Zorbing at Taman Tasik Titiwangsa

zorbing

Zorbing is best described as two people rolling around in an inflated spherical shaped cocoon at a relatively high velocity. It comes in dry and wet variants and I headed down to check it out with Jerine and Becky yesterday morning.

Jerine booked our session at the decidedly Satanic time of 10 am on a Sunday so we all arrived there when most people are still in bed. You’re not supposed to take anything into the orb ball but I took my waterproof compact inside to film the entire jumbled up sequence.

mission

I was first up with Jerine for the dry run (pun not intended). You suit up and head into a globe which is rolled downhill. It is a bit more interesting that it sounds, for the sensation of getting your bearings completely fucked up is something which is usually only achievable by massive doses of ketamine. ;)

setting up

Setting up…

zip

Erm…Becky?

action

Damn action pose

strap

Lock and load!

on a mission

We’re on a mission!

jokes

There were a lot of jokes about getting wet, playing with balls, fisting et al contributed by all three of us. Heh! I can’t remember it all but it was funny.

air

It is fucking hot inside the Zorb ball and the staff had to constantly blow air into the ball as we were strapping up, which provided a welcome relief from the heat.

act cute

Damn act cute not cute one. >.<

I was surprised at the disorientation produced by rolling down the hill.

I was unprepared and my index finger accidentally pressed the Start/Stop button on my digicam several times, thus the disjointed video.

roll down

The staff there pushed the Zorb downhill so it goes rather fast – good old kinetic power combined with potential energy.

me becky

Becky only went for the wet orbing session and there was supposed to be four of us but her partner FFK her so I went twice on the wet orb – once with her and once with Jerine. Unfortunately, I wasn’t ready when the good people there pushed the ball down so I don’t have video footage of that session.

pour water

Splish splash I was taking a bath!

strap in

However, it’s a good thing I had another session with my partner Jerine. This time I made sure I turned on video mode early and didn’t touch anything. You can see the water sloshing everywhere in this video:

This is a must view to see what Zorbing looks like from the inside – don’t bother with the other two videos, just watch this one if you can only watch one.

enter zorb

Going into the orb is like going back to where you’re born – you stick your hands in and slide inside the ball.

exit orb

Exiting the wet orb is very much like being reborn again – coming out from the womb, with slick placenta fluid, I mean, water, assisting your entrance into this fucked up world.

jerine exit

Less than graceful exit. ;)

hairband

Rebecca, I believe this is your hairband.

wet wet wet

Wet wet wet!

exit zorb

It costs RM 15 for the dry Zorbing session and RM 20 for the wet Zorbing session, which is pretty reasonable considering my head still hurts from bumping into God knows what and my shoulders have bruises from the straps.

wet orb aftermath

I recommend the wet Zorbing session for maximum pleasure – they splash water inside the ball before you go in and it’s a jumble of feet, hands and various other appendages as you roll downhill, with water going into every single orifice on your body.

exit wet orb

…and guess what? The water is brownish and dirty from all the mud and getting it into your mouth tastes something awful.

changing

Hell, we had to change at my car in full view of everyone in Taman Tasik Titiwangsa. I do have more interesting photos of the two girls changing but I fear I will be castrated if I post them up. Haha! It was a fun session though – I’m glad I woke up early to do this.

me jerine

Becky told us to suck our stomachs in.

jerine ass

P/S – You’ll get drenched inside the wet Zorbing session so don’t wear white unless you want your G-string to be visible to all and sunder. ;)

big pimpin

One last photo to end the post – the obligatory big pimpin’ pose. Heh!

  1. debbie: OMG! I’m sorry, you comment looked a bit like spam so I accidentally deleted it when you first posted! My apologies! :(
    Anyway, managed to replicate it again from Gmail when I realized it was you. :)
    Yeah, it’s a lot of fun, I much prefer the wet Zorbing session though. :)
    KY: Yeah, this is bucketloads of fun, definately worth a try! :)

  2. ah loon: Hello there!
    Yup, it was a fun (but VERY SHORT) experience since they roll you down a hill.
    I won’t exactly call it a hill either, it’s more like a slope. :)
    eiling: Yeah, go for it! I don’t mind going a second time! There’s also a Zorbing globe where you walk on water and other activities to do there. I was suprised Taman Tasik Titiwangsa has so much to offer. :)

  3. unkaleong: Haha! Yeah, it was a lot of fun!
    That was my fault. T_T
    I told Jerine that we don’t need a towel so no one actually brought one. I didn’t know we’ll get wet inside the wet Zorb globe coz they show the floating on water on in the website. :)
    Xiaopei: Hello there! :)
    Hmm…that’s a very good question.
    I think it’s to provide a different experience – rolling down dry gets you disorientated but with water inside, you get disorientation PLUS water splashing all over you – it got into our noses, ears and mouth! :)

  4. wen pink: Haha! She was helping me zip it back up, not unzipping it. :)
    Yeah, it’s a lot of fun, and there’s a lot of other stuff to do in Taman Tasik Titiwangsa too. Seems like a nice place on a Sunday! :)
    e: Heh! No, I didn’t take posing lessons, I realize that I can do both “action” and “act cute” poses.
    BTW, I have been reading asianposes.com
    Haha! :)
    suituapui: Of course! There’s three people to roll you down the hill (okay, it would be more accurate to call it a slight incline) and it’s an air filled sphere. It’ll be fun! :)
    Jocelyn: Heh! I had three videos – messed up the dry one coz my fingers kept on hitting the Start/Stop button, the wet one with Becky started before I had time to switch it to video mode so I made sure I recorded properly on the last wet ride. I like the video too. :)
    Thanks! :)

