This review describes my Zorbing experience at Amesbury Sports Park, MA.
Zorbing had been on my bucket list for about 5 years. We were finally travelling to a place that had a place to Zorb during the right time of the year -- Amesbury Sports Park, MA!
We turned up for opening time on a weekday in September. After paying $20 and signing the paperwork in the restaurant, you get your ticket to Zorb.
You then stand on a moving uphill walkway for what seems like forever in order to get to the top of the hill. (You're not allowed to 'walk' on the walkway, just stand). At the top, they instruct you to take off your shoes, which you place in a bag (The shoes then magically get transported to the bottom of the hill for when you arrive!).
After strapping you in (around the ankles, over the shoulders and around the middle), they open the gate and the Zorb sets in motion!
You hang on to handles over your head and go over and over approx. 20 times down the grassy track. There was a very 'g-force' feeling, so if you don't like roller-coasters, you probably won't like this!
At the bottom, you get out and put on your shoes and that's it! (You can pay for another turn, but I took a 'We'll see what it's like' approach and once was enough for me!)
I enjoyed it, but I think they could have made SO MUCH MORE out of it as far as marketing opportunities. It would be really great if they sold you a photo, video or T-shirt of the Zorbing experience. It was dead quiet when we went and the whole experience was a bit lack-luster and
anti-climatic.The staff also seemed a bit 'over it'. However, it was a nice facility and I felt safe during the experience.
