Enjoy an iconic New Zealand adventure experience in Rotorua!

Rotorua is known for its beautiful natural landscapes, and the ZORB ride allows you to enjoy the scenery as you roll downhill. The rides are often set in scenic locations with panoramic views of the surrounding mountains, forests, or lakes, enhancing the overall experience.

ZORB Inflatable Ball Rides offer an exhilarating and unique experience that allows you to roll down a hill inside a large, transparent inflatable ball. 

You can choose from a single, double or triple ride option when you are booking this experience. Experience one or multiple wild and wacky downhill rides!

ZORB offers different types of balls for their rides. The two main options are the Zydro (wet) and the Zorbit (dry) balls. The Zydro ball is filled with water, creating a cushioning layer that allows you to slip and slide as you roll downhill. The Zorbit ball, on the other hand, is dry and provides a smoother ride.

On warm days, opt for a H2OGO (wet) ride! You will slip, slide and laugh your way down the slope. The specially designed ball means you will remain right-side up and not get dizzy.

On cold days, stay warm in the H2OGO with warm water used for the rides. Hot spas will keep you toasty in between rides, an outdoor fire will pump serious warmth, and there will be heated changing rooms for afterwards. Delicious coffee made by baristas will also be available on-site. 

If you are looking for family friendly things to do, this is a fun experience for kids and adults alike!

Rolling down a hill inside a giant inflatable ball can provide a thrilling adrenaline rush. The sensation of rolling, spinning, and bouncing as you descend the track creates a unique and exciting experience that is bound to leave you with lasting memories.


The History Around Zorbing

Zorbing, also known as globe-riding or sphereing, is a thrilling adventure activity that originated in New Zealand and is particularly popular in Rotorua. 

In fact, Rotorua is the only location in New Zealand where you can take on this amazingly fun and bizarre activity, suitable for individuals, friends, and families looking for an unforgettable experience.

ZORB has specially designed tracks or slopes where the balls roll. The tracks are typically grassy and well-maintained, providing a smooth and controlled ride. Depending on the location and package you choose, there may be different track options available, such as straight tracks or zigzagging tracks.

Before your ride, you'll receive a safety briefing and be provided with safety equipment such as a harness or straps to secure yourself inside the ball. Trained staff will be present throughout the experience to ensure your safety and guide you through the process.

Remember to wear comfortable clothing and shoes that can get wet if you choose the Zydro ball option. It's also advisable to check the age and weight restrictions, as well as any other specific requirements, before booking your ZORB ride.
