The Zorb is a mega, blow-up ball made from transparent TPU and 3 metres 20 in diameter. On the inside a second plastic ball, 1 metre 80 in diameter, is joined to the outside ball by a weave of nearly 1000 ropes, as they are used in climbing. The Zorbonaut is protected by the air cushion all-round when it is blown up.
You can access the inner ball via a tunnel. Even an adult can stand comfortably in the Zorb.
Loop the loop, each turn is different, lose the horizon, do a jump and arrive soaking (s)we(a)t - wow! For the spectators it only looks like a short bit of fun. But for the zorbonaut it's an unforgettable experience.
There are many types: Downhill- or Hydrozorbing - different lengths and gradients, types of soil, wind and weather, assisted start, run-out - which all affect the Zorb ride and no ride is like another.
And it all began in 1994 in New Zealand - where else - and it really is an interesting story.
