The press on this thing has really been inflated...

Looks like this will set her career back a bit.

I bet she'll sue for some exZORBitent sum of money...

She didn't see the small print on the ride -- Free Spine Damage with Every Purchase !

Buyer beware.

Sounds painful and I hope these folks recovery soon and fully.

But, isn't there something more newsworthy happening in the Great State of Maine than the opening of a ZORB ride?

What, you want every single article to be about something of critical local or national interest/importance? I, for one, appreciate the interspersed tidbits such as this. Go read the rest of the paper instead of whining about this article.

They should have done something much, much safer...Like going off of a ski-jump in a kayak.
