Harness Sphereing

Listed under Extreme Challenge in North Island, New Zealand.

Pin It

If roller coaster rides leave you yawning, harness sphereing might be the next step for you. Tied securely to the inner wall of an inflatable sphere with a willing companion, with three feet of air between you and the outdoors, you are closed neatly inside and free-rolled down a hill at what feel like ludicrous speeds (usually something around 30mph) until you come to a bouncy halt at the end of the course. The sport originated in comparatively warm New Zealand and is best done in the summer to prevent your 'zorbus' from getting stuck in the mud. It is quite possibly a good idea not to have lunch beforehand. A hamster ball this is not.
