What is Bumper Ball?
Bumper Ball (also called Loopy Ball, Bubble Soccer, Body Zorbing) is the first of it’s kind in New Zealand. In a typical game of Bumper Ball, teams of people get together to play football or soccer wearing giant bubbles (similar to zorb balls) with the aim of doing whatever it takes to score a goal.
Other games can also be played, including bullrush and last one standing. Our staff will work with you at your event to ensure everyone is having as much fun as possible.
