Cranmore Mountain Resort

Knockerball

A Knockerball is an inflatable ball with inner handles and adjustable shoulder straps, which is worn like a backpack.  The ball is designed with multiple sheets of a higher grade durable TPU plastic and tension cups and cords, which allows participants to knock each other around without feeling trauma from the blow.  Knockerball or “bubble soccer” has been gaining traction in Europe, Australia, Japan and elsewhere. 

  • KnockerBall is valid with the purchase of a $13 Cranmore single ride ticket, or $65 6-pack of transferable tickets.  
  • A $10 upgrade can be purchased as an add-on to a Mountain Adventure Park, Aerial Adventure Park, Combo ticket or Summer Season Pass.  Tickets can be purchased at Cranmore’s Ticket Office. 
  • Games are supervised and monitored at all times by trained staff to ensure safety of participants.  Closed toed shoes are required.
