Harness Sphereing is the most popular of our Sphereing activities.
Hitting 30mph down a hill in a huge inflatable ball is a pretty awesome experience.
A tried and tested product over a decade; we have fine tuned our Spheres and confidently offer the best Hill Rolling product on the market.
The concept is simple, two people wearing full body harnesses are attached inside the Sphere, then rolled down a hill at up to 30mph. Harness Sphereing is not for the faint-hearted and could not be described as a gentle ride! More importantly though it’ll be the most fun and biggest adrenaline rush you may ever experience.
Harness Spheres always have two participants in, strapped in opposite each other, so you will ride head over heels down the hill.

- What are the differences between Harness Sphereing® and Aqua Sphereing® ?
Harness Sphereing 2 people climb inside the ball wearing a full harness, and are attached inside the Sphere. As you roll down the hill (really fast) you are going round and round with the ball. Its extreme (and definintely NOT a gentle ride!) but brilliant fun.
Aqua Sphereing 1, 2 or 3 people can ride in the Aqua Sphere along with lots of water. Aqua Sphereing is the less extreme variety of Sphereing, catering for all the family (as long as you’re aware that you will get very very wet!) You are not harnessed in the ball, and basically slip and slide around as gravity and the water take you down the hill at high speed!
- How do I breathe in the Aqua Sphere?
There is only enough water in the Sphere for you to slip and slide in – you will not spend time under the water, just in it. SphereMania has very strict H&S regulations and our Spheres and the rides are tested over and over again by various Health&Safety experts.
- How many rolls do I get?
This depends on the voucher that you have, or what booking you have made. Most vouchers entitle the recipient(s) to 1 roll down the hill. Additional rolls can usually be purchased on site on the day of your event (subject to availability.)
