Basically, from my understanding, you climb to a pre-determined safe altitude, anywhere between 30 and 35,000ft. The they pretty much go into a series of dives with the participants not strapped in and they being to float around the cabin (correct me if I'm wrong or elaborate on the procedures).
|Quoting Starlionblue (Reply 1):|
You're almost right. Using a simple dive would make for a short flight. The aircraft climbs sharply, then the pilots push the nose down in a parabolic arc, simulating weightlessness. At the end of the arc, they pull up sharply (at 2 G) and climb again for another arc. The cycle is performed numerous times during one flight.

I.C., so basibally they do a series of up and down arc.
