What to expect
Check in for your orbing adventure at the ZORB office in Rotorua where you’ll be transferred by truck to the top of a hill. Before climbing inside the Outdoor Gravity Orb — an 11-foot-diameter (3-meter) inflatable ball — you’re given safety instructions for optimal riding.  Then step inside a smaller ball suspended within the ZORB and prepare for the ride of a lifetime as you use momentum to push the ball toward its downhill course. Use a hand-held go pro camera to record the wacky expedition! At the bottom of the run, the ball slows to a stop on flat turf, while ZORB staff catch it and position it so that you and up to two other riders can disembark. Select from several options for the type of course and number of rides you want. Choose a straight track or a twisty track, with a harness or with fresh water sloshing around inside.  If you choose one of the H2OGO options, bring your swimsuit and prepare to get wet on your ride as you slip and slide. In summer, the orb is filled with cool water; during winter months, enjoy warm water and relax between rides in two on-site hot tubs.

Pricey but fun!
Apr 2021 • Family
This is an awesome place and the staff are so friendly! We arrived at approx 2pm on a Saturday and it is quiet??!?! No lines but the staff didn’t rush you to hurry up! They let you relax for 15-20 mins between each ride in the hot tub and they were so friendly and really got us excited!

A couple of things though!!

It can get REALLY expensive! So I would recommend making this your one activity for the day and paying for three rides each!

You should go together! It’s super fun being with family! It’s fun going by yourself but it can get a bit lonely if that makes sense! Being in groups helps you all experience and enjoy it!
Although I think they should make it a zorb per person for example if two of you went together that should be one persons turn and then you have another go together for the other persons turn etc because you all three go together (1 zorb), instead of having a zorb each and going separately (3 zorbs).

But it’s super fun for some quick entertainment and we will definitely be back!

Such great fun with the mega sorting my speed demon desires. Everything is well set out and the team are very organised. I did the rides twice over two days they were that good!

Mediocre Experience
Pre-purchased 2x 3-ride packages, as we planned on the kids using two of the rides each, and us parents would use one ride each. Unfortunately, when we arrived we were advised that they don't allow sharing. So just be aware of that little restriction if that's what you're planning. So... the kids ended up taking all three rides. They did enjoy it (they said it was about a 6 out of 10), but they said the van that transported them to the top of the hill had a really strong urine smell about it, which really put them off. They weren't even that keen to go up for their final Zorb ride.

They have two hot tubs that people can use between Zorb rides, but one of them was basically cold, and the other was warm, but there were no bubbles or warm water circulating in it.

We'd only rate the overall experience about a 4 out of 10. It was just okay, but not what I consider to be value for money, so wouldn't bother going again.

We absolutely loved this, which explains why we came back again and again during our week in Rotorua.

All the team were positive and excited about the experience and made our visits.

Thank you - this is really special especially the sidewinder.

Fun and enjoyable
Jan 2021 • Family
Loved the experience and fun of the Zorb activity. Completed 3 different routes with my 9yr old and we both loved it. The day we went was really hot, so the ball gets quite warm inside.
Staff were really friendly and helpful. Well organised and not a lot of queuing the day we went.
Would highly recommend.
