This Weekend: Zorbing

View Comments (


    It's a craze that is making many dizzy with delight, and now zorbing has come to Connecticut.

    What is zorbing?

    Participants are strapped inside a 12-foot plastic sphere and pushed down a ski slope, or other large hill.  The ride only lasts about 30 seconds, but it is a doozy.

    At Woodbury Ski Area, there are some rules to zorbing. You must be at least 9-years-old, can't weigh more than 220 pounds and be in good health to zorb.

    Feel like a good scream? Try out Zorbing down a ski slope in Woodbury.

    If zorbing isn't your thing, Woodbury Ski Area has also added summer tubing.  There are two slopes made of silicon turf, and a variety of tubes to allow you to tailor how fast or slow you want to go.
