Has anyone tried Zorb?

It seems like it would be fun! Has any of you done it or know someone who's done it? Do you just get in a ball and roll downhill?

There are a couple people here who have and loved it. Do a search in the forums for the threads in case they do not see your post.

In my younger days I would have loved it!

I really want to try it but am scared my motion sickness issues might be a problem. I would love to hear from someone who has done it, too. I will be up there in a week.

Thanks for the link. That looks like SO MUCH FUN! I just know I would get motion sickness though. IT sucks. I never got it until I hit my early 20's. I would totally do it if it weren't for that.

Zorbing is awesome! I highly recommend it. It may be a little expensive, but I think it is worth it for such a unique experience. I would advise trying the wet Zorb (Zydro) on the zig-zag course. My husband loved it, and it looked like a blast! Here is a link to my review of Zorb. It has more info on the types of rides and the requirements for each one.

Hope this helps!

It is not illegal to swim with the dolphins. There are many companies that offer their services for this as an attraction for the particular area. I have several family members who have done this. They say it was a great experience and they made some unforgetable memories. For more information you could go to www.google.com and type in swimming with the dolphins.

It is illegal to feed or harass marine mammals, but swimming with dolphins is not. If it were, then thousands of companies would be out of business. These companies are bound by the laws of The Marine Mammal Protection Act of 1972, and subsequent amendments, and if they fail to adhere to these terms, they will be severely penalized.

My dolphin excursion was with a company who is well established and has a great reputation. I thoroghly enjoyed my time with the dolphins, and I cannot wait to go back and do it again. Dolphins are amazing creatures, and I am very thankful to have had the opportunity to see them in their natural habitat.

By the way, I don't appreciate you implying that I broke the law on this public forum. If you had a question, you could have either contacted me personally via PM, or you looked it up for yourself.

I think you owe ffg an apology for even thinking that something she did was illegal. Next time, take the time to research and get the facts on something before you come on a public fourm and say you're confused about something as serious as this.

Knowledge obliterates confusion.
