About
The experience of rolling down a hill inside a giant inflatable ball has been an iconic adventure experience since ZORB was invented at this very location way back in 1997! To this day, Rotorua is the ONLY location in New Zealand where you can experience this amazingly fun and bizarre bucket list activity. Please note as of 17 May 2019, ZORB Rotorua was recently purchased back by the original inventors of ZORB (Andrew and Dave Akers) the old ZORB site at 149 Western Road, Rotorua has been permanently closed and our new site (previously known as OGO Rotorua) and is undertaking a rebrand back to ZORB. Please bear in mind when reading old reviews! As the inventors and creators of ZORB, we are excited to have our brand back and our mission is to give every single customer world class customer service, health and safety and value for money when experiencing the ridiculous hilarity that is rolling down a hill in a giant inflatable ball.

Honestly didn’t think I would enjoy it as much as I did, rolling in laughter the whole time and had an absolute BLAST!

The best belly laughs I’ve had in years! This was such a fun, safe and easy adventure. It’s well organised and the staff are so friendly and helpful. The photographer takes the best photos. Highly recommend!

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.

What an amazing experience! Staff were wonderful with a great sense of humour. I still think the concept is incredibly strange but such a fun experience and not as scary as I thought it was when I was teetering on the edge of the hill. Great idea to have the hot spa and the go pro too. We will definitely be back!

All the kids had the best time hearing them giggling and laughing their way down the hill so fun! Spa pools to keep them warm at the top and bottom and a van to drive them up the hill! Changing rooms too! The photos were really good too! Thank you

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!

Kids 8 and 11 loved it. It was their best thing they did on our short break!
We will come back again when we are in the neighborhood!
