Great service and communication in order to book the Zorb Football. The kids really enjoyed themselves and was really well organised by the team. Definitely recommend for kids and grownups too.

A truly amazing adventure.
May 2018 • Couples
I'm writing this after just leaving and I must say it was an amazing time. We were greeted nicely and everyone working there were helpful. After first being apprehensive about the experience the gentleman reassured me and even gave me time to gather myself. Me and my partner loved the aqua zorbing and would recommend it to anyone who loves a good adventure.

Best of both Zorbs
Aug 2017 • Couples
I tried both harnessed and aqua zorbing on my visit to SphereMania last weekend and had a blast - as did the rest of my group. If you're going to try both go for the aqua zorb last as you do get totally soaked. Jimmy and his team were friendly, upbeat and guided us smoothly through the various processes of the experience. They made sure we were fully briefed with the riding positions for both types of zorbing, reiterating the most important part again when we were in the spheres. As others have mentioned it isn't a comfortable ride, but what adrenaline sports are? Aqua zorbing was the best by far, absolutely hilarious.

Definitely experience both Harness AND Aqua (In that order).

The guys who set us up were very pleasant and genuine. The zorb rides seemed to last a very long time! (Longest in the UK) Everything else was very swift and well organised. Bring change for a hot drink on a cool day. The water in the zorb was warm, which was relieving after the bucket of water that gets thrown over you "for lubrication" ;) An absolutely hilarious activity to do with a partner, family member or friend. I never stopped laughing in the aqua zorb- definitely my favourite of the two. Watch out for the side plugs though, they will have you in the head.... which only adds to the laughter! Cheers Jimmy!

Lots of fun
Aug 2017 • Couples
The staff were all friendly and chatty. We were warned our knuckles could scuff on the inside of the ball and told what to do if our legs came loose from the harness. These things happened, as warned, and although I ended up with some small abrasions on my hands it was still a very funny experience. I would recommend it to people who enjoy trying new things. It definitely gets your adrenalin going and we couldn't stop laughing. Some people say it's painful- it wasn't always the most comfortable but then you are rolling down a hill in a giant ball! Sphere mania team were helpful and made sure we were ok getting in and out of the ball etc. I took my mum as a mothers day present, and we also went with our partners. Really enjoyed it.

Never laughed so much
Jul 2017 • Couples
Went on Saturday to visit the Spheremania Nottingham venue and my partner talked me into doing the ride, never laughed so much in my whole life.

After the Health and Safety talk and told how to ride the ball safely we both climbed into the smallest hole you've ever seen...

I screamed all the way down the hill, so much fun, wanted to do this again.

Thank you to the lovely staff for getting me into your ball it was truly amazing... I will return with my friends. X

Traumatic experience!
Jul 2017 • Friends
I recently visited Sphere mania with my best friend as a suprise birthday gift and did not expect how painful this would be! I feel compelled to leave a review to warn others not to zorb lightly.. After little safety talk we were strapped in and pushed down the hill which is immediately painful! Both my legs came out the harness and I was in a lot of pain. Full of adrenaline I didn't feel the full affects and thought atleast we can laugh about it afterwards. I came out with awful bruising, cuts across every finger on my hands, and a sprained neck and shoulder which resulted in 2 days off work and lost money for me, now I'm on painkillers and still can't sleep because of the pain! It'll be 3-4 weeks before my neck and shoulder are back to normal.

To anyone considering zorbing.. don't do it lightly!

Awful and painful experience
Jul 2017 • Couples
I really don't understand how people enjoyed this!!! It was the worst experience we've ever had. Not one part of it was enjoyable!
No health and safety checks just a quick flash of a signatory form...once it was over I now understand why!!

Felt awful all the way down and couldn't wait for it to be over. My head banged against the metal clips for the top section of the harness. Both our legs came lose from their straps and it is extremely difficult to keep them down from kicking the other person when turning in the ball!

Ribs, back, legs and knuckles are hurting on both. Shredded our knuckles from holding on the the straps...told when it end we we were holding it too high...they never told us this at the start, but also it was because every time you rolled over your hands would be forced to the roof of the balls so unavailable!!

Wouldn't recommend to anyone else...partner in the ball even passed out!

Hi Leanne, We are sorry to learn that you didn't enjoy your Zorbing experience with us. Zorbing is an extreme activity and is by no means a smooth ride... this is emphasised at the time of booking and through the information pack provided. All of our equipment is checked daily in line with our strict H&S procedures and is inspected by the best bods in the business. No complaints were made to the onsite staff on the day.... in fact you left the following comment " New Experience my adrenaline was definitely pumping" I have uploaded this on to our photo section. We hope one day you might give Zorbing another try.
