Attraction details
Recommended length of visit: <1 hour
Owner description: The experience of rolling down a hill inside a giant inflatable ball has been an iconic adventure experience since Andrew and David Akers developed the first operation in the world in Rotorua back in 1997. Rotorua remains the ONLY location in New Zealand where you can experience this amazingly fun and bizarre activity.With a new site just 5 minutes from the town centre with a hill that is almost twice as long, you can ride with 1, 2 or 3 people inside the same H2OGO (with warm water in winter or cool water in summer),race against your friends, or try the Harness OGO where you are securely strapped in and sent rolling head over heels through the trees down our custom designed harness track.OR … try our BRAND NEW ride; THE FISHPIPE!A new and unique type of water ride where you slide for over 600 metres! Further than the longest water-slide in the world!Up to 3 riders, 75 litres (20 gallons) of water and a barrel that spins at up to 45 revolutions per minute (although we can slow it right down for the kids and those of you with nervous dispositions.)If you’re riding solo, you can slide, try to run inside, or even try surfing on your feet. With 2 or 3 riders inside you slip and slide together in a tangled mess ... backwards, sideways, frontwards, upside-downwards and whose-foot-is-that-in-my-mouthwards.Open 364 days from 9:00 to 5:00pm in all weather conditions, do not miss out on this unique New Zealand invention. No bookings necessary.

Our kids had a couple of hours to spare so decided to go to the Ogo after our hosts at the motel suggested it. They had an absolute ball (lol!!) and they thought it was worth the price. Need to take along bathers or a change of clothes as you do get wet!

“Awesome Family fun!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 15, 2012

I took my two boys on this today - they had so much fun they ended up having 3 turns - despite initial trepidation :-) The guys running it were very cool, gave really good discount for multiple turns and could not have been more helpful. OGO is by far the best deal and the friendly helpful staff made this a must do again experience - thanks alot guys!!

“So much fun its addictive!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 15, 2012 via mobile

Rocked up here to try something new as i heard this was the longest of its kind around. They convinced me it was better to try it with water in the ball and they were right. Nothing can describe how much fun this is. Just be prepared to laugh a hell of a lot.

We were advised by the Agroventures team to book with OGO Rotorua as they had the longest track in the world so we did. It was incredible! The staff were friendly and there were quite a few people there but you would probably only have to wait 20mins max. Also it's in a good location 5mins drive from the city. Me and my BF were so happy we bought the video (from the inside experience) and photos taken after. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
