Things to do
For just £376, you and up to 15 other people can play football with a chaotic twist... This 1-Hour Zorbing Football Guided Experience offers families the chance to battle it out on the pitch in the safest way possible. You'll get to wear inflatable bubble suits while you tackle each other and scramble around the pitch.
Players will be rotated every few minutes to ensure everybody gets plenty of fun game time. If you can stop yourself howling with laughter for long enough, that's okay but beware of your opponent... They can swoop out of nowhere, dribble the ball forward and smash it home past the goalie while you're in a giggle fit on the floor. You see? There are all kinds of new challenges to face when you throw bubbles into the mix!
Rules are the same as standard football except you are wearing a protective bubble and barging people to the floor isn’t frowned upon. A referee will always be on hand to run through the rules and keep things in order so don't worry kids!
Bubble Football is a hilarious spin on the beautiful game, so strap yourselves into your giant inflatable bubble and step onto the pitch and bump your way through a thrilling five-a-side match.
