  • Took kids for a Zorb. The service is excellent, but the attraction is a little bit dated now, and may have run its course.  more »

  • I really enjoyed going on the ZORBs. My wife got me to do it when I was skeptical but it was super fun. It only lasts a few minutes but it seems like forever in there. I wish the prices were lower, I would have done more runs down the mountain.
  • Unbelievably fun. It will look like a very short ride, but it feels like forever in the ball. Definitely suggest doing this, especially for kids or in the rain!
  • Good fun with friends. The wait is a little long, but good things come to those who wait. Not priced too badly for an attraction in Rotorua. Remember, "2 minutes in heaven are better than 1 minute in heaven" -Flight of the Concords"
  • We only got to do it once because of time constraints.. but it was so much fun!! Would do it again.
  • Super expensive for the length of the ride. Definitely not worth it when travelling on a low budget.
