The Jungle NI in Moneymore has quickly become one of Ireland’s top outdoor entertainment facilities. Their specialty is Zorbing, pragmatically described as climbing into a giant inflatable PVC ball and bouncing down a hill – it’s certainly an adrenaline rush you’ll never forget.

Feel you’re knees wobble and watch your knuckles go white as you negotiate your way through 40 elements including zip lines, bridges, scramble nets, tunnels, tarzan swings, and a death defying powerfan descent; the course is sure to bring out the Tarzan or Jane in you!!
