What is zorbing?
You just run, trip or lolly-dazy across the water, within the confines of a giant bubble.
The nature of the giant bubble and/or its operators ensures you do not float or fly away, somewhere in the Atlantic or down the River Kennet. That’s right — zorbing has also been spied along The Oracle Riverwalk!
Since the first time I saw someone water zorbing on Portobello Beach in Edinburgh, it has seemed like genuine fun.
I will let you know more about how to zorb if I give the zorbs a whirl. Hopefully so… and hopefully soon!
And don’t forget about Schweppe’s free swimming in Berkshire offer, good for all ages!
p.s. — For other cool family fun in Reading, check out my post about Carters Steam Fair happening later this month.
Zorbing in Reading Central Pool
The following info is from Reading Borough Council.
Zorbing Sessions – get into the giant ball and walk on the water! Have races with your friends or just enjoy rolling around in the ball. Don’t miss the first session!
