Zorb Smoky Mountains

Yes, that's 3 people inside an 11 feet high Zorb ball!  The Zorb ride is just a totally bizarre and fun adventure experience where you're protected by a massive cushion of air whilst sphering down a hill.

Zorbing is the recreation of rolling downhill in an orb, generally made of transparent plastic. Zorbing is generally performed on a gentle slope, but can also be done on a level surface, permitting more rider control. In the absence of hills some operators have constructed ramps. There are two types of orbs, harnessed and non-harnessed. Non-harness orbs carry up to three riders, while the harness orbs are constructed for one to two riders.  The longer runs are approximately half a mile.
