Zorb Rotorua


Adventure activities

You, the soon-to-be zorbanaut, have a number of zany zorbing options at this Kiwi-born escapade. The hectic hill-rolling bubbles were invented here and continue to diversify. Choose from the original harness ride Zorbit, the Zorb-tri-riffic ride or the 'wash cycle' Zydro (you and the zorb plus water - warm in winter, cool in summer). Absolutely barmy and hilarious fun.

Zorb Rotorua
  • Prices: Zydro, $49 or $81 with wet pack; Zorbit, $59 or $91 with wet pack; Zorb-tri-riffic or any three rides $108 or $140 with wet pack. (The wet pack consists of t-shirt, shorts, towel and a bag to ut it all in, or you can just bring your own.)

Tajo Ostrich Farm



Ostriches are bizarre, beautiful birds... and huge (at 2m tall they certainly tower over me). Here you can feed the adults (if you can reach) take a farm-tour trailer ride and watch chicks hatching. An on-site farm shop is stocked with everything ‘ostrich’ from ostrich leather handbags to ostrich-oil hand cream.
