For less than $6000, two companies will let you briefly experience zero-gravity by taking you on a commercial version of the "vomit comet" that NASA astronauts use to train. These are jets which take a high parabolic arc such that for approximately 30 seconds, passengers are in a free fall that simulates zero-gravity. And you don't have to share the ride with any damned flying crabs.
