I wanted to treat my sister to something completely different for her birthday this year. She’s just turned 29, so is still a year away from the biggest birthday celebrations. But I still wanted to push the boat out and get her a gift that she would never forget; I knew that she’d be tired of getting the same old presents from friends and family, so I really wanted to choose her something that stood out.
I started looking online for weird and wonderful birthday presents to treat her to, but I didn’t find anything that was too unique. I knew she was an adrenaline junkie and loved taking part in extreme sports, but I couldn’t think of anything that she hasn’t already taken part in- and I also was struggling to find any extreme sports locations near our home town. But that didn’t stop my searching, as I knew I was going to find the perfect present sooner or later.
It was only moments later when I stumbled upon the Roll Mania website. I had read about zorbing before and always thought it sounded like fun- and I definitely knew that my sister hadn’t taken part in any zorb activities, as she can never stop talking about the extreme sports she does take part in! I decided that I was going to treat her to a day at a nearby zorb centre as a birthday treat and that I would tag along for the ride. It had been ages since we had any quality time together as sisters, so this would be the perfect chance for us to finally get another day out with each other.
I immediately got onto the Roll Mania website and decided to book a day at one of the venues for the both of us. When I got to the site, I didn’t know which zorbing experience to choose; did I want to go for classic harness zorbing, or the wet and wild Aqua zorbing? As my sister loved only the most adrenaline fuelled activities, I opted to book us both in for an aqua zorbing experience. I was a bit nervous at first, but you only live once and I wanted the most exciting day in the bubble imaginable!
When her birthday arrived, my sister was over the moon to find out that I’d booked for us to visit a Roll Mania location. She’d never been zorbing before and when she found out it was the more extreme aqua zorbing experience, she couldn’t wait! When the big day arrived for us to head on over to the site, I could see how excited she was. She looked like a child on Christmas morning, eager to get straight to the action.
When we got to the site, the friendly staff helped us get the most out of our experience. I never thought I could have so much fun in freezing water, but the two of us both loved the experience. I have never felt an adrenaline rush quite like this before- and I’m now eager to try this again, as well as see all the other different zorbing styles. I’ll be booking with Roll Mania again, as we both want to see what harness zorbing is like!
