“A new and amazing experience”
Reviewed March 19, 2014

An operation run by a single man, lack of facilities but the experience of bouncing down that hill was an amazing new experience for us. I've got to admit that i was pretty nervous but as we set off my friend and i were laughing and had a great time.

“Disappointed”
Reviewed September 30, 2013

1 man band, didnt look professional, had a near 2 hour drive, no facilities, he turned up late, when we rang he was still in bed. Ball is blown up with a leaf blower??!

I share the same review as below, laughter at first then screams of pain as the ball was not inflated and you could hear the hiss of it rapidly going down too, when we got near the bottom our heads and necks were bouncing on the ground and I was actually really frightened. Neck is still sore day after. I asked him about this and he said its the lightest person that gets it....
The same group after us experienced the same also. It was also over really quickly, should consider giving 2 goes for the price you pay.

“Bouncing down in a hill in a Giant Hamster Ball!!”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

The longest zorb run in Europe, Dave really has a good track set up. I was really nervous but the harness was strong and as there are 2 of you in the zorb you can share the experience of rolling round and round with your buddy.

Apparently no-one has thrown up in the zorb yet but I came really close! We all had a fab time once we'd sussed out where the turning was as not very well signposted and you wonder if the dirt track is the right way - but it is! Enjoy!!

“massive dissapointment”
Reviewed August 19, 2013

to book a session on plaent zorb took about 3 weeks using a wowcher code- followed the instructions of emailing the code and they day you would like and the managed replied the follwoing week saying he has over 100 emails and cant tell us yet, spoke on the phone and it goes to answerphone most the time but when we did get through he said he will let us know over the weekend a time, he didnt let us know... came to the day before we got a time.
when we arrived we werent sure if we were there- no sign saying plaent zorb, no buildings, no toilet just a man on a hill with a zorbing ball, a rack of eggs and a saucepan and gas stove he uses to cook them.
the hydrobal was broke so only had the zorb ball...which got flat about half way down and so it became laughter for the first half followed by screams of pain when your head or back was hitting the ground for the second half.

find a different zorbing centre if you want to go zorbing, would not recommend this to anyone.
