  • Great fun for a couple of quick rides down the hill. Can get a bit pricey if you want to have a few goes though.
  • 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!
  • The kids had a great time. Staff helpful and friendly
  • 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"
