If weightlessness isn't enough, Sir Richard Branson is just about ready to take you to outer space. Virgin Galactic's "Spaceship Two" has been cleared for test flights and is expected to begin commercial flights in 2013.
More than 520 people have already signed up for the two-and-a-half hour flight that will take them 62 miles above the earth. The price tag for that journey? $200,000. (It's worth noting that the wait list for Virgin Galactic is already longer than the total number of people who have been in space since the first trip in 1961.)

Of course, for those who prefer to stay earthbound, there are plenty of other options. You could go Yak Skiing in Tibet — or dive with a Great White Shark in Mexico.
Or, if speed is your need, you can strap into the driver's seat of a Nascar vehicle and drive at speeds of 170 mph or higher. The Nascar Racing Experience travels to roadways around the country, including Atlanta, Texas, Charlotte and Las Vegas, letting between 80,000 and 100,000 people per year get in touch with their inner Kyle Busch for prices ranging from $365 to $3,000.
"The majority of people come out and do this and think 'We're going to check this off our bucket list'," says Bob Lutz, president and CEO of Nascar Racing Experience and Mario Andretti Racing Experience. "But once they drive the race cars, it's addictive. We get a lot of repeat business."
