When an adult ball pit invites you to “swim across to our prosecco bars” - let’s just say, you accept.
Shrug off the stresses of adult life and dive, quite literally, head first into the fun, at an adult ball pit that’s making its way across the UK.
We’ll admit, we’ve heard of adult ball pools before. Various installations and pop-ups have attempted to seduce us with the promise of swimming among hundreds of multi-coloured balls, while getting a serious cases of the giggles with our equally nostalgia-seeking mates.
But Prosecco and Balls, (as the name suggests) is a unique, new offering that understands ball pool antics are inevitably more fun when combined with bubbles. In fact, the ball pool has promised to boldly go where no ball pool has ever gone before and invites everyone joining the frolics to “swim across to our prosecco bars” and enjoy prosecco on draught and fizz-based cocktails.
The aptly named event will be carting not just 250,000 balls around the country, but also 1000 Inflatables to really ramp up the tomfoolery. So, if you didn’t manage to bag yourself an Insta-worthy snap of you on a flamingo inflatable in the summer, it looks like you could be getting another chance.
As if all that wasn’t enough, the creators of the event have fulfilled yet another aspect of our nostalgic dreams by throwing ice lollies into the mix. But instead of slurping on a Calypso, it’ll be more prosecco for you, because these icy treats are formed from fizz. Delicious.
Prosecco and Balls will be touring the UK from 17 November, with the event’s first stop being Belfast, Ireland. From there it will be hitting most big cities including Liverpool, Aberdeen, Brighton and Bristol (and many more) with dates running until the end of April.
So far tickets have been released for a spattering of dates, but most cities are still waiting on venue confirmation. Tickets for each city will be released in three waves and range from £12.90 to £16.90 depending on how early you purchase them.
Ball pools may remind you of the days gone by, but Balls and Prosecco is certainly no child’s play. Shenanigans don’t kick off until 10pm and will be raging on until the wee hours of the morning (namely 2.30am).
If your pals are nostalgia fiends, with a penchant for all things 90s (Troll Dolls are still cool, right?) we can bet your bottom dollar they’ll love this.
