“Sweet as!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2012

The ride was really fun!! I opted for the wet one and felt like sitting in a washing machine (but of course at a different level lol). Would definitely come back!

“Good ride!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

Having done a ride years ago, i opted to do a dry tumble. It was very interesting and fun. Glad it only lasted a little...otherwise i would have gotten dizzy. Staff were friendly and informative. Would recommend doing at least once if you are in new zealand! Just jump in and roll...

Hi Jaime!
Thanks for taking the time to write a review! Great that you enjoyed your second visit to ZORB!
Awesome that you tried a different ride this time around!
ZORB is definitely something you have to do when visiting New Zealand! We have sites overseas as well with 3 open in the US and more to come! Make sure you keep an eye out and possibly ZORB over there sometime!

Thanks!

“Good fun experience - Well worth doing”

Great experience, Nice bunch of operators. COLD Tho! Get the heater ready in the car afterwards.
Well worth doing if you haven't before. Keep an eye out in the airport for vouchers...

Heya!
Glad to hear you had a great time when you came to visit! Good to hear that you found some of our coupons at the Airport!
You will have to come back sometime once Summer has hit and enjoy the rides in the bright sunshine on a warm day!
Cheers,

“Great fun”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Staff were very helpful and the ride was really fun. We did the wet zig zag track and it was well worth it! The water was warm as it was a relatively cold day so that was nice. The actual ride was a lot more thrilling than I expected. The ride itself doesn't last long enough though for my liking, considering the price of the ride.. It's a bummer photos cost extra too! Definitely an experience you need to try!

“Rough and Tumble but Fun!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012

Zorb leads you to believe you are taking a fun wet ride down a hill in a water sloshed ball and that’s true, they just leave out the part where you feel like you’ve literally been through a washing machine cycle that includes speed bumps. After three runs down the hill I was physically exhausted but it was still a lot of fun. The whole operation is literally a trailer, a hill and an old LandRover to drive you up the hill. Great activity for a rainy day too!

Hi Catherine! We are happy to hear that you had such fun when you visited our site! Sounds like the weather wasn't fabulous for you but you had a great time anyway! We are proud of the way that we operate and the use of our unique Zorbulator that transports our globes up to the top of the hill definitely makes things quicker, easier and more efficient! We hope that you come back to visit us sometime in the future! Or possibly even one of our overseas sites! If you have any further comments please contact our sales rep on emma_hanson@zorb.com
