About Outdoor Gravity Park
The Outdoor Gravity Park is located in Pigeon Forge, Tenn., and is home to the iconic New Zealand adventure zorbing. The OGO (giant ball) is 11 feet high, 11 feet fat, bouncy and sits perched at the top of a 1,000-foot hill. In a moment, you will go rolling towards the bottom, slip and sliding, no tumbling — but only after a couple of things happen. First, one to three people dive into the sphere’s belly. Then one of the park’s attendants tosses 10 gallons of water into this signature attraction, and finally zip you inside. The water makes for a slippery ride, though one without tumbling–your fast and adrenaline-packed descent down our 1000-foot hill is more akin to a bouncy water slide or a rolling Jacuzzi. Bring your swimsuit and towel and come join us as we are open rain or shine. In addition, a dry zorbing version, DRYGO, is available in fall, winter, and early spring.
