Zorbing is a relatively recent sport. One or more participants (so-called “zorbonauts”) enter a large double-walled sphere of transparent pliable plastic (“zorb”) and either roll on their own by moving about inside of the zorb on a flat surface or let the zorb roll down an incline. Zorbing is also called globe-riding, sphering or orbing.
Here are two zorbonauts in training near the Adventure Pier off the Boardwalk in Wildwood, NJ.
Zorbonauts? How funny, I have never heard of this expression but I have seen these before I think it was in Munich some time ago but I remember now that they did this in the water. I kind of think it would make me claustrophobic but it definitely looks like it is fun to roll around. Ahh, the fun industry never sleeps to bring out new things :-)
