Discover the Thrill of Zorbing at Pigeon Forge’s Outdoor Gravity Park

Are you seeking a unique adventure in Pigeon Forge? Look no further than the exhilarating experience at the Outdoor Gravity Park, home to the only zorbing location in the United States.

A Family Dream Come True

It all began in 2016 when my family gathered around the TV to watch the Travel Channel’s “Bert the Conqueror.” Comedian Bert Kreischer roamed the country in search of fun, wild, and sometimes dangerous activities. One memorable episode highlighted Pigeon Forge’s Outdoor Gravity Park and introduced us to the world of zorbing.

As we watched, my then-12-year-old daughter, MacKenzie, was captivated by the idea of zorbing and promptly added it to her bucket list. The name “zorbing” might sound amusing, but the activity is nothing short of thrilling.

The Adventure Begins

Zorbing at Outdoor Gravity Park starts with a 1,000-foot track. There are four distinct courses to choose from, each offering a unique experience depending on the number of riders. Before embarking on this adventure, you’ll need to decide between a wet run or a dry run. Keep in mind that the dry run is seasonal, while the wet run guarantees you’ll get soaked, so plan accordingly.

Once you’ve selected your course, a bus takes you to the top of the hill, where your adventure begins. You’ll crawl into a ball known as an OGO, an 11-foot-wide transparent sphere made of over 300 square feet of plastic in two layers. These layers are connected by 1,000 small anchors, ensuring a safe and secure ride down the hill. After being zipped inside the OGO, you’re ready to roll.

An Unforgettable Experience

According to my children, zorbing is an exhilarating and unforgettable experience. Outdoor Gravity Park is currently the only place in the United States where you can try it. My kids opted for the wet zorbing experience, donning their swimsuits before crawling into the OGO, where 10 gallons of water awaited them. The water creates the perfect environment for slipping and sliding as you roll down the hill.

You don’t need to run like a hamster or worry about flipping over. My children chose the FUNnel course, which features a series of zigs and zags, making for a minute and a half of pure adrenaline. This adventure quickly became their top must-do attraction in Pigeon Forge. They loved every second of it, relishing the combination of getting wet, navigating an obstacle course, and enjoying a thrilling ride.

MacKenzie proudly crossed zorbing off her bucket list, and both of my children are eagerly anticipating their next visit to Pigeon Forge’s Outdoor Gravity Park. Next time, they’re planning to try zorbing solo!
