Rolling down a hill just got a lot more fun, and that shit was pretty freakin’ awesome to begin with!

Yes, someone combined the hilariously dangerous yoga ball with the equally hilarious and dangerous “pushing people off elevated ground”.

Like the Inception of plastic balls (or something), you wedge yourself into an interior compartment while an outer reinforced sphere shields your frail body from certain destruction. A sphere within a sphere! Then some trusty manservant shoves you down a hill. Pretty simple!

It’s not recommended you Zorb outside of an official Zorbing facility (because if you can trust anyone with your life, it’s Zorb carnies), which you can find here. But if you want to go all rogue, balls are up for sale on the ‘ol Google machine. Be forewarned, however, a decent Zorb will cost you in the $1,000 range. But what’s a grand next to the minutes of fun you’ll have right before you hit a wall and die?
