Indoor Hill-Rolling for Adults

Clean, safe, fun and wholesome.

Tumbling sideways down hillsides is one of the greatest joys of childhood. Alas, this diversion is lost upon reaching adulthood due to concerns such as keeping yourself clean and avoiding boo-boos.

Here at High Rollers, we have several rockless, mudless padded turf-covered slopes at varying levels of steepness. After purchasing your ticket, guests are free to don helmets, climb up, and gleefully roll down any of our hills while forgetting the problems of day-to-day life. But remember: no pushing or bullying of other guests will be tolerated, and we will call your mother and tell on you if we catch you doing so.

Cheese Rolling http://www.cheese-r...ng.co.uk/index1.htm
The 2010 annual Cheese Rolling event was cancelled. This idea could offer it a new home. [Wrongfellow, Nov 26 2010]

       Helmets? We don't need no stinking helmets!

       Ohh, I was thinking this would be a sort of grassy treadmill for rolling down that you put in your house. I like this too, though. [+]

       Helmets would increase the danger of rotational brain injury [+]

       Ah, thanks. I had no idea. I knew about it from Blazing Saddles (about my least favourite Mel Brooks film — others are so much better), but didn’t know what that in turn referenced.   

       That’d be a good name for a band “The Stinking Badgers”.

       Yeah, well, some you win, some you lose.

       could it be like those artificial rock climbing walls where it's a conveyor belt so you can roll forever at different inclines and speeds?
metarinka, Nov 29 2010
  

       Sure. If the speed was gradually raised after you started rolling, you could actually roll back uphill to the top and be on your way.
