Half of you think I’m kidding. The other half of you have either done this already, or seen the pictures on Facebook. All of you now want to try this – don’t deny it.
I have to start this out with “My trapeze friends made me do it”. Only my crazy trapeze friends would think this was a good idea. And, to be fair to them, it TOTALLY WAS! We visited the Roundtop Mountain Adventures for our Zorbing Adventure, which was basically the snow tubing ramp adjusted for our summer fun. The giant orbs were poised at the top of the hill awaiting our participation!
There are two types of Zorbing Balls – the Dry Zorb and the Water Zorb.
The Dry Zorb – Participant is strapped into a chair within the Zorb as a “single” and is rolled down the hill. Survey says: “a bit nauseating.”
The Water Zorb – Participant slithers into a ball filled with two feet of water and two friends and is instructed to ‘body surf’ within the ball as they’re rolled down the hill. Survey says: “that water is glacial!”
Did you do anything crazy this weekend?
