EVGA has brought you products that make your computer fly for years,
but now it's time to make our customers fly as well. EVGA has
partnered with Zero G to bring our customers an amazing weightless
experience. Imagine free falling 10,000 feet, without a parachute!

up. This rollercoaster effect will generate 25-30 seconds of
weightlessness on each drop.
