ZORB WATER BALL MAKES A SPLASH AT ENCHANTED KINGDOM

Sunday, December 20, 2009
Guests have another reason to visit Enchanted Kingdom as the country’s first and only world-class theme park opens its latest attraction, the Zorb Water Ball.

During the 1980’s, a sports club from Auckland, New Zealand was inspired by a hamster ball to construct a giant sphere with a gimbal arrangement supporting two deck chairs inside. Human spheres have been depicted in mass media since 1990 when a reality show first aired the idea in the form of steel balls.

In 1994, Dwane van der Sluis and Andrew Akers conceived the idea for a type of sphere in Auckland, New Zealand, calling their invention the "Zorb"

Also known as walk-on-water-ball or WOW ball, it is a double-sectioned plastic sphere about 2.5 meters in diameter that can carry a flat weight of 150 lbs. The said ball is made from super resilient material called thermoplastic polyurethane that allows a human occupant to travel on shallow water.

Most of the balls have straps to hold the rider in place, while Zorb balls leave its rider free to walk the sphere around or be tossed about freely at a secluded part of the Rio Grande Rapids near the Eldar’s tent at Spaceport Zone. For only P50, you can enjoy this unique experience for 5 minutes!

Come to Enchanted Kingdom where the magic stays with you! From now to January 3, 2010, we are open daily from 10AM to 12MN Fireworks Display at 10PM.
