The History And Guinness World Records Of Zorbing

If you has kept a pet hamster, you will know what an energetic little animal it can be. You need to equip the hamster cage with hamster running wheel or hamster ball for the hamster to run. If you have wondered how it feels to be inside the hamster ball, you cannot miss zorbing.

 

The history of zorbing

Zorbing was created by the French engineer Gilles Ebersolt. He invented such a transparent plastic zorb ball In 1973 and patented it. This kind of human hamster ball was dedicated for rolling down hill at first. In 1985, when there were still a handful of zorbing enthusiasts using 6-meter-diameter spheres, Gilles Ebersolt demonstrated how extreme a plastic sphere for zorbing might be to roll down a 10-meter waterfall and then down Mount Fujiama in Japan and the ball is intact.

 

Fun facts about zorbing

Zorbing have been used as a symbol for the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia. According to Sochi 2014 Organizing Committee Chairman Dmitry Chernyshenko, the transparency of zorb balls also reflects the open, accessible and inclusive environment of society that Sochi 2014 is helping to create.

 

What’s more, the Guinness World Records recognized two sphere records set in 2006 for two consecutive days. The first is the longest spherical ride by Steve Camp, who covered 570 meters. The second is the fastest spherical ride held by Keith Kolver, who reached a speed at 52 kilometers per hour. There is also a record about fastest 100 meters in a zorb ball held by Andrew Flintoff, who finished it in 26.59 seconds and broke records as part of his 12 world records in 12 hours for BBC Sport Relief. Nowadays, some extreme sports lovers even try to use the zorb ball to cross the ocean, but that sounds too crazy and dangerous. I don’t recommend doing so even if you are well equipped and have a team to make sure your safety.

 

If you think rolling downhill inside such a zorb ball is too dangerous for you, there are also some options like bubble soccer you can have fun with your friends in a much safer way.
