Available April - September in Cheshire, Northumberland and Nottinghamshire
Test nerves and take a 'head over heels' spin down a hill in a giant PVC ball, hitting breathtaking speeds of up to 30 mph. First of all, get paired up with another participant, before being harnessed into the sphere, rolled into position at the top of the hill, then sent on your way as the ball is pushed on its downward journey. The feeling of euphoria is enough to have anyone literally dizzy with excitement as the ball goes spinning and bouncing its way down the hill, before coming to a standstill by crashing into the huge net at the bottom. Afterwards, feel welcome to relax in the surroundings with friends, family and other participants for the day, watching others roll.
Events run most weekends between April and September.
Must be fit, healthy and not pregnant. Min height 4ft, max weight 18 stone. Min age 12, max 60. A brief health questionnaire is to be completed before the ride. Parental consent required for any participant under 18.
High wind or heavy rain can make sphereing unsafe and any cancellations are made with safety in mind. Call the weather line on the morning of the experience to confirm if it is going ahead.
Expect to be at the venue for up to an hour, with up to one minute actually rolling in the ball.