  5. I was suppose to come for this Zorbing on that day too….But i was tired b4 the day before this…LOL
    Damm fun leh!
    More fun wif wet zorbing together wif a gurl =P

  6. ah nel: Oh it’s been here for 3 years? I didn’t know that! I thought it was something new. :)
    It is a lot of fun though, thoroughly enjoyed myself. :)
    I still have bruises from the straps and my head hurts. Haha!
    JustinH: Oh it would have been fun! Apparently you have to make bookings in advance and get a timeslot, Jerine made the bookings. It cost RM 90 for the 3 of us, I think they didn’t charge me for the second wet zorbing session.
    Yup, it really is a lot of fun! :)

  7. xes: Haha! Yeah, it is very much like that – entering back into the Holies of Holies and exiting from the womb. It’s a lot of fun!
    I just realized they calculated wrongly coz we initially had 4 people and 3 people turned up. Thus, I went for the wet Zorbing globe session twice but was only charged for once. :)
    Hanie Hidayah: Yeah she did. T_T
    My head still hurts when I put on headphones.
    Her right leg is not strapped in (the strap was missing) so all her limbs were everywhere when the ball started rolling downhill. Haha! :)
    thenomadGourmand: Yup, Jerine was looking through the photos last night too – I chose the very best ones – I like zipper one, damn funny. Haha!
    Yup, we shall make it into a weekly thing! It’s fun.
    We’re the best partners coz we’re all crazy like you and game for anything. :)

  8. Jerine: I vote for kayaking! Rock climbing only if it’s not in a mall. Nature FTW! :)
    I still prefer kayaking though.
    Fuck at the rate we’re going we’ll be like damn healthy lor…drink during weekends but still exercise and wake up early. Haha!

  9. Excuse me, are you sure you can do this in public? Didn’t they ‘arrest’ a couple merely for holding hands? How can you put your arms around persons not your own gender, hold her legs and let her ‘zip’ for you?
    Oh, wait. They are married to you, aren’t they? You’ll still need to have the marriage certs with you when they check…
    OK OK OK, I’m just kidding. Sorry.
    Zorbing looks fun, and it’s yonks since I went to Titiwangsa. Should go one day soon…

  10. Dymm Tuanku: Haha! Well, you were referring to casinos and betting, this is a whole different BALL game. ;)
    Pun intended.
    Cheers bro! :)
    takeshi: Heh! That was a looooong time ago bro. I remember – 2003 right? KLCC. Me and my ex then intentionally did PDAs there but no one said anything, much less fine us.
    Oh, and we also changed in full view at my car. Haha!
    No worries la, we can all take a joke here at sixthseal.com – don’t need a disclaimer mate. :)
    Zorbing is fun! Hey, there’s not only that in Taman Tasik Titiwangsa, there are people playing some watersports and this contraption which makes you jump very high. :)

  11. foodcrazee: Yup it’s damn fun! Hey, Becky was with us when I met up with you the previous time I was in Genting, there were 5 of us, 3 of which went for Zorbing in this post. :)

  12. I meant Rock Climbing at Batu Caves. Eh… don’t associate drinking with me. You’re the only one who drink during weekends. I’m sober all the time.

  13. nice post hb. lots of videos and pictures, it brought a smile to my face. looks like you guys were having a lot of fun.

  14. Jerine: Batu caves sounds good! :)
    Eh, really? Not even a drop to drink during the weekend? ;)
    I’m sober all the time too. =D
    Jane: It was very hot and very stuffy but they blow air inside and the ride down is so fast that you don’t feel it. :)
    ahlost: Okay! Sounds like a plan! See you all in KL! Which date ah? I’m also going to Melbourne in June. :)
    WEEN: Yup, it was a good weekend – won some money at a casino, had good food and good times, and lots of drinking. It’s what a proper weekend should be. Heh!
    foodcrazee: Yeah, that was towards the end of the Genting session. Nevermind! Next trip up if you’re working we come and see you! :)
    Mellissa: Yeah, it’s a lot of fun eh? I never saw this in Australia though, this is my first time Zorbing. Very nifty concept…now if only I can think of something fun like this and market it. ;)

  15. Ah nice! I’ve always wanted to do this! I think when it first came to Malaysia it was RM 50 – the reason why I didn’t go for it , cause paying RM 50 to roll down in a “ball” is not exactly worth it. Hahahaha.

  16. chefmel: Heh! Yes, and it’s not exactly a hill either…more like an incline. I would love to roll down a proper hill and see how that feels.
    Go for it, it’s quite cheap now, the wet ride is worth it. :)

  17. yienyien: Yup, come I’ll bring you when you come over to KL! Lots of stuff to do there too, not just Zorbing. :)
    Jerine: Wah you dare to say you didn’t drink a drop ah? Lunch after this? Dinner on Sunday? ;)
    I am always sober, I still drive normally and talk normally (except for Friday which I admit I was fucking drunk so I didn’t drive). :)
