Warning-the dry option is only available in the winter. If going in the summer, bring a bathing suit or be prepared to rent one.

Pros:
Great fun ride down, a unique experience. Friendly staff, convenient transport to the hill and they have hot tubs to wait in.

Cons:
Very pricey, each ride down is a few short minutes. Can get backed up when they're busy with longer waits during peak hours.

I recommend for thrill seekers looking for a great experience and willing to pay big bucks for the once in a lifetime experience to roll down a hill in a ball.

We saw this activity years ago on the US version of "The Amazing Race". We have always wanted to go to New Zealand and this activity was on our list of must do activities. It was everything I had hoped for and more!! We had so much fun sloshing down the hill in a huge inflatable ball!! We were even able to race against the kids on one of the hills. We totally recommend the wet version and share your tube with family and friends so you can enjoy the experience together!! The company even makes the ride up the hill just as fun! Prepare to get wet, have fun and enjoy the beautiful views of Lake Rotorua! Highly recommend!! We took our children ages 13, 11 and 9 and each of them thought this was an amazing experience!! The staff was so friendly and kind and went out of their way to make sure everyone had a great time!!

My family of 7 went Zorbing last well and had an absolute blast.
We all laughed so much and enjoyed our time, so much so that we all went back for more.
At first we were surprised at the price. Having 7 in the family it was very expensive so we chose to only ride twice each. Once we did the two initial rides we were having too much fun to stop so we all had another ride.
The staff were fun, helpful and very personable.
It was a great time, a little bit expensive but worth it.

This expensive thrill is over in 2 minutes its only fractionally cheaper if 2 people go in the zorb . They had 10 staff and no one told us there is a spa to use after .We recieved an email about logging on to get our photos which doesnt work .When contacted they said they would email a drop box link but still nothing .Over staffed over priced and poorly run .

The MOST fun we had on our entire holiday! Everyone was really helpful & eventhough the weather was cold the staff advised us that it would be super hot inside the zorb & it was! But we didn't have time to think about anything once we started rolling....& screaming at the same time. FUN! FUN! FUN! Definitely a MUST-DO! & we recommend buying the photos & videos.

We had never been Zorbing before so didn’t know what to expect—but were highly impressed! The location is beautiful and overlooks the Rotorua water, and is on a beautiful hill. The staff is great and so efficient! The location even provides hot tubs down the hill and above so that you stay warm after getting in the zorb ball with cold water.

Tips:
-Bring a swimsuit and towel. They provide towels but at a price
-Buy at least 2 Zorb rides —one lasts a total of 1 minute and you’ll be disappointed if you don’t do at least a few rides
-They take photos for you, but they charge you for it. $30 for just pics and $50 for pics + video. But I think you can just bring your waterproof camera if you want pics for free.

We did this on a whim as recommended by some locals and it was awesome. We opted for the VIP so we could get our photos and videos. It was the silliest time and we could not stop laughing and screaming in delight. Truly a great experience!!! Not scary at all, only pure joy!

My son loved Zorb. He wasn’t sure about it at first so we got one dry ride, but loved it so ended up going on another 3 x rides with water in the ball. The spa whilst people are waiting to go on the ride is a great touch, as is the heaters for the spectators. The ride is a must do for those that like this sort of thing. The photos the staff take are great and I’d recommend you getting them too.
