Tour Details


Take a wild and wacky ride in an Outdoor Gravity Orb (OGO) down a straight or curvy course. Slide around inside the inflatable ball in a water bath for a new type of thrill. Before you set off, your instructor explains how to ride in the OGO and enjoy the twists and turns as the ball rolls downhill. You will also get a hand-held go pro to document your ride. Choose from three different runs that promise lots of laughs and fun.

Know More about this tour

Head to the OGO Rotorua office to check in for your OGO adventure. The inflatable ball measures 11 feet (3m) in diameter with a 6 foot (2m) ball suspended inside the middle. It has fresh water inside the smaller ball so that you slip and slide as the water sloshes around during your ride. To make you comfortable inside the ball, the staff fills the OGO with warm water during the winter and cool water in the summer. In cooler months, you can relax and keep warm between rides in two on-site hot tubs.

To start your adventure, your guide takes you by truck from the office to the top of the hill. Then you are briefed for your ride as the ball is put into position. When you’re ready, hop into the inner part of the OGO, your momentum pushing the ball onto its downhill course. You have a choice of two courses: a straight track or a windy track.

The staff provides a hand-held go pro camera that you can use while in the OGO so that you can record the wacky fun. It gets warm inside the OGO ball but you can dip the camera in the water to keep it from fogging up.

A large groove has been dug out of the hill to make the track for the OGO course, ensuring that the ball rolls as expected. 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 the riders can slide out.

Choose from several options for the number of rides you’d like to try and the course you want to run. Bring your swimsuit and prepare to get wet on your ride—it’s all part of the fun!

  • 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 fun!!! Felt like a kid again! Staff was helpful and great!
    Can and #39;t wait to do it again!
    Loved it!

  • 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 kids and adults had a ball.

  • 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.

  • This was an awesome tour! Unfortunately we went on a rainy day but it was still really fun and a unique experience. The customer service was great as well. A must-do in Rotorua!

  • 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.
