State officials in Maine say Zorb New England, the Danville, N.H.-based promoter of a new amusement ride, was operating it without a permit when a newspaper reporter was seriously injured during a media preview of the device at Lost Valley Ski Resort.

State officials in Maine say Zorb New England, the Danville, N.H.-based promoter of a new amusement ride, was operating it without a permit when a newspaper reporter was seriously injured during a media preview of the device at Lost Valley Ski Resort. Rebekah Metzler, a reporter with the Sun Journal of Lewiston, fractured her back and bruised a kidney while riding a cushioned, car-sized inflatable ball called a Zorb. According to the Sun Journal, Zorb New England co-manager Jeremy Coito also acknowledged that his business is not associated with New Zealand-based Zorb Ltd., but maintained that "Zorbing is a generic trademark, a sport" and that he can rightfully use its name.
