We were so excited for it and it was a big turn off. You dont feel anything once inside it. U r in one position only. There are so many thrilling things in newzealand and this is nothing. Our money got wasted doing this .

A must do in New Zealand! Even in the wet, rainy, grey-clouded weather, this was a great experience. They make sure the water in the zorbs is nice and warm, and have the hot tubs ready to go for you. Definitely go for the 4...More

Paid for single ride initially but our girls (11 and 13 years old) loved it so much that they went for the second ride. Weather was good and the water inside was warm enough to have some wet fun rolling down the track. Would recommend...More

You can go there anytime during the day, but I suggest you check their open hour from OGO Rotorua page on TripAdvisor. It's different at different season.
