Here in Rotorua, New Zealand, we find the birthplace of possibly the most ridiculous pastime ever – Zorbing. Invented here in 1967, Zorbing involves nothing more than climbing into a giant PVC sphere and being chucked down a hill.
Yes, that’s it. Sounds cool huh?
In our thumbnail you can see several zorbuses (or should that be zorbii?) gathered at the top of the hill, and there also seems to one being hoisted back to the top using the, er… zorb-lift, just like in this image.
More on Zorbing and links to where you can try it at Wikipedia
