Want to have a ball on Boracay? Okay…I should just stop right there…the joke is way too cheesy, but maybe I should explain what I’m talking about. Zorbing.
Melo inside the Zorb
Zor-what? Zorbing. This is when you literally get in a ball and roll down a hill. Lofl. I’m serious as a heart attack. Zorbing in Boracay means you get in a giant plastic ball and you roll down a hill in it and I’ve got to tell you now, it’s way more fun than it sounds when I write about it.
Boracay Zorbing Experience
To get to the Zorb Park, just head towards the Bat Cave in Yapak and you will find it. It’s hard to miss a bunch of people rolling down hills in giant balls! The Zorb balls are about three meters across and they are pretty cheap, starting at about 300 pesos and going up to about 600 pesos depending on whether you want to ride solo, with friends, or with friends and water!
Waterless Zorb in Boracay
Personally, I prefer the solo ride where they strap you in and you go end over end down the hill but if you want to slip and slide with friends inside a water filled ball as it rolls down the hill you can do that too. I figured if I was with a special someone, that might be fun and truly an unforgettable experience.

I should warn you though…once you ride the Zorb, you won’t be the same. It does something to a person. When I emerged from the giant ball it was like the world had changed around me. Suddenly I had beautiful women begging for my phone number, a chauffeur was waiting to take me back to my mansion, and then… well, then the dizziness wore off and I came back to reality.
Still, either way is a blast. It’s like nothing you’ve ever done unless you’ve rolled down a grassy hill in a giant ball before.
