Ever fancied being a hamster in a wheel? No? Well what about climbing inside a washing machine?

The latest craze in outdoor activities is call sphereing  - you're bundled in a plastic ball (similar to a hamster in a treadmill) and then rolled down a hill. We've three types to choose from, harness sphereing, where you're bundled in a plastic ball (similar to a hamster in a treadmill) and then rolled down a hill, or aqua sphereing where the same thing happens, only there's no harness and they throw in some water for good measure. Probably cold water. There's also now sphereing in the dark -  "eclipse sphereing". You can book for yourself or as a gift,  sphereing for two or  more people. We can offer locations throughout the UK including sphereing in Scotland and sphereing in Wales.

Most spheres are designed sphereing for two people who can enjoy the ride (and each other's fear) simultaneously, but with Aqua Sphereing three people can enjoy the fun at the same time, and some spheres have also been constructed for solo performance.

The sphere is a big plastic ball– usually about 12 feet tall. Inside the big ball, there's another, smaller ball which makes up the 6-foot chamber where you ride. The smaller ball is attached to the outer shell by nylon straps so there's an air cushion between the two.

But don't let the size and weight fool you – they can reach speeds of up to 30 miles per hour and you can roll as far as half a mile if the track is long enough.

Sphereing is generally done on a hillside but there are also special metal ramps for it in places where there are no hills. It can also be done in the air inside a vertical wind tunnel and there's also a mellower version of Sphereing with no straps and some water inside the ball, making the ride a bit of wet fun, fit for the whole family.

So whether your are an adrenaline junky or just planing a fun activity for the whole family, sphereing might be just the thing.

Also If you're looking to give a special gift to someone you know who likes bungee jumping, canyoning or even paintballing  then why not give them a voucher to arrange their own day.
