This was the first time I've ever been zorbing and it was so much fun!! The 3 different routes make it even better too as there's variety to pick from. The staff are all lovely and I love that there's a hot tub here makes it even better! Could have stayed and zorbed all day!!!!

I've always wanted to Zorb so... I did! The staff was friendly and made me amped about the drop. I tried all three versions of their drops and recommend the Zig-Zag.

I'd never heard of zorbing before, but everyone said it was amazing and I absolutely had to try it. I found a discount online and decided to give it a go (honestly, I don't think I would've paid $40 for it, which it is at the location). Watching from the ground I was a bit skeptical, it did look a... More

I laughed the whole time I was bounced around. I purchased the video - well worth the price. You can ride alone or with someone.

7 of us went zorbing together, and of the 7, 4 people had so much fun they signed up for more rides and loved all of them. 3 people did it once and decided once was fine. It wasn't that it wasn't fun, just underwhelming. But definitely something to try at least once! This place was good fun because they... More

You HAVE TO try zorbing while in Rotorua! Just think there are only 2 places in the World where you can do it: Rotorua and the Smoky Mountains in the USA and it would be absolutely a shame not having a go! Zorbing means rolling down a slope inside a plastic ball, with or without water (if the weather is... More

This was a super fun event to do but we did spend ages deciding whether paying the money for one ride that would last maybe 1-2minutes was worth it. Answer - it was to say we have done it. enjoyed the thrill, but it is not good money for value.

Kia Ora!! Thank you for your feedback! Zorb NZ is not a Buffet Style activity, but a unique, once in a life time adventure! Whilst there is some cost to our activity, we are longer than a Bungy Jump, shorter than a Skydive and at least $150 cheaper than either! Thank you again for visiting! More

The service was good and friendly. My son had great fun and went for a second round. A bit pricey, though.
