Zorbing (also known as Sphering)
Zorbing, also known as sphering, is generally done on a hillside and involves between one and three people rolling down a hill inside a huge sphere. It resembles being inside a huge washing machine giving you an experience of a lifetime.
There are three main types of zorbing:
Harness Zorbing - The concept is simple, two people wearing full body harnesses are attached inside the Sphere, then rolled down a hill at up to 30mph. Harness Sphereing is not for the faint-hearted and could not be described as a gentle ride!
Aqua Zorbing - You, some close friends and 30-50 litres of water - a recipe for extreme entertainment. If you've ever wondered what it might be like inside a washing machine... well you get the idea.
Eclipse Zorbing - Like the Harness Sphere, you will be wearing a full harness and will be attached inside the ball but in total darkness! You will career down the hill at speeds of up to 30mph.

Sphereing is a weather dependent activity, and therefore most sites operate between April and September however, you can still book your sphering outside of these months to allow yourself time to raise sponsors for the charity!
Before setting out on the day of your sphering, please call the site to check the weather conditions.
