We fell in love with this idea the moment we saw a video on you-tube. Anything “one of a kind” is worth trying once – or three times like we did. I couldn’t pull the kids away from this one! A huge rubber-like ZORB, filled with 10 gallons of fresh water – with 1-3 people inside -- then they roll you down a 1,000 foot grass hill. The best part is for each ride, they give you a hand held GOPRO to video yourself on the ride down – making it twice the fun as you get to experience it all over again. It’s hot in Tennessee, so all you need is a bathing suit or t-shirt and shorts … bring your own go-pro or borrow theirs – watching is free – purchasing your video is extra if you want to continue to relive the fun at home. We went on a summer weekday around 11am – they open at 10 – and it’s advisable to go early or go later to avoid the lines. We didn’t have any trouble with the wait – we arrived and locked our valuables in the car, stowed our shoes in a cubby and headed out to the park. Music, benches and tables make it a comfortable spot to spend some time just watching the fun – even if you are not riding, you should go watch! Safe for kids 5+ … it’ s a great family time. The shuttle rides everyone up the hill – then you get to choose one of 3 courses to try – that’s why we did it three times – hard to choose and we wanted to experience them all! My favorite? Hard to say -- the far right course combines both of the others ... a little bouncing around and a little speed - so it' s a great first choice. The far left is the only course that must be ridden alone - but definately the most FUN. Take a minute to visit them online at www.outdoorgraivtypark.com to view some videos to get an idea – it’s not nearly as scary as you would think – only my husband felt a little “dizzy” after, but the truth is you never go upside down, and it’s safe to wear your sunglasses on the way!
