Zorbing is a recreational sport which is performed in a big inflated transparent ball. It is carried out in slight hilly slopes or even an artificially made surface. The participants get inside the ball and it is sealed. The sphere rolls down for a distance giving an adrenaline pumping experience. It is a fun sport which has become popular in India during the recent years. Two or three riders can get in the inflated ball and perform the sport together.
