Overview

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.

A lot of fun and something pretty original to do! The zig zag track is a lot of fun and the straight one gets you good speed! Jacuzzi available on site while you're waiting for your next ride!

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.

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
