Zorb Ride - Pigeon Forge Summer 2007

Thrillseekers - here is your chance to be one of the first Zorb riders in the United States... ZORB is Opening Summer 2007 in Pigeon Forge TN! Straight from New Zealand and for the first time in the US you can experience the revolutionary Zorb. Zorb - It's 11 feet high, 11 feet fat, it's round and bouncy. You can jump inside and roll down a 700 foot long hill. It looks really cool & fun but I'm not sure I will be lining up first - lol!

Try the Hydro Zorb for a slippery ride that's like a cross between a waterfall and a roller coaster or the Harnessed Zorb for maximum G-force as you are strapped in rotating head over heels. From what I understand, the Hydro Zorb is a smoother ride as the small amount of water acts as a cushion to hold you upright. The Harnessed Zorb is for those with stronger stomachs !

There have been several national TV commercials sporting the Zorb, one was a Bellsouth USA ad. In 2004, The TV show Amazing Race sent their team and contestants to New Zealand to go Zorbing.
