Players slip inside inflatable bubbles for Knockerball at Cranmore Mountain. 

NORTH CONWAY — Picture a game of soccer, only the players each are inside a backpack-like bubble, and collisions on the field tend to be a lot funnier.

Having debuted at Cranmore Mountain last year, Knockerball — soccer bouts with an inflatable twist — will take place on the north slope in an 80-foot by 40-foot inflatable arena.

Guests 48 inches and taller are invited to slip into knockerballs, which have inner handles and adjustable shoulder straps.

“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,” according to Cranmore’s activity description.

Knockerball will be offered daily at the resort this summer. The attraction will also be included with the purchase of a Mountain Adventure Park ($32-$42) or All Day Play ($42-$74) ticket.

Cranmore Mountain opens for its eighth summer season on Saturday. Its Mountain Adventure and Aerial Adventure parks feature rides and activities for all ages, including the Mountain Coaster, tubing, a giant swing, the Soaring Eagle zipline, a Bungy trampoline and forest rope courses.

Visit or call call 800-SUN-N-SKI for details. The parks will be open weekends through June 9 and then daily. ..June 16 through Labor Day.
