With my daughter turning 13 we wanted to treat her to something really fun for her birthday. She'd always wanted to try Zorbing, so we decided a Zorbing experience was the perfect way to celebrate her becoming a teenager.
Before I booked anything I looked into all the different types of Zorbing, but eventually I decided a traditional harness Zorbing experience would be the most fun. There was one major draw back though, we needed two people to take part so that the ball was balanced, which meant either me or my husband would have to take part too. There was no way I was getting in a Zorb ball, so my husband got roped in whether he liked it or not! As it turned out he was really excited and the two of them couldn't wait to try Zorbing.
Their Zorbing experience came around really quickly, so before we knew it we were all at the site ready for the fun to start. The two of them got signed in straight away, and once they'd been given a short briefing from one of the instructors it was time to squeeze into the Zorb ball. Even though the track was a lot steeper than I'd imagined they both seemed really excited, and once they were secured in their harnesses they were ready to get the ball rolling.
Even though I wasn't taking part I was in charge of getting some photos, so I couldn't wait to see them set off. I'd booked two rolls for them, so for the first I stayed at the top to see them off, and for the second I waited at the bottom. Once they'd set off the ball picked up some serious speed, and as they hurtled down the track I could see them bumping and bouncing all the way.
When the ball eventually came to a stand still at the bottom of the hill the two of them were in absolute stitches! They absolutely loved their Zorbing experience, and if it's half as much fun as it looked I'll definitely be giving it a try some time soon!
