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.
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 [+]
||Sp. "Hwe don't-a need no steenkin' 'elmets !"
||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?
||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.
