Check in for your orbing adventure at the OGO office in Rotorua where you’ll be transferred by truck to the top of a hill. Before climbing inside the Outdoor Gravity Orb — an 11-foot-diameter (3-meter) inflatable ball — you’re given safety instructions for optimal riding.
Then step inside a smaller ball suspended within the OGO and prepare for the ride of a lifetime as you use momentum to push the ball toward its downhill course. Use a hand-held go pro camera to record the wacky expedition! At the bottom of the run, the ball slows to a stop on flat turf, while OGO staff catch it and position it so that you and up to two other riders can disembark.
Select from several options for the type of course and number of rides you want. Choose a straight track or a twisty track, with a harness or with fresh water sloshing around inside.
If you choose one of the H2OGO options, bring your swimsuit and prepare to get wet on your ride as you slip and slide. In summer, the orb is filled with cool water; during winter months, enjoy warm water and relax between rides in two on-site hot tubs.
