Zorbing, like washing machines, involves vigorous spinning, but only one encourages grass stains. Somersault across meadows with today’s Groupon: £15.50 for a zorbing experience at SphereMania.
Tumbling around in an array of inflatable activities, SphereMania rolls out a dizzy carpet to adrenaline-seekers across the country. The company pumps up a trio of sphering experiences, strapping in daring duos with the Harness Zorbing. A member of the British Franchise Association (BFA), their accredited balls can be found rolling from hill-tops of the North to valleys in the South West with speeds reaching up to 30 mph.
Thrill-seekers can kick off their shoes, and be kitted-up before clambering inside the human-sized hamster ball. The instructor will strap the rider and their other partner-in-crime opposite into the interior harnesses, before delivering a short health and safety briefing prior to take-off. With a gentle push, the zorbing commences. Gathering speed down the grassy hill, racing to the bottom in 30 seconds flat, zorbies can see the countryside spin by as their world turns upside down over and over again.
