The experience of rolling down a hill inside a giant inflatable ball has been an iconic adventure experience since Andrew and David Akers developed the first operation in the world in Rotorua back in 1997. Rotorua remains the ONLY location in New Zealand where you can experience this amazingly fun and bizarre activity.With a new site just 5 minutes from the town centre with a hill that is almost twice as long, you can ride with 1, 2 or 3 people inside the same H2OGO (with warm water in winter or cool water in summer),race against your friends, or try the Harness OGO where you are securely strapped in and sent rolling head over heels through the trees down our custom designed harness track.OR … try our BRAND NEW ride; THE FISHPIPE!A new and unique type of water ride where you slide for over 600 metres! Further than the longest water-slide in the world!Up to 3 riders, 75 litres (20 gallons) of water and a barrel that spins at up to 45 revolutions per minute (although we can slow it right down for the kids and those of you with nervous dispositions.)If you’re riding solo, you can slide, try to run inside, or even try surfing on your feet. With 2 or 3 riders inside you slip and slide together in a tangled mess ... backwards, sideways, frontwards, upside-downwards and whose-foot-is-that-in-my-mouthwards.Open 364 days from 9:00 to 5:00pm in all weather conditions, do not miss out on this unique New Zealand invention. No bookings necessary.

You must do zorb if you are visiting Rotorua. I chose to have H2OGO - Sidewinder Track. It was $60. The experience was awesome. They have a heated pool where you can sit while you wait for your turn. I recommend doing sidewinder, it's much...More

Took our girls (8 and 11) to try this H2Ogo out on a cold winter's morning. They loved the experience and we are likely to visit again in the near future. No waiting around as the crew was all set up to go and take...More

Fantastic, friendly and helpful staff who were very easy to talk to. Side winder track was lots of fun. Definitely returning for a visit next trip.

Plan on the three run package. The curved course is best. Better with a second person inside. Strap a waterproof camera to your wrist or ankle. Have fun and don't throw-up. Pretty much the same as Zorb but do your own research.

Was apprehensive about this but turned out to be the funniest thing we did all weekend. The wet ogo was great and so enjoyable had a great laugh. Kids had a great time also would recommend to all to give it a go. Thanks ogo

This was just good old fun and definitely worth it. Best activity we spent for in Rotorua. Go with a friend/partner if you can as two in the ball is more fun. The track that goes side to side is better and lasts longer. This...More

We were worried that we would freeze doing the wet tracks but the hot tubs at the bottom and the top as well as the heaters in the changing rooms kept us warm. Inside the balls was heaps of fun, I could probably do it...More

This was seriously so much fun. We're glad we chose Ogo as the staff was absolutely amazing as were the courses. The video/photo packages are reasonably priced as well. My wife and I rode together three times (H2O); twice on the sidewinder and once on...More

Great experience. Definitely recommend doing it with water. You can chill in the hottie so you don't get cold

Hi AnitaJ387 ... As Marla correctly says; it would be no problem for you and your husband to swap child caring duties while you each ride. Alternatively we have a number of staff on site who LOVE children. If you and your... More

2 people at a time. My daughter's plan to ride me like a boogie board failed. We just fell over each other and laughed the whole time.
