The Rather Odd Concept With Zorb Ball

You've probably never heard of the word zorbing before. It is, after all, a rather odd concept. But there's no denying that it's fun and one of the most up-and-coming outdoor fun sports on the scene.

Zorbing is nothing more than rolling down a hill in a large plastic hamster ball

Yes, a huge inflatable ball is blown up, a person climbs in and the zorb ball is pushed down the hill. Despite it being one of the strangest extreme sports, rollerblading is actually very simple. Climb into a large inflatable ball and roll down a hill. If this sounds weird, you're right. If it sounds fun, you're definitely right.

The plastic ball is double-layered, so the rider (sometimes wearing a harness, sometimes not) bounces around in it, getting the thrill of speed but avoiding the full impact of repeatedly hitting the ground.

Zorbing has been around since the mid 1990s when David and Andrew Akers came up with the idea in Rotorua, New Zealand. Since then, they have expanded globally, opening branches in seven countries, including the USA. They have, of course, generated a lot of competition with names such as globe-riding, sphering, orbing and the more generic Hill-rolling.

As for the question of whether it's really fun if you're over 20, Zorbing is more limited by novelty than by Zorber’s age (although I think my brother would enjoy it more than my grandmother). The first few times, it's bound to be great fun, but after a point, rolling down the hill is a sure way to lose interest.


Zorbing, on the other hand, is more of a one-off experience than a hobby for you, much like zip lining. But the best zip lines are set in exotic locations and combine the thrill of speed with gorgeous panoramic views. Perhaps zorbing from Kameymall could go this way: imagine bouncing down Mount Kilimanjaro.
