To make the body produce adrenaline, people usually must kick a cop in the chin, juggle soldering irons, or trap wild animals underneath wet newspaper. Enjoy a more comfortable way to excite your cellular infrastructure with today’s Groupon: for $21, you get a single roll for two from Texas Sphere Ride in New Braunfels (a $59.90 value).
Texas Sphere's Texas spheres are 10-foot-wide, clear-rubber balls that cradle thrill-seekers in their hollow bouncy belly. Balls leap off the starting point to roll or bounce down a hill, gathering speed and leaving nothing but dust and pancaked cartoon characters in their wakes (click here to see a video of a sphere ride). Because each sphere harnesses two people, you can bring a pal and holler together or maintain decorum by yelling polite swears such as "Whip-pooooor-willlll!" or "Seabiscuit!"
Texas Sphere Ride
Texas Sphere Ride brandishes a novel thrill with its massive inflatable spheres that send adrenaline junkies tumbling along a fenced-in track. The hollow, cushioned plastic balls safely cradle strapped-in pairs as they gather speed, rolling and bouncing along a dirt path. For added excitement, Texas Sphere Ride’s partnership with Helicopter Tours of Texas augments spherical jaunts with a short ride in a chopper for a more heart-pounding adventure than a hostage negotiation in a cardiologist’s office.
