ZORB!by Adam & Lara on 04/17/10
Lara and I went Zorbing and it was, for lack of a better word beginning with "zorb," zorbtastic. For those of you not familiar with the zany world of Zorbing, let us break it down for you. You roll down a hill in a giant inflated plastic ball that contains you and roughly 10 gallons of water and 1 million bajillion gallons of fun! And from the smell of it, it probably also contains trace amounts of pee.
You start all the way up high...
And then you roll topsy-turvy all the way down the hill...
And then when you get to the bottom they try to charge you $20 for a CD full of pictures of you Zorbing. We refused, and instead just took the above pictures of the people that went after us.
The best part is the entry/exit process. There is a zippered flap in the ball that covers a hole about the size of a beach ball. To get in they open the flap and you have to run and dive in. To get out they reopen the flap and you squeeze yourself through until your body flops out onto the wet grass, just like childbirth (especially for Adam, who was crying hysterically when he emerged from the Zorb).
Besides the 30 seconds of Zorbing that we did, the best part of the experience was the signage:
Like astronauts, the first Zorbonauts were also monkeys.
Not listed here, the Zappa Zorb package comes with a huge bag of mushrooms and a complimentary keychain.
It's called Zorb by the way.
