Zorb balls, also known as human hamster balls or inflatable spheres, are large inflatable balls typically made of transparent plastic. They are designed for recreational activities and are often used on land or water surfaces. The concept of zorbing originated in New Zealand in the 1990s and has since gained popularity worldwide.

Zorb balls consist of two layers of flexible plastic with a cushion of air in between, creating a protective barrier for the person inside. The inner chamber where the person stands or sits is securely harnessed to prevent them from falling or getting injured while inside the ball. Some zorb balls are transparent, allowing for a better view, while others are opaque.

There are two main types of zorbing experiences:

1 Harness Zorbing: In this type, the person is strapped inside the zorb ball and rolls down a slope or a designated track. The ball gathers momentum and rolls, allowing the person to experience the sensation of being inside a rotating sphere.

2 Water Zorbing: Water zorbing involves zorb balls floating on water. The person enters the zorb ball, which is then placed on a body of water such as a pool or a lake. The water inside the ball adds an extra layer of excitement as the person can walk, run, or tumble on the water surface while inside the ball.

Zorbing provides a thrilling and unique experience, combining elements of adventure, amusement, and physical activity. It has become a popular attraction in adventure parks, amusement parks, and recreational facilities around the world. However, due to the nature of the activity, safety precautions and guidelines are essential to ensure a safe and enjoyable experience for participants.
