Zorbing is an activity in which a person goes down a hill in a big transparent globe. You have the option to go down either wet or dry or you can do both if you really feel like it. If you choose the dry option, you are strapped into a chair and rolled down the hill. If you choose the wet option, they throw a couple of buckets of water in and you stand inside and hope not to fall down. The one I did gave you the ability that if you stayed on your feet the whole way down they would give the dry option for free. Staying on your feet isn't that easy. Once you fall it feels like you are in a washing machine, you just slide all over the place. It is a fun experience especially since you can only do it in New Zealand and in the Gold Coast of Australia. But it is rather pricy compared to the amount of time that you are actually going down the hill. It feels like once you are in, it is over in no time, but with that said I was glad to do it just for the experience alone.
Going down the hill.

It isn't that dangerous really. If you don't get strapped in and go dry than you can get skin burn but that is why they add the water.
