Samui Waterball gives a whole new meaning to the phrase ‘slippery when wet’. This exhilarating ride will undoubtedly be one of the most memorable experiences you’ll have on your visit to the island of Koh Samui – there’s nothing else quite like it.
Samui Waterball is Koh Samui’s most exhilarating ride. You’ll travel out to a lush jungle location for this one, but we think it’s safe to say that the idyllic setting won’t be at the forefront of your mind as you hurtle along at high speed. Known as ‘zorbing’, this adventure will see you climbing inside a specially designed transparent rubber sphere, which will then be launched from the top of a man made hill – with you inside it.
But it doesn’t stop there. Before you climb aboard, you’ll choose from two options designed to ensure that your Samui Waterball ride is as wild as you want it. First up, there’s the ‘just add water’ option. Prepare to get a drenching as water is added to the ball with you – perfect for that extra refreshing cool blast on a balmy Koh Samui day. Think of it like a cross between rolling around in a human sized hamster ball and riding the fastest, wettest water slide you can imagine. Yes, it’s that good.
Alternatively, you can choose to stay dry and be strapped to the inside of the ball instead. But don’t be fooled – this isn’t the tame option. In fact, this is one for the hardcore thrill seeker, as your ride will take you spinning through 360 degrees – and that’s on top of the speed you’ll already be travelling at. The result? A pure adrenaline rush that will take your breath away.
Whichever option calls to you, Samuipedia can get your Samui Waterball experience lined up before you’ve even arrived on the island. Any questions? We can advise you on age and health restrictions, so just drop us a line. We say you haven’t tried waterballing until you’ve tried it Koh Samui style!
Samui Waterball is open from 08:00 to 17:30, 7 days a week. You can book any time you choose and the experience lasts for around 30 minutes.
Repeat goes and in-ball action videos are available.
