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.

Everyone should experience this at least once. Far better than I could have imagined. Went on the zig zag coarse and had a blast. I would like to try it with 2nd person in zorb sometime.

Tip: Dive into zorb when entering so that you land flat on your side not stomach! You will be soaking wet upon exiting!

"You ALL made us two happy travelers"
August, 2018
My daughter and I traveled to Pigeon Forge JUST for the ZORBINg... When we got there we were greeted warmly by reception staff ( Maddie, Maggie, Aaron, Millie and Addie ) Given instructions what to do... and off we went to stand in line to get a switch but comfortable ride up to the top where we were readied to get rolled down. At the top, the persons ( Ashley, Zeke and Dennis) prepping the ZORBS for the trip down the hill were quick and efficient and very polite and helpful to get us ready. THEN off we went... down... with the three different courses that gave a GREAT experience of ZORBING. Then as we arrived at the bottom the staff ( Jeneme, Carlos and Jason ) were most helpful, friendly and engaging. This made our time here that much BETTER. Oh, and after we left we realized there were other attractions BUT we never went. ZORBING was stupendous here and we shall return again some day, I hope.

"You will "roll" with laughs!!"
July, 2018
Dive into a huge ball filled with air and combine that with water making a big slip and slide. Now put you a couple friends in there with you and go for a super fun and wet ride! Once in the ball you can select from multiple tracks and you go down the hill. It does not flip you upside down but you bet it is Fun!! Cant wait to do this again

"Must Do!"
July, 2018
At first we were unsure about booking this activity for our trip but we are so glad we did!
The facility was clean and the staff was very friendly. Great activity for all ages. Make sure to bring towels (or get charged $4 for a small basic white towel at the facility) and your own GoPro or water proof camera. The company will provide you a GoPro if requested at the start of your roll, but the video will cost you around $30. Definitely recommend to everyone!

Tip: Great for all ages! Ride alone or with up to 3 people!

"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 !!!

I am not a big fan of the "zorbing," but the Outdoor Gravity Park is a good, clean, well-maintained, nicely peopled place. If you're very, very adventurous (and possibly less top-heavy than I am), then you will probably enjoy it a great deal more than I did. Which is to say: I did not enjoy the experience. But I respect the facility and its employees. The park is off the beaten path, and we saw deer and wildlife in their driveway in the middle of the day. That should tell you how it's situated away from the main drag through Pigeon Forge. We got there on a very rainy August day and were the only patrons in the joint -- my 57-year-old husband, my sister, and 51-year-old, chubby old me. I should say that I dearly love roller coasters and all sorts of spinning and speeding rides, but I do not do things from great heights like bungee jumping. That is not my cup of tea. But I've never met a roller coaster I didn't love, even the really rough wooden Thunderhead at Dollywood. (OW... but dang, that's a good coaster!) Dear Husband is given to claustrophobia, but he was *dying* to ride the big hamster balls. Darling Sister is an adrenaline junkie, and she was chomping at the bit. I love thrills, ... but something about the whole thing gave me pause. I really kind of wish I hadn't gone. We were already soaking wet, having just been tubing down the Little River in the pouring rain, so we were already ready in our swimsuits and ready to Zorb. The very friendly, attractive, and helpful young employees piled us into a van and drove us to the top of the hill where we were doled out among the three trails. I think Dear Husband chose the straight path. Darling Sister picked the zig zag. And I, choosing last, was assigned the path that does both zig zagging and straight rolling. The last thing the attendant said to me was, "Try not to get going with your back downhill." And then they zipped me in, and then they pushed me downhill, and in a split second, I was going with my back down the hill. In zig zags. And bumpies. And zigs. All rolling in a giant, vinyl-smelling hamster ball with about seven inches of water slorping around me. I'll be honest. I genuinely thought I was going to die. I thought I was going to drown in the water, since it was all around me and sloshing everywhere, along with my flailing legs and my useless little pitiful hands trying to find something to hold onto inside the ball. I thought I was going to roll over onto my head and break my puny neck. Either way, death seemed imminent. I'll be even more honest. Part of what kept me alive, I think, was the fervent hope that I would not lose control and accidentally pee inside the ball. Immediately on the heels of that thought was, "How many small, terrified children have peed inside this thing?!" I know that all the videos I watched on YouTube were of happy people who seemed to be having a lovely ride. I was not one of those people. I kind of wish I *had* taken the GoPro with me so I could memorialize one person who was terrified of the zorbing. On the other hand, now that I've finally written this review, I'm going to try to forget what it was like. I'm sure neither Dear Husband nor Darling Sister will let me try such foolishness again. It's perfectly safe to forget. By the way, at the end of the whole experience, we decamped to really nice dressing rooms to change clothes. And the ladies' dressing room is FILLED with hair dryers!!! So if it's really important to you to maintain a well-groomed coiffure, there you go! Outdoor Gravity Park really does have you covered! Basically, I don't want to scare anyone away, but if you're not a teenager any more, and maybe a little more substantial on top than you are on at your knees, you might want to consider skipping the longer routes and trying out the straight-away to see how you do with hamster ball rolling. You might love it! My people did! But if you don't love it, don't worry. You're not alone.

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.
