Davao Zorb Park

Zorbing or Globe Riding is becoming one of the most popular outdoor activities in Davao City. It involves rolling down a gentle slope hill inside a huge inflatable and transparent globe or ball about 3 meters in diameter usually made of plastic in a safe and controlled environment lasting for a few seconds to a minute or so.

Zorbing actually originated in New Zealand 15 years or so ago and it has since became so popular that the sport went beyond its place of origin and expanded to a global sport sensation. The first zorbing site was established in Rotorua, New Zealand, by Andrew Akers and David Akers.

Davao Zorb Park

Davao Zorb Park is a facility that provides zorbing activities to the sport enthusiasts and beginners alike in a fun, safe, and controlled environment. It is owned and operated by Mr. Sonny Dizon, the same group that gave us the Davao Crocodile Park, Davao Butterfy House, Davao Wildwater Adventure, Zip City, and a whole bunch of eco-adventure facilities in Davao City.
