Zorbing is the recreation or sport of rolling downhill inside an orb, generally made of transparent plastic. Zorbing is generally performed on a gentle slope, but can also be done on a level surface in parks & clubs, permitting more rider control. In the absence of hills some operators have constructed inflatable, wooden or metal ramps. Due to the buoyant nature of the orbs, Zorbing can also be carried out on water, provided the orb is inflated properly and sealed once the rider is inside. 'Water walking' using such orbs has become popular in theme parks. There are two types of orbs, harnessed and non-harnessed. Non-harness orbs carry up to three riders, while the harness orbs are constructed for one to two riders. Double-harness spheres have different slope requirements, and must only be operated in specific locations.
Zorbing ball is a double-sectioned sphere, wherein one ball is placed inside the other. Both the balls are separated by a layer of air between them. The ride is extremely safe as the rider is harnessed inside the inner ball and all the violent bouncing is absorbed by the bigger ball outside. As the ball starts to roll, the rider tumbles and spins around, enjoying the revolving view outside. A fun-filled experience, rides in zorbing balls are becoming increasingly popular among all age groups.
Water zorbing is a soft adventure activity that involves rolling down a water body such as a lake or a pool. It is also great for playing water sports with a twist as the rider in the zorb is always spinning around. Safe for all age groups, it is much liked as one gets to revolve on top of a water body.
Similar to zorbing, the only difference in a water zorb is that it has only one layer and is inflated once the rider is inside.
Body Zorb extremely enjoyable, this activity involves sliding a body zorb over your head and letting go. A number of games, such as rolling, rolling racing, bumper games, etc. can be played safely wearing the bumper ball. With an opening over the head, enough air is ensured for comfortable breathing. Both children and adults can keep innovating and play newer games individually as well as in a group.
Also called Bumping ball, inflatable bumper ball, etc. these are available in different sizes to suit various body types.
