Established in 2012, Zorbing at Rollerball is located on the hills overlooking Kalim Beach with a 190-metre track for families to enjoy the unique outdoor activity.
For those new to the concept, zorbing requires participants to climb into a large, clear and flexible ball that is filled with roughly 40-litres of water for stability. The ball is then rolled down one of the two paths, providing you with an exhilarating (and wet) ride. You can choose either the flat, straight channel or the one that has twists, turns and bumps for the more adventurous.
Why not bring your loved ones to experience the truly unique sport of zorbing, and the best part is that it doesn’t require any experience to enjoy!
