Loved this one. I am in my 40's and found this to be amazing fun. The gopro camera provided us with a great view of our ride and the outdoor heated spa afterwards was very relaxing.

Went for 2 rides and love it! I would definitely go again for the sidewinder.. so much fun. Try to start stand up in and push on the ball the most you can, you ll go faster and you won't stop at every corner :-)

expensive, but a great ride, I took two runs. Took my own go pro and bought their photos. They rent clothes if you did not bring a suite.
