Zorbing

Zorbing

Feel the adrenaline rush as you roll down a hill inside a giant PVC ball at speeds of up to 30mph. Zorbing is one of the most exhilarating extreme sports in the world. Originating in New Zealand this activity has now arrived in Northern Ireland.

There are two adrenaline-packed rides to choose from:

Hydro Zorbing:
The hydro ride has been described as an invigorating combination of a water chute and a rollercoaster! The ball is filled with about 10 gallons of water and up to 3 riders can float unharnessed down the hill while the ball spins, bounces and rolls.

Harnessed Zorbing:
Harnessed Zorbing is the more daring of the two! Riders are strapped in at the shoulders, hips and feet while the ball revolves down the hill, gaining speed all the way. Generally two people ride the harnessed sphere at a time to balance weight, creating a smoother, faster ride! This is one adrenaline rush you’ll never forget!!

How to get started
The age limit for Zorbing is currently set at 12 years old. Parental consent is required for participants under the age of 16 years old.
Height and weight restrictions also apply;

Weight:
Hydro Zorbing:
Single person, max weight = 130 kg (20.5 stone)
Up to three people, max weight = 250 kg (39 stone)

Harnessed Zorbing:
Combined weight of both riders must not exceed 180kg (28 stone)

Is it easy?
Basically you climb into a giant rubber ball and roll down a hillside!

Is it expensive?
Hydro/Harnessed Zorbing costs £15 per person for the first roll and £10 for every roll thereafter.
It is not necessary to purchase any specialised equipment before going Zorbing. For those who are attempting Harnessed Zorbing it is recommended that participants wear clothing that will cover their shoulders and neck.

Please note customers who wish to go hydro Zorbing are advised to bring a spare set of clothes and a towel as you will get a little wet!
