How much do you know about the zorbing? Or someone may call this as the inflatable hamster ball or inflatable zorb ball!


Pretty much rolling down a hill inside a special transparent ball, that is generally made out of PVC or TPU. These giant inflatable balls are called Zorbs  and are of different types. Some have harnesses and straps to hold the rider in position. Others allow the rider to walk freely inside, or to be tossed around by the ball motion. Sometimes people would pour water inside, and the rider just slides around freely while the inflatable ball rolls downhill. This is called hydrozorbing . In most cases Zorbing is done on a gentle slope for maximum fun. However, it can also be performed on a level area, allowing for more orb control by the rider.

Sometimes, if there are no slopes around, different wooden, metal or inflatable ramps are used. You can also do it on water. This is called water walking or Aquazorbing. Many theme parks across the US, UK, Europe, Japan and New Zealand (where the trend originated) feature this type of entertainment. In addition to this, there are other sub-branches such as Bubble Football/Soccer, Body Zorbing and Snow Bowling. All of these are presented in detail in the other sections of the site.

Why It Is Awesome


There is no denying this is an increasingly popular sport. Rolling down on a hill while strapped inside a giant inflatable ball, you can reach speeds of more than 30 miles per hour. The current record holder has topped his downhill speed at 32 miles per hour (52 km per hour). Now that is pure adrenaline! It’s like going on a roller coaster ride, but a little more insane. So, for extreme sports enthusiasts or people who simply enjoy the thrill, zorbing is definitely the thing to try out. As long as it is done in a controlled environment, or a specially designed location, it is safe and super fun!
