After more than ten years in the team building industry, ENIGMA ADVENTURES now brings you the newest team building activity - the ORB. The NEW adrenalin sport for South Africa and Africa is called zORBing.
Your question must be: "What is zORBing by the ORB?" zORBing is to roll down a hill or ramp in a ZORB like plastic ball that is transparent. The ORB team uses ZORB like balls for their team building sessions that consist of two balls. One is the outer ball and the other is inside the outer ball. The ZORB like balls that the ORB team uses have the following dimensions of a 3.2m diameter for the outer ball and the inner ball has a 2m diameter. The inner ball is kept in place when the ball is inflated by normal air by hundreds of strings that are attached inside the balls. Entry into the inner ball is done through two holes on the side of the ball. zORBing can be done by being strapped into a harness on the wall of the inside ball or by sliding inside a small amount of water that has been placed inside the ball and sealed with a plastic blow up plug.
From the highest commercially run bungee jump in the world to the white water river rafting on the Zambezi, zORBing has joined these extreme sport legends in Africa and is a great new team building activity for your company to make use of. zORBing might be new to Africa but not to the world where it has been operated with great success and with a great safety record. So with extreme sport addiction pumping in our blood, zORBing has created a new friendly home for itself with the ORB team as head of the household.
zORBing has the extreme capability to make your team building, corporate function, school fun day or promotional event the talk of the town and an event that all attending will never forget.
