Return Details

Returns to original departure point
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.

I had fun however the dry ball ride is not as advertised. If you book it, best to go in the morning, otherwise they will cancel it once temperatures increase as the ball becomes too hot. Because of less water, you only have one option which is the straight track to supposedly help with any wind factors. They took photos but didn't outfit me with a Gopro as I expected. Arrange to take the bus, Friday is free, taxis are expensive.

So much fun! Definitely unique and awesome experience. Even though the sidewinder is longer I still enjoyed the straight line track much more. Be careful of the zipper area, it can scratch you during the sidewinder course.

The best thing we did in NZ per my teenage boys. Higher rates than Black water labyrinth tour or parasailing or the luges at the top of the gondola. Fun family activity and owner was very friendly and accommodating.

It was a lot of fun. The staff was friendly and talked us through what types of ball rides they offer. We opted to do the dry ball ride because it was rather cold outside and well, we're from Florida. Once we got into the ball and handed us a gopro camera to film the experience, they added the water in the space between the ball we were in and the outer ball. The water sloshing around during our ride made it a lot of fun. I would recommend this activity, it was awesome and the video of our experience is hilarious.
