Critics of the game have primarily expressed concerns over safety following the associated zorb tragedies and viral videos online.

Representatives of other companies have also noted that certain injuries are a uniform risk across every sport: twisted ankles, banged-up knees, etc, and that using bubbleballs is no different.
