Zorbing   翻滾吧!太空球
If you are looking for fun, give zorbing a try.
如果你在找樂子,就試試看太空球吧。

  Imagine rolling down a hill or across a lake while you are inside a giant beach ball. If this sounds like an exciting experience, you should try zorbing. Zorbing is an extreme sport that was created in New Zealand during the 1990s. The giant ball, called a zorb, is made up of two plastic balls. The outer ball provides protection, and the inner ball is where up to three people can stand. Once the riders are inside, the fun begins. Although the ride starts off slow, zorbs can reach speeds of up to 32 miles per hour.
  Zorbing has spread all over the world. There are zorbing centers in the US, England, Japan, and many other places. In Taiwan, people are even using smaller zorbs to play soccer. Players wear zorbs on the top part of their bodies while trying to kick the ball in the other team’s goal. Since everyone is protected by a zorb, it is all right to bump other players and send them flying through the air. Whether you are rolling down a hill at top speed, having fun in the water, or crashing into friends, zorbing is always a great time.

  想像你在一個大型海灘球裡面,從一個山坡滾下去或越過湖泊。如果這聽起來像是一種刺激的體驗,那你就該試試看太空球。太空球是九○年代起源自紐西蘭的一種極限運動。被稱作太空球的大球體是由兩個塑膠球組成。外層的球提供保護,內層的球可以讓多達三人站在裡面。一旦搭乘者進到球體裡面,樂趣就開始了。雖然一開始的速度很慢,但是太空球可以達到高達三十二英里(約五十一點五公里)的時速。
  太空球在全世界蔚為流行。在美國、英國、日本和其他很多地方都有太空球中心。在台灣,人們甚至使用較小的太空球來踢足球。球員上半身罩在太空球裡,同時試著把球踢進對方隊的球門裡。由於所有人都被太空球保護,撞擊其他球員並讓他們飛到半空中是被允許的。而無論你從山坡上高速滾下、在水上玩樂或衝撞朋友,太空球總是帶來很多樂趣。
