We’ve answered a few FAQs we often get below:

Will I get cold? No you won’t! We use toasty warm water inside the ZORB balls and have cedar hot tubs to relax in during and after your rides as well as heaters and hairdryers in the changing rooms.

Will I flip upside down? Nope, there is no tumbling or flipping upside down involved –  but you will slip and slide inside around the bottom of the ZORB during your ride much like a giant waterslide.

Will I fit in the ball? If you are under our weight restriction of 125kgs, you will fit inside the ball!
