Zorbing for English Adrenaline Junkies

Ever thought of forgetting about all your worries and just rolling down a hill? Zorbing has gained popularity in the recent years—you basically get into a transparent plastic orb and roll down a gentle slope. But even the gentlest of activities can result in a rush of adrenaline through your body. That tingling feeling in your spine as your head, heart, and chest feel like it’s contracting. That increased heartbeat as the blood blasts through your veins. It becomes an experience that is embedded into our temporal lobes—a moment we can’t forget.

Amongst England’s boating, cycling, skating, and rock climbing activities, you’ll find zorbing slopes spread throughout the adventure-craving country. Harness zorbing is for two people on a dry slope. Hydro zorbing is for one or two people accompanied with litres of water downhill while slipping and sliding. Here are a few exciting zorbing slopes you’ll find in England.
