Hamster Water Balls at Newport on the Levee

Hamster Water Balls

Outside Riverwalk Level

Hamster balls...but for humans!

Opens on May 1, 2017!

Hamster Water Balls enable you to walk or float on water. You get inside the 6.5 foot diameter ball, the operator fills it up with air, they zip it up and you’re ready to go. You can walk, jump, roll and float on water in the large, shallow water “pond". 

Walking and controlling the water ball is challenging, and definitely a good workout. Of course, balancing is tricky, but falls are painless as you are landing on water!

Cost: $8.00 
Ages 3 and up
