You HAVE TO try zorbing while in Rotorua! Just think there are only 2 places in the World where you can do it: Rotorua and the Smoky Mountains in the USA and it would be absolutely a shame not having a go! Zorbing means rolling down a slope inside a plastic ball, with or without water (if the weather is... More

This was a super fun event to do but we did spend ages deciding whether paying the money for one ride that would last maybe 1-2minutes was worth it. Answer - it was to say we have done it. enjoyed the thrill, but it is not good money for value.

The service was good and friendly. My son had great fun and went for a second round. A bit pricey, though.

The ride is expensive for being so short, and it had the potential to be a ton of fun, but my experience was very poor due to a serious safety problem. When you climb into the Zorb, there's a hole with two doors that they zip up so that the ball is sealed and your body parts don't go flying... More

We have been zorbing on our way down to Taupo and stopped in Rotorua, as we have never done it before. It was very cool and lots of fun! Would really recommend it, even if I think it is very expensive for the time you spend there. Awesome experience, but better to wait for another grab one voucher!

Booked a zorb to do something out of my comfort zone. Booked a Grabone deal which was awesome as wouldn't have been keen on full price. I was so scared and had a lot of question. The staff were very lovely and helpful. I did it but wouldn't do again purely because I don't like confined spaces and being disoriented.... More

I know there is more than one place to go Zorbing so I can't speak for the others but this is the original. We found coupons online (which was suggested by the staff when I emailed them prior to our trip) to make it a little more cost efficient. Fun and highly recommended especially for the adventurous kid (or adult!)
