With no harnesses, you are completely free inside a 12' inflatable ball, as you and two other friends slip and slide around inside the ball in your swimming trunks with thirty litres of water. Instead of being thrown around with the ball you link your arms with your fellow friends and slide together down a hill, riding the water.
The general reaction people make is to laugh hysterically as they descend the hill (rolling and bouncing) at up to 35 miles per hour! There is actually no reason to be scared, our instructors will watch your safety the whole time.
You can not participate if you are:
- Suffering from high blood pressure, any heart condition, epilepsy, any back or neck (current or past) problems
- Under the influence of alcohol or drugs
- Undergoing medical treatment or have had an operation within the past twelve months
- Under 3ft 10ins or less than 12 years old or over 65 years old (Parental consent is required up to the age of 18 years old)
- Exceeding 18 stone (NB. Max girth 60 ins)
The business judgement of whether a customer can enjoy their experience, depending on a restriction, is final and will be decided upon by location staff on the day of the ride. If you suffer from any other conditions and are in doubt of if you are fit to participate, please contact us for further advice.
In very rare circumstances of periods of wet weather the experience may be cancelled, an alternative date will be offered to you.
As a guide, please expect to be at the site for 1 to 2 hours. However, at certain times in the season, the waiting time may be longer than this. Please be flexible and keep the whole day free to avoid any problems.
You are welcome to bring along friends and relatives to watch. There are strict health & safety regulations in place that must be followed.
We recommend that you wear comfortable trousers and a crew/polo neck t-shirt or jumper. You should wear clothes that protect and cover your shoulders/neck as you will be wearing a full climbing harness.
As the Sphere may be damaged by jewellery and belts, you will be asked to remove such items.
You should also note that you will be barefoot in the Sphere.
Please bring a towel or two with you as you will get wet!

Aqua Sphereing for 3 - 1 run in UK: Fascinating Facts
Sphereing is a recreational activity which emerged in the late 20th century. It involves rolling down a hill in an inflatable, usually transparent, double-hulled ball (also called a Sphere) made from PVC. The Sphere consists of two chambers. The outer chamber, which is the shell of the Sphere is 12ft tall, and the inner chamber is 6ft tall, meaning there is a 3ft cushion of air.
Sphereing originated in the UK and is the brainchild of Robert Price.
