(globe -riding, sphereing, orbing) is the recreation or sport of rolling or running inside a zorb, which is made of transparent plastic. Zorbing is generally performed on a gentle slope, permitting a single rider or to be tossed freely about by the downhill rolling motion. In the absence of hills, an enclosed flat surface area (grass) or indoor gymnasium area can be set up free of sharp obstacles, permitting a single rider more control to walk or run the zorb around. Our Zorbs also have the option of being able to be used with an enclosed harness system when two people are sharing. Both systems are perfect for rainy days and group team building events.
Our Zorb balls or (Human Hamster Balls) are built double- sectioned, with one ball inside the other with air layer between. This acts as a shock absorber for the rider, damping bumps while traveling. Our Zorbs are made of soft flexible plastic as opposed to hard rigid plastic. Our Zorbs are about 10 ft. in diameter, with an inner orb size of about 8 ft. leaving about 2 ft. air cushion around the rider(s). The plastic is about (0.03 in) thick. The inner and outer orbs are connected by numerous os small nylon strings. Two tunnel like entrances allow the rider(s) to enter and exit the Zorb.
