I know what you’re wondering, what in the world is a ZORB ride? Well, I’d be lying to you if I told you it wasn’t one of the coolest and most unique experiences you’ll find on this side of the Smoky Mountains. When you climb into a ZORB “globe,” you’ll be settling in for an exciting adventure unlike any other.
ZORB Smoky Mountains is establishing a title of a “must see” attraction in Pigeon Forge. Every year, customers return to check out the latest rides and merchandise ZORB offers. The exciting rides are on the top of the list of many Pigeon Forge visitors. This destination is the only ZORB ride in the USA, with other locations in New Zealand, Guam and Jamaica. The tracks featured in the Smoky Mountains location are nearly twice as long as the original tracks formed in New Zealand, making it an unmissable destination.
So what exactly does a ZORB ride consist of? Basically, it takes the childhood thrill of rolling down a tall hill to a new extreme. You will climb into a large, inflatable globe and tackle the grassy slopes of the hill, either wet or dry. You can choose a Zydro ride, and climb into a globe filled with five gallons of water, or choose the Zorbit, for a 100% dry ride. ZORB also offers you a variety of different tracks to roll down, giving you the chance to try a different experience with every ride.
When you choose the Zydro, the wet ride, your track options are expanded by a variety of different paths. Try a straight, zig-zag or zipper track. You will have the option, also, to ride solo or with two or three of your closest friends or family members. On the Zorbit, the dry ride, you will be safely secured in a harness within the globe, you will ride alone, and you only have the straight ride, but your experience is something you will remember forever.
ZORB rides are appropriate for ages eight and up, and parents do not have to worry about safety issues. The rides are guaranteed to give you your adrenaline fix, but they are also guaranteed to provide you with complete safety. The ZORB organization has spent millions of dollars developing their sites across the globe to ensure safety. The rides have been manufactured with nothing but the best materials around, and the tracks have been tested throughout the years to make certain that all of the safety elements have been acquired.
ZORB rides always provide with the best in fun and adventure. They are a unique way to spend your vacation to the Smoky Mountains, and you will always want to come back for more. If you do, you’ll also remember your luxurious stay in any of the nearby hotels. The Red Roof Inn Gatlinburg is located only about three minutes away. If you’re looking for more excitement during your vacation, the Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge areas are filled with unique attractions, including Ripley’s Aquarium of the Smokies, Helicopter Tours of the Smokies and the Dixie Stampede.
