  • Too much fun but a little pricey. Should give a 2 for one deal. There really is no added cost on slow days. There were 2 of us and 2 others we did not know. Everyone had a great ride.  more »

  • So much Fun and Operators were friendly and helpful. We tried this on a Grab One deal so price was good.
  • Pricey, but worth it. The Zig zag and the new Drop track are the best, although you can't beat the standard one if you throw two or three people in the ball simultaneously
  • Very fun recommend the zig zag, wide and i only did the 1 each as it is pricey
  • This looks great, We just went as observers, got a great spot there and you can watch it all from a nice deck. Will be having a go in the summer as I was not keen to get went in the cold winter, they do have a nice spa there to warm up after the ride
  • I was on the fence about zorbing and thought the courses looked pretty vanilla. Pretty low expectations but wow it was unreal. 30 Seconds in a zorb feels much longer. We all did track 2 and really enjoyed it.
