ZORB Rotorua

Superman dive into a giant inflatable ball and roll down Mt Ngongotaha with ZORB where the fun will have you laughing uncontrollably.

Owned and operated by the Kiwi inventors, discover FOUR different ball rolling tracks – the world’s longest zig-zag Sidewinder Track, the smooth ‘n’ fast double Straight Track, MEGA Track – the longest, fastest and steepest track in all the land, and the newest track; Big Air, our latest thrill ride.

The experience of rolling down a hill inside a giant inflatable ball has been an iconic adventure experience since Andrew and David Akers invented and developed the first operation in the world back in 1997 on this very site!  To this day, Rotorua remains the ONLY location in New Zealand where you can experience this amazingly fun and bizarre activity.

In winter, never fear – you won’t get cold at ZORB with hot spas to keep toasty in between rides, an outdoor fire pumping serious warmth, heated changing rooms for afterwards and delicious barista made coffee on-site too. Or choose to ride dry with DRYGO a fantastic alternative over those chilly months.

Located just 5 minutes North of the Rotorua city centre, ZORB features spectacular views over Lake Rotorua and Mokoia Island. Open year-round, in all-weather ZORB is a unique NZ must do that is excitement for everyone from 5 years of age!

Education Outside The Classroom

ZORB is a popular destination for school groups and educational field trips when you are wondering what to see in Rotorua, offering study material for various types of projects that appeal to children of all ages.

The inventors and developers of the activity are owner/operators of ZORB and are available on site to talk about all aspects of their ideas and developments. We have a wealth of experience in developing a new and unique adventure tourism experience from scratch and creating a product, brand and activity that is now known throughout the world. We also have the ZORB factory onsite – custom made factory tours can also be arranged for a first-hand behind the scenes insight in the manufacturing of our ZORB balls – truly NZ made!

We can tailor make education workshops for all ages and education levels on the following subjects:

  • Tourism
