Have you ever wondered what it would be like to fly through the wind and feel its force flowing around you? Well many of you reading this blog might be aware of the adventure leisure activity of Sphering, that is getting inside a giant inflatable ball and being pushed down a steep hill, Air sphering is the new development in the sphering world where they take the same principle but apply it to a wind tunnel! You and a willing companion are strapped within a giant inflatable ball in a vertical wind tunnel, which is then switched on and sends you fly up through the air! (Don’t worry though the tunnel has a roof otherwise you would be blown away for over a mile!!)
The wind in the tunnel can reach speeds of up to 150 mph which is comparable to a hurricane apparently, so the experience you will feel is at the same time unpredictable and exhilarating. Once you are lifted off the ground you are suspended in mid-air whilst the ball floats and bounces around the top of the wind tunnel.
Although it is certainly not a leisure activity for the faint hearted, Air Sphering is not just about crazy facts and used solely for the pleasure of adrenaline junkies, it can be an alternative less scary experience than other more dangerous leisure activities. Have you ever wanted to do skydiving but are too afraid to because of the heights involved and the fear of falling? Air Sphering is a great alternative to skydiving as it gives you a similar sensation of feeling what it is like to move through air quickly without the need to get into an airplane and being pushed out the door, plus it is totally safe. Safety is a priority and the wind levels can be controlled by the machine so the height the ball can go and the level of the experience can be controlled to suit the user. Plus you are strapped into an inflatable ball so risk is minimalized.
Hopefully this article hasn’t scared you off from experiencing Air Sphering as it is a fun activity which can be enjoyed safely by all the family as all you need to do is sit back and relax!
