Today I did one of those “extreme” sports New Zealand is known for. I took a ride on a Zorb. A Zorb is a large inflatable plastic ball that you ride down a hill in, no harness or anything. It was a little scary and tons of fun. I chose to ride the “Zydro”, where they throw a bucket of water into the Zorb with you, so you get splashed constantly on the way down.
Apparently they also offer Zorb rides in Pigeon Forge, TN, so the next time you’re in the Smokies (or Rotorua) I recommend giving this a shot.
