Zorbing in Calgary’s Olympic Park

Zorbing CanadaKeen on trying something a little more thrilling than a walk in the park? Head to Calgary Olympic Park and try out one of the parks most loco activities. Strap into a life-size opaque hamster ball with one or two people, and commence the ride of your life as the ball is rolled down a downhill track. Known in Calgary as Z-trip, you may know it as Zorbing, the official name given by the inventors who come from New Zealand. After seeing how much fun those kiwi’s were havin’ in the southern hemisphere, a team at Calgary’s Olympic Park said “We gotta get one of those”. Sure enough, they did.

Z-tripping operates weekends between 10:00am and 5:00pm, and will accept booking of 10 or more people throughout the summer.

Individual – $33
Additional same-day rides – $20
Groups: (12 – 39) – $27/person
Groups: (40+) – $25/person
Group capacity 24 people/hour

    That is wicked! We were just in Calgary and didn’t hear a thing about it. Oh well, next time. See, you don’t have to go to New Zealand for adrenaline and adventure. We have it all right here in Canada!

      @Dave and Deb – Haha! I know what you mean! I didn’t know we had this until just recently. I think next time I’m in Calgary I’ll definitely hop in on some pure zorbing action. It’s really kind of insane how much Canada has to offer in terms of travel, it’s just a matter of getting that information out there for the world to see. Thanks for reading guys
