right at their movie seat, including the signature goblets, over the top desserts and insane milkshakes, while watching the latest blockbuster and everyone will receive their own theatre box to choose their favorite candies. No other theatre in the world has a candy store with more than 500 selections!”

“I can’t wait to show Theatre Box to you all!” said Cannon. “It’s going to have the very first Wild ‘N Out sports bar and arcade with 15,000 square feet of giant screen TVs, amazing cocktails and the newest interactive games mixed with old school arcade entertainment.”

In addition to the new features, Theatre Box will also include TCL Chinese Theatre’s iconic movie star handprints and footprints such as John Wayne, Clint Eastwood, Tom Cruise, The Rock, Jack Nicholson, Paul Newman and Sophia Loren. There are also plans for a beer garden on the rooftop and star-studded LA movie premieres with much more to come.

Nick arrived to the red carpet wearing a red varsity jacket before heading into the candy store. Exclaiming his love for candy, Nick filled bags with tennis balls sour gumballs, gummy octopuses and fried eggs, watermelon fruit sours, cotton candy crunchers, psychedelic jawbreakers and Sugarpova gumball sporty mix.

He graciously stopped and posed for photos with fans and kids in the restaurant before heading upstairs to the Chocolate Lounge with a group of Wild ‘N Out girls. After taking photos and selfies on the whimsical carousel, the group sipped on the brand new Insane Campfire Spiked S’mores Coffee Milkshake, Frozen Chocolate Bacon S’mores, Frozen Chocolate Spiced Coffee, Mai Tai Goblet and White Gummy Goblet. Nick also enjoyed Drake’s specialty Night Owl goblets, made with Virginia Black Whiskey.

The group dined on dishes including club sandwich, bruschetta, chicken and waffles, bleu cheese bacon burger and salmon salad.

Theatre Box will be located at 4665 Clairemont Dr., San Diego in the Gaslamp District.

Career Breaks … the new vacation?

 

Career Breaks … the new vacation?

Oct. 18 marks nationwide event designed to educate workforce on how to realize travel dreams

Ever dreamed of taking six months off to go to another country? Or to travel and see the world beyond Nevada? On Tuesday, Oct. 18, Meet, Plan, Go! (MPG) is hosting a local event in Las Vegas to teach the community the ins and outs of making a career-break a reality. 

The event, which takes place from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. at 3085 East Russell Road, features four panelists – two career breakers, a life coach and a financial advisor. The discussion will focus on everything from first-hand experiences to the intricacies of planning a career break, to determining if a career break is right for the individual. The goal? To let people know they can take a career break.

“Because we live in a society that doesn’t find value in taking time off, we wanted to create a community for people who do want to break out of the norm and travel for an extended period of time,” said MPG co-founder Sherry Ott.

Panelists for the event are:

– Abby Tegnelia, editor of Vegas Magazine/travel blogger, former ex-pat (expatriate)

– Diana Edelman, public relations professional/travel blogger, former long-term traveler

– Judy Irving, life coach

– Becky Buckley, certified financial planner

 “When assembling the panel I wanted to make sure attendees could come away from the evening with a firm idea of what to expect from a career break, along with the tools necessary to do something of this magnitude,” said JoAnna Haugen, MPG’s localhost. “This event is designed to offer participants the opportunity to meet inspirational speakers and like-minded travelers; get motivation, contacts and resources necessary to plan the trip of a lifetime; and to start taking concrete steps forward to go on an adventure.”

In addition to offering tools and resources for planning a career break, they will also address the main concerns that prevent people from taking a career break, usually centered around financial, career-related, societal, and safety concerns.

Today, career breaks are becoming more and more of an option for workers. Last year, more than 2,400 people registered for the inaugural MPG event – 23 percent of which were in a trip planning stage pre-event. In a post-event survey, that number rose to 41 percent. “We want career breaks to be more acceptable in America,” says co-founder Michaela Potter. “In fact, we would love to see a career break on every resume. And with the support of our 17 inspiring hosts, their panelists, and our sponsors, including Intrepid Travel, we are making great inroads to achieving that goal.”

In addition to the Las Vegas event, this year’s MPG locations include: Austin, Boston, Chicago, Denver, Honolulu, Los Angeles, Minneapolis, New Orleans, New York City, Orlando, Portland, San Francisco, Seattle, St. Louis, Washington DC and Toronto.
Registration for the nationwide event is currently open. For more information, or to register:http://meetplango.com/national-event/2011-las-vegas-event/.
