Awesome experience and tonnes of fun. It was really relaxing soaking in hot spa tubs before and after every run/roll. Staff are very friendly and the photos at the end are hilarious! I can guarantee lots of laughs!

I'm in my 50's so viewed this attraction with a bit of trepidation when we went. You are essentially put into and then sent down a hill in a big plastic ball. You can do it 'dry' or 'wet'. It was a cold, wet day...More

Amazing fun!!! We just did two runs and wish we did twice as much! The cold and rainy weather didn’t bother us at all. While you wait to get in your OGO there are hot tubs so you’re never left standing in the cold. Friendly...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.
