Seek thrills with today's Groupon: for $24, you get a globe ride at Zorb Smoky Mountains in Pigeon Forge (up to a $48.95 value including tax).
Zorb Smoky Mountains boasts the only hot spot in the United States for Zorbing—rolling down a hill inside an inflated globe. At the base of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Zorb masters help the adventurous into the cushy confines of a Zorb globe and prepare them for the upcoming tumble. The double-hulled ball protects riders from bumps and bruises with a pocket of air between the inner and outer spheres.
Choose between the Zorbit ride, in which the rider is harnessed in for a breathtaking head-over-heels jaunt (a $48.95 value including tax), or the wet 'n' wild unharnessed Zydro, in which the rider shares the sphere with a splash of water while descending the slope (a $41.16 value including tax). Zorb Smoky Mountains photographs riders at their request, making photo CDs available for purchase after the experience. If riding the Zydro, patrons should bring swimwear for the ride or a dry change of clothes.

The hills themselves are specially designed for globe riding and feature both straight and zigzagged trails.
