Description

from Outdoor Gravity Park
Come zorbing at the Outdoor Gravity Park. Pigeon Forge’s newest attraction featuring H2OGO zorbing with warm water, where you slip, slide and get wet, still without any tumbling. The fast and adrenaline-packed descent is akin to a bouncy water slide. If you choose to get wet bring your swimsuit and towel -- this center is open, rain or shine (or cold).

During the fall and winter the Outdoor Gravity Park offers DRYGO, dry zorbing. The DRYGO is made up of three plastic spheres, one inside the other. The largest one is 11 feet in diameter. The middle sphere contains a cushion of water, and the smallest sphere slides around on the water layer. One, two or three passengers make Superman-like dives into the inner sphere and stay totally dry as they roll down a steep 1,000-foot-long hill. The passengers slip and slide without any tumbling as the smaller sphere spins inside the middle sphere. The DRYGO is subject to seasonal review.

Outdoor Gravity Park has carved five OGO routes down the hill. Two of the routes are straightaways, and three are zigzag routes.

“Our site is 17 acres, and we have plenty of room to grow. We plan to add to more attractions this summer. Rest assured that both will feature gravity and fun,” says Chris Roberts, an owner and mechanical engineer.

Outdoor Gravity Park is located on the former Zorb site that features the New Zealand iconic OGO adventure, just off the Parkway in Pigeon Forge at Traffic Light #1.

**Each Roll is considered 1 Person Zorbing. 3 People Rolling together are considered 3 Rolls.

"Had a Blast!!!"
March, 2017
I was really scared at first because I thought I would continuously be rolling around in the ball, but ended up having a blast because you do not flip constantly getting out of the ball was quite hard but no less funny !' The only negative was the guy who is helping us get out of the ball was not exactly too friendly! He was a little moody and not very understanding that it is harder for fat people to get out LOL !!! Other than that it was amazing, definitely a memorable experience !!!

"Fun time."
June, 2016
We were on family vacation for a week. This was a great filler activity. We also zip lined, went white water rafting, helicopter ride, Westgate resort indoor water park, OberGatlinburg Tramway. I asked my family to rate the activity and they said 3 and 3 1/2 stars. I recommend this activity for your family.

"LOTS OF FUN "

So we went the end of January and yes it was cold out. First to note the “bad” which isn’t all that bad: we bought tickets through TripAdvisor for a Wednesday. When we looked on the parks website and FB, they were closed Tues-Thurs. it was a pain going through TripAdvisor (Viator). We didn’t want a refund. We wanted to go. Finally, after not getting a return call from the park (left a message), I messaged them on FB. Jesse was awesome and responded ASAP. He was apologetic and took great care of us. They WILL honor your tickets despite what their hours are. They went above and beyond after that. So contact them through their FB page for the fastest response even after business hours. Now onto the fun part: definitely bring a change of clothes and a good towel. They have towels you can purchase but they are on the small side. The water was very warm (in winter months) so you won’t freeze inside the OGO. My hubby and I went together in the zigzag track. We couldn’t stop laughing all the way down!! They give you a go pro to record yourself. Just remember to dip it in the water a lot to clear the fog on the screen. You will NOT be able to tell when the screen fogs due to the water and you splashing around. Parts of our videos are foggy and blurry. We loved it so much that we bought 2 more rolls because we wanted to go down the extreme track (solo rides only). I watched hubby go down first and heard him the whole way down. Lol. He even caught a little air. But he forgot to dip the camera so it became blurry and foggy for most of his video. Boo! I went down after and extreme is right! In the future, this would be the only way I roll. 😉 there is NO obligation to buy the videos. You get to see them on their TV screens before you decide. Pricing was reasonable ($12-20 w/a discount if you have more than one video you want to buy) at the same time. They have a few different ways to get the videos: usb drive, Dropbox or android phone option (sorry iPhones there is no IOS support yet). It can get pricey, but the more rolls you buy, the better the discount. Don’t hesitate! During tourist season, lines can be an hour wait so keep that in mind!

If I compare the cost with the fun then I must write it was a little pricey. But it was cheap for the second time. :) But the best part was my kids enjoyed it.

"Too expensive for the short ride"

Thrilling experience but too expensive. The “ride” was too short. Either the price should be less or the ride longer.

If you want to here the words “you are the best parents in the world”, and who doesn’t? Take your kids here. Our sons 10, 13 & 15 years old had a blast!!! It was a very quick experience, and absolutely do it wet, even if it’s cold. It seemed slightly pricey at first but doing things like this for your kids is priceless!

Frequently Asked Questions about Outdoor Gravity Park

How many people can roll together?
Up to 3 people can go zorbing in the OGO. We sell our rolls by the person. 1 paid roll is good for 1 roll for 1 person. If 3 people are rolling together, each person would need to purchase 1 roll for a total of 3 rolls. The 3 Rolls ticket type can actually be shared for 1-3 people to ride together.

Can the little ones ride by themselves?
Our age restriction is 5 years old with an adult, and 6 years old to go by yourself for the OGO.

Is there a height or weight restriction for the OGO?
There no height restriction but a 260 lb weight limit.

Do you tumble down the hill?
No, with the H2OGO you slip and slip along the bottom of the OGO.

How many courses do you have?
We have 3 courses: the Speed Demon, the FUNnel, and the Extreme Zig-Zag.

Should I bring a bathing suit and towel?
We have dry and wet ride options. If you're prepared to get wet, then bring your stuff. We have changing rooms on site. Or if you'd rather drip-dry, we're cool with that too!

Is there a height or weight restriction for the OGO?
There no height restriction but a 260 lb weight limit.

What is OGO?
The OGO is an 11-foot transparent sphere constructed of 300 square feet of plastic. We offer a dry or wet version. The H2OGO wet version is a wet in wild experience and the most popular way to roll down a hill, the water inside makes it slippery for riders to slide inside, no dizziness or tumbling, just good clean fun!

Is there a wait time?
On busy days there could be a short wait but we have added another track so our capacity has increased. Over the summer if you want to avoid the wait we recommend you come before 11:00 am or after 4:00 pm.

What is zorbing?
We get asked a lot about zorbing and is rolling in the OGO the same thing. Basically the answer is “yes” but we like to think we are MORE FUN! Zorbing is an activity of travelling downhill inside a large air-cushioned hollow ball.

Is Outdoor Gravity Park affiliated with Zorb?
No, we have no affiliation with Zorb. The Outdoor Gravity Park is located on the old Zorb Smoky Mountain site and we do offer zorbing as one of our activities. The Outdoor Gravity Park has added tracks, made the rolls longer, and the experience is superb. Our partner OGO site in New Zealand is run by the founder of Zorb.
