When thefed said he had a product in development that would appeal to adults but go along with the inflatables, I thought maybe it was something like one of these two:

those zorbs are insanely popular already. we worked with the manufacturer to develop them, and plan on bringing them to market in about 3 months. we will be targeting other rental companies first

i prefer naked laser maze over zorbing, for the record. just sayin...

Great job on the business. I did not review all of your items available. We went to a wedding last month and the digital photo booth (rented) that spit out 4 pictures was very popular. Maybe one of these would fit in with your party products. People just could not stop getting pictures with each other to remember the event.

Does the laser equipment require the players to wear glasses?

no it does not.


and im not sure i mentioned it, but the body zorbs are being brought to the retail and rental markets by yours truly in about 2 months. we've helped design the ones you see on the site, are waiting on some trademark work, and will be starting another company selling these to rental companies as well as the public. add manufacturer to my list of businesses lol

couldnt figure out the spike in traffic til i dug deeper to see that 85 visits yesterday came from here!

Hey - that is such great news! Congrats to you and your wife!

Shoot, your website is 100x better then many out here. As long as you have a nice person answering the phone/easy system to reserve you are way ahead of many others in this business..I got so frustrated one year I just gave up.

I have wanted to do that Zorbing at a place in Tennessee (the nearest to us in SC) for forever--but there, you actually get inside the ball and roll down a hill. I've never seen the ones like yours, with your legs sticking out!

This is the place I want to go: ZORB.com - ZORB Smoky Mountains

But the site is very cool, theFed. Nice job!

Feever, you are bad, bad, bad....
