339--New Zealand: How to become a Zorbonaut
@ CherieSpotting     Jan 26 2006 - 12:47 PST
cherie writes: What's a zorb? It's a plastic ball that you get zipped into. If you opt for the hydro-zorb, you get a bucket of complimentary water to slosh around with you inside.

But there are many ways to zorb. You can zorb solo or with up to two friends. You can zorb zig-zag or straight. And you can zorb wet or dry! I did a wet solo zig-zag!

My Canadian friends Colin, Sarah and Crystal joined me in the quest to get wet and dizzy. We did the ZORB at the Agrodome in Rotorua, New Zealand. Here are our Zorb photos.
