It takes, however, this entertainment is only a few minutes and costs $ 15 (in Vancouver, so much is only one ticket to the tulip field), but the queue has to stand for hours. Moreover, a couple of hours in the queue still do not guarantee skating on the ball — after all, security is very much dependent on weather conditions.

You need to sit in the basket over the side, which is almost at chest level. But when it is already inside — it is cramped, but very warm.

Of course, in addition to the balls there is still something to do — for example, ride in barrels. Fun and very dusty.
