“Rollin, Rollin, Rollin keep those Zorbs Ro'llin”
Let's laugh! Today we get so embroiled in the news and the Covid-19 pandemic that we forget how to have fun and enjoy ourselves.
As we are Santa and Mrs Claus at heart, we are childlike and full of wonder at the world around us. We love to try new things, especially if it looks like fun. Santa Claus is always ready to embark on a new adventure.
Our Executive Producer, Bob Denney, at Mountain Fun Life approached us with a very unique idea he had. It was certainly something that we had never heard about before. (Just goes to show there is always something new to learn and explore.)
“How would you like to take a ride in a Zorb?” Bob asked Santa.
“A what?” was his reply.
“A Zorb, you see you get in a giant plastic ball and roll down a long hill,” Bob answered.
“And that is suppose to be fun? I don't know Bob, even to me that does not sound like a lot of fun.”
“Oh sure it is, and to make it even more fun, I thought you could ride down the hill with Elvis!”
“Now what makes you think we both fit in this one plastic ball? You know that Santa is not exactly small.” Santa was hesitant, “I don't think this is a good idea and I'm not sure I get why I would want to roll down a hill in a big plastic ball by myself, or with Elvis.”
“Well, Outdoor Gravity Park in Pigeon Forge is the only Zorbing Park in the USA. This sport was developed in New Zeland and you know how those 'Kiwis' love to have fun.” Bob explained further, “It is an 11 foot inflatable ball, filled with 10 gallons of water and you roll down a 1000 foot hill. What's not to like?”
Bob was almost feverish by now, “Just think Santa Claus and Elvis rolling down the hill with Elvis singing, 'Santa Claus is coming to town.' I think everyone would love this, the thought is just too funny.”
“I don't know, I'm still not convinced that I would have fun,” answered Santa. “But you are probably right that this should bring lots of smiles. All right, let's go for it.”
Well needless to say Santa Claus and Elvis were good sports and indeed did take a ride together on the Zorb and roll down the hill. After watching the video, I was rolling on the floor laughing. You can't watch this without smiling and laughing....Enjoy!
