You - also called "Zorbonaut" in the following, will be harnessed into the inside of the Zorb before you take off and roll head over heels down the hill. For only seconds at a time you will see grass and blue skies in turn. The most recent world record is for 58.1 km/h and took place in Brighton, England in Spring 1999 for the Guinness World of Records Show. Only the zorbs here don't roll this fast. Only a select few would dare to get in to "roll" downhill at this speed! Before the start, we still hear a lot of: "aren't we going further?" or "can't we go right to the top?", but then afterwards a unanimous: "you were right, it was far enough!" One thing you shouldn't forget - due to the size of the Zorb - you rotate twice as fast on the inside as it appears from the outside!
And after the ride, the Zorbonauts who arrived safely at the bottom said:

This is how our Hydro Riders felt:
