Brilliant! So much fun! We were absolutely knackered and it really brought out our competitive side. Which made it all more fun! Roy was great in getting us up and going. Tug of war, races, space hopper! Was so much for our hen group!

Had a fantastic time doing the old School sports day! the venue was at a sport facility where families go, so might need to rethink the location especially if the group have outfits or writing that might be inappropriate to children otherwise a good laugh, very competitive with one another and the instructor made the day memorable

Great fun! It was a hard to find as the address given on here was the wrong one but the actual event was a good ice breaker!

We had such a laugh, it was great to return to our childhood and to play the games from when we were little. Of course, watching mature ladies charging down the sports hall getting extremely competitive with each other made it that more special. The organiser was great and very organised but he had his hands full with us. The red team (my team) won of course..

Thsio was a good laugh. Girls were aprehensive at first but got into it and really enjoyed the silly games and compatition. The guy leading the activity was friendly and made everyone at ease. Shorter then i had been told however this was not a problem as we were warn out enough.

So much fun. We loved getting in to teams to play games many of us hadn't even had the opportunity to play at school, like tug of war. Brilliant!

Great laugh but did not last the full hour even though the lady said we could redo some of the sports day not really ideal as should have something backed up if we had finished everything.

Really great fun however very intense if you're not used to exercise! There was no warm up and I would suggest you eat very well before hand as its very physical. But misleading with the rope as tug of war was not part of the activity!

This was so much fun! We laughed so much. It was ran really well and we had good instruction. A lot more strenuous than we expected, but we still had tonnes of fun.

Pretty fun but outrageously expensive considering you have 1 hour in a sports hall! Also quite far outside of Brighton.

The concept of this is really good, and we had a good time. I think at times the instructor was quite intense, which is clearly because there were other groups after us every hour. I think it might be better to ‘read the room’ as it were and have one or two less activities if the group is quite chilled. Also shouting at us to leave immediately at the end did make it feel like you are on a conveyor belt, which we clearly were.

I didn't do this myself as I'm claustrophobic, but the girls that did had great fun and I felt no pressure to particpate, and they thought up games to include those of us who didn't want to be in the bubbles which was a nice touch

This was hilarious! A few bruises later but we all laughed a lot - it was great fun and a new experience for most of us. The sun was out which was a bonus.

Thank you SO much to Lance. After completing another challenge that day, we went to Lance completely worn out and ready to give up. But all his games were so much fun we didn’t want it to end! Definitely recommend this activity! The bubbles are so much fun. Backwards rolls, bouncing in to each other. Thank you Lance you made the games and event amazing!!! Would love to do it again.

This was great, loved it and a real giggle. Would have been nicer for the bubbles at the end to have been chilled and cups provided so we could have actually drunk it

Great activity, the instructor made the session fun for us all and got us all involved. Only criticism is that it would have been better if the hall was air conditioned as it got hot in the zorbs. And if there was music. But otherwise we had loads of fun!

What fun, exhausting, but fun. If you can't manage the whole time in your bubble, then you have the option to play other games. The instructor had a great sense of humour and was very patient with us. Would recommend if you're up for a laugh.

This was great fun!!! I only rate down as the bottle of bubbly we were given at the end we were unable to drink as it was at a school - would have been a great way to finish the activity!
