Gyroscope hire in Cumbria with A & R Bouncy Castles. Developed and engineered by NASA for training its astronauts, the Gyroscope is an innovative, rarely seen, rarely experienced sit down ride. It is derived from NASA’s version of their 1960’s astronaut trainer; it’s the closest experience to zero gravity.
The Gyroscope or spaceball gives the participant the feeling of complete weightlessness. The operator spins the hoops in different directions, which simulates the experience of weightlessness in the roll and tumble of outer space to give the participant one of the most interesting and different rides of their lives.
We will strap you in, and then it is time to brace yourself for the ride of a lifetime! Gyroscopes spin a rider upside down, sideways, and end-over-end in a gyroscopic motion. The rider experiences total freedom with 360 degrees of unrestricted movement.
You can ride a gyroscope again and again, repeating the experience with different intensity, roll and tumble, all without the feeling of stomach discomfort. Yes, that’s right, no stomach discomfort at all! Riders do not experience motion sickness because of the changing direction of the spin, which keeps their inner ear balanced.
It is manually operated so the speed can be controlled to suit the rider, it can be ridden by children as young as five, size permitting, and senior citizens in good health, as old as sixty-five.
So strap your feet in, harness up and get ready for the ride of your life! The gyroscope is a fantastic party and entertainment ideas on their own, or as a compliment to a range of other activities. It has proven very popular at all kinds of events, company parties, corporate fun days, company fun days, team building days and festivals.
