As we all know, New Zealand is known as a tourist paradise, one of the reasons is that you can choose many exciting activities here. In fact, we have a great track record for inventing and introducing all kinds of these activities to the world. Jet boating, bungy jumping, canyon swings, and so on.
In recent years, more and more unknown words that we hear are “zorbing”, “zorb ball”. What is this unknown thing, and what is its use?
We’re going to talk about today is zorbing one of the most famous and popular sports activities in New Zealand.
Perhaps someone asks a question like this: what is zorbing, exactly? Let’s give the answer, it is a giant, transparent, and inflatable circle that you can get inside and use to ride down a hill, walk on water, or even play games with others on flat ground.
If you’re in an area with mostly flat land, some zorb ball courses may even build a smaller, rollercoaster-like track for you to ride down.
The history of zorbing
Zorbing was created by two kiwis, Andrew Akers and Dwane van der Sluis, in 1994, who wanted to create a new “off the wall” attraction. They certainly achieved that and more with zorbing which is also now found across the world in countries like America, Canada, Japan, and Australia.
Nothing quite beats trying it at the original place of its birth (in our humble opinion) which is why it’s one of the most popular attractions in Rotorua.
How long will zorbing last?
Zorbing in Rotorua can last up to 40 seconds or more, how long it will last depends on the track you choose and the trajectory your zorb ball will go. This might not sound like much but in the context of adrenaline activities (where bungy jumping lasts a few seconds and skydiving lasts a few more), it’s actually quite long.
On your way down you’ll also reach speeds of up to 50 km/h while rotating 360° inside the zorb ball trying your best to keep your mind clear without screaming too much.
Is zorbing safe?
Thanks to thorough testing and development by its inventors, zorbing has a great record of safety. There are enough cushions inside the zorb ball to help you when a fall accidentally happens to you.
