I have a spot of adult-only fun for you to get stuck in to!
There are only a few rules;
1. You have to be a self confessed baller.
And here are the rest:
If you think you can stick to those, whip off your shoes baby!
Doesn’t that look tempting?
It’s all yours.
Don’t be shy, go for a good ol’ leap!
But look out, it might be deeper than you think!
Yep, it’s a gallery sized, grown up, gloriously white, ball pit.
For all your frolicking needs!
“JUMP IN!” is an interactive art installation “that promotes the transformative power of play.”
It’s all about having fun and bringing out your childlike, creative side.
Something we had absolutely no problem getting on board with!
Commissioned by founding partner of Pearlfisher, Karen Welman.
There are over 80,000 balls and anyone is welcome to play with them.
What are you waiting for?
(Don’t actually dive, you’ll break something. I ended up with a pack of frozen peas resting on my knee for the rest of the evening.
…Totally worth it.)
But you can swim, crawl and tunnel your way around the space.
Or just lay back and enjoy the feeling, it’s surprisingly relaxing!
Especially if you go in the evening when they turn the lights out.
The more you wriggle around, the more balls will start to light up and glow.
Gotta catch ’em all!
Play until you’re exhausted! It’s better than any gym workout!
There’s no entrance fee, but everyone who visits is encouraged to donate to Right To Play.
“Right To Play uses the power of sport and play to transform the lives of over one million children every week across Latin America, Africa and Asia. They work in some of the most disadvantaged communities to provide an education, teach vital health skills and promote peaceful communities.”
So you can feel good while having your fun!
As far as I’m concerned it’s the best pop up of the year.
