Want A F*R*E*E ZORB Ride In Pigeon Forge?

The New Zorb in Pigeon Forge has been a true phenomenom! The Zorb has become one of the most popular attractions in Pigeon Forge as well as my most visited blog post ! Just imagine how much fun it would be to watch your friends and family roll down a hill inside a giant plactic ball ??? Well, it is definitely something that you want to video especially the end ;-)

We are offering a F R E E ZORB ride ($45 credit) for a LIMITED Time for any Cabin booking(3 Nt Minimum) with Heavenly Cabins (does not apply to previous bookings) . Zorb rides vary in price from $37 for Zydro ride with up to 2 friends and a little water to $ 44 to the single Zorbit dry ride.. There are group rates and you get a special rate for Zorb-Tri-Riffic for any 3 Zorb rides.

Zorb is a large inflatable plastic ball that measures approximately 11 feet in diameter and weighs almost 200 pounds. Zorb Passengers — or Zorbonauts — fit inside the ball and experience crazy fun as the Zorb rolls several hundred feet down a hill. A cushion of air inside the ball protects the Zorbonauts throughout the trip down. Welcome to extreme sports in Pigeon Forge TN.

Zorb Smoky Mountains offers two types of Zorb rides, both very different. The Harness Zorb ride calls for the passenger to be strapped inside the Zorb with a harness. The result — very often a feeling of weightlessness as the ball rolls downhill. During the Hydro Zorb ride, Zorbonauts remain unharnessed but share the Zorb with a bucket of water, creating a very slippery ride. Up to three people can ride inside a Zorb ball. There is also a Zorb experience expressly designed for children under age six.
