What You'll Get
The enactment of the law of gravity gifted ancient thrill-seekers many new opportunities, including jumping, skydiving, and extreme bouncy balling. Uphold laws of yore with today's Groupon: for $24, you get a globe ride at Zorb Smoky Mountains in Pigeon Forge (up to a $48.95 value).
Zorb Smoky Mountains boasts the only hot spot in the United States for Zorb globe riding—rolling down a hill inside an inflated globe. At the base of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Zorb wranglers help the adventurous into the cushy confines of a Zorb globe, and prepare them for the upcoming tumble, feeling of weightlessness, and SAT flashbacks inherent of the ride. The double-hulled globe protects riders from bumps and bruises with a pocket of air between the inner and outer spheres. Choose from either the Zorbit ride, in which the rider is harnessed in for a breathtaking head-over-heels jaunt ($48.95 including tax), or the wet 'n' wild unharnessed Zydro, where the rider shares the sphere with a splash of water, creating an exciting human-flavored kool-aid as they descend the slope ($41.16 including tax).
Zorb Smoky Mountains photographs riders, making photo CDs available for purchase after the experience, so every grin can be preserved for photo slide shows at your wedding or clown-college graduation. If riding the Zydro, patrons should bring swimwear for the ride or a dry change of clothes.

About Zorb Smoky Mountains
Zorb Smoky Mountains holds the distinction of being the only Zorb site in the country. Born in New Zealand, Zorb globe riding is a sport that involves an inflatable globe and downhill trips, which may cause riders to roll so fast they think they are tearing a hole in the time-space continuum. The hills themselves are specially designed for globe riding and feature both straight and zigzagged trails.
