Enter a giant clear globe and roll down an expanse of gorgeous rolling green hills; you'll feel like a hamster in an amazingly fun wheel but with the added slip and slide fun of water! An adventure sport like no other, you'll cry laughing and roll screaming along 2 awesome tracks.
Get the ride of your life with this awesome, hair raising globe ride. If you don't know what a globe is; imagine a giant bubble that functions kinda like a hamster wheel but that is completely clear and filled with litres of water. You will be right in the centre, slipping and sliding while the ball rolls and bounces down the track of gorgeous rolling hills. You'll laugh loads and probably scream; a Go Pro is installed in the inner sphere so every slip and hilarious moment will be captured on video! This package includes one ride down the Straight track and then another go on the Sidewinder track, filled with massive corners that send you zigzagging every which way!
On this experience you can choose from any two tracks:

SIDEWINDER TRACK: 350m of the twistiest track ever constructed and is the longest in the world. Slide in 40 litres of water (cool in summer, warm in winter) getting speed up on the straights before riding up the sides of the 6 massive corners. Ride Wet or Dry ride style available.
MEGA TRACK: The fastest, longest and steepest downhill ball rolling track in the WORLD!
