Dropped into the Zorb on the way to the hot springs with my 13 year old son and he had a blast. He was too short to be strapped in but I managed to find a pair of togs in the bottom of his back-pack and he did the wet ride - 3 times..... They also have a hot tub where you can wait for your ride and warm up afterwards. They were doing some renovations while we were there so the facilities should improve from the demountables and outside loo that are currently there. A bit more merchandise and even a little coffee shop would be great - maybe when we return.

This was one of many experiences we did in Rotorua during school holidays. It was the middle of July and bitterly cold so you would expect that there would be something to keep the customers who do the wet rides, warm, in between what was a long wait for the truck to take them up the hill. There is a spa outside that we had assumed was to keep warm in, however the water was cold in it!! So people are left to crowd around a tiny heater to keep warm if they want another ride. We also found the staff most unhelpful. They expected you to know the procedure and explained nothing about the different tracks or ride types. Of all the many experiences we did in Rotorua I would have to put this at the bottom purely for lack of organisation and staff helpfulness and unfriendliness. Also very expensive for such a short ride. Sorry but we wont be back.

Amazing, unique experience. Definitely preferred the straight track down the hill to the windy track!

Went along to Zorb the weekend before last after spending a few days in Rotorua Was a great end to a weekend of miserable weather. I was apprehensive to start with and insisted we watch a few others roll down the hill before we (my boyfriend and I) decided to do it. We opted for the 'Double Trouble - wet ride'. Was a bit of a wait in the cold winter weather both before and after heading up the hill but was a lovely welcome to jump into the blown up ball filled with warm water. Was all totally worth it for the experience of rolling down the hill, like a hamster on a running wheel mixed with a washing machine, would defo do it again! I screamed and laughed the whole way down. Staff couldn't have been nicer and we were offered our photos for free, due to having to wait a while in the cold ( we found out they were a little short-staffed that day) - was a lovely bonus to finish off with. Also thought the price was okay in comparison to some other activities we have done in NZ. Overall would totally recommend this to anyone of any age looking for something fun and completely different.

A bit pricey considering the short duration of the ride and the lack of facilities for wet and cold customers after the experience. A great time nonetheless.
