Here we describe a recent event and have posted some fabulous images from Red Chilli Photography, taken in Sept 2015, at Bovey Castle in Devon for one of their client companies , illustrating a sample of what we can do for you.
Working with Catherine, the venue event manager, our event brief was to provide a few hours of light hearted ice breaking entertainment. We tailored our input to the given budget and the venue provided extra catering and a few small activities on top. The guests were on an overnight stay with dinner dance, networking and more.
On this occasion, apart from the beautiful castle, hotel and golf course location, we focused our part of the day on a tent we call “Dorothy”, one of our circus tents suitable for aerial acts.
(Note: we have an extensive range of circus tents for hire and on other occasions, with a big top as the main venue, smaller marquees can be linked to create a tent village with an exciting atmosphere to keep your guests engaged.)

Giant Footballs; 6 ft / 2m size bouncing kick power!
BUT WHY? What’s so good about them?
Why are we raving about the Giant MegaBall?
Put it this way..
A Giant MegaBall can withstand a lot!
The mega balls are made in Europe of thick inflatable material.
The big red is capable of supporting up to 300 kg!!
The big orange is capable of supporting up to 150 Kgs.
They are all tested in the Gymnic factory and made to EU standards.
You can bounce them, push them, roll them, climb on them, run at them, float them, get run over by them, levitate them, flip on to them, attack them! We have seen it all…. kids and adults try everything!
How many times do you see Massive GIANT Beach Balls?
The Giant inflatable beach balls, 3m diameter! Made in China, are more lightweight ( and can be popped more easily… but luckily repairable! ) as to be expected and very good for waterborne or aerial games like giant volleyball but still very capable of supporting children on top.
Believe me! Children and adults find every way possible to abuse the inflatables and have serious fun while they are doing it!
Learning about the planet!
The Inflatable globes are made in Germany and are super strong and very visual.
Learn where you are!
Here in Devon we are pumping up the world and now have the whole world on our doorstep; the whole world in his hands! On top of the world.. Enough!
They are fabulous add-ons to all our other hands on play activities, excellent in our festival kids play areas, great surprises during our theatre circus shows.
The Gymnic mega balls are massive compared to the usual gym balls but it’s great to have all sizes at the same time!
It doesn’t stop there! The best fun comes from team work.. Hence a great use in non-competitive co-operative games and team building activities.
Many hands make light work!
As with small gym balls found in gyms all over then world, the mega balls lend themselves to therapeutic use not only in the human world but also in the animal world, especially in the horse world!
Check out this YouTube horse meets mega ball video.
What’s the Risk with MegaBalls?
All events being different we / you have to dynamically assess the situation.
Climbing on them does mean you can fall off them!
(In fact the manufacturer doesn’t recommend climbing on them as you can fall of them…but hey! risk assess and do it carefully)
You don’t want any unsuspecting persons to be literally bowled over! (They will be when they see them!)
It’s up to the players, parents, children and supervisors to gauge the correct level of excitement and that depends on the aims and objectives as well as the location and abilities.
Avoid sharp objects!
Help each other!
Don’t always use them fully inflated.
I have to say; The increased fun is reflected in the initial cost of the things!
They really are not cheap toys.. they are EXPENSIVE! So don’t ever dare to burst them!
Can’t we just have some fun for once?
They make the kids go WOW!
They make the adults go WHAT THE?
They are simply jaw dropping huge GIANT MEGABALLS of bounce!
Take some photos!
Make some space, find a field, have a GIANT MEGABALL party!
