Prepare for some original splashing, rolling fun with a globe riding experience in Rotorua that will take you on a tumbling ride inside a water-filled ball. Take one part hollow ball, one part water, and one part individual or friends, mix them together, throw them down a hill and you've got globe riding - a truly unique and popular activity suitable for the whole family. Choose from a number of different "styles" of ride including standard straight, curving sidewinder or even a dry run that removes the water (ideal for cooler months) as you're set on a downhill course that involves both adrenaline and plain, pure fun. Water in the balls is kept warm in cooler periods, so you don't have to fret about any unnecessary chills too!

Cap it off with some relaxing in the hot spa facilities, and you've got some of the wettest fun to be had on land in the Rotorua region. Good for adults and kids alike, if you're looking for a Rotorua activity that takes a break from all the standard geothermal and historical attractions, don't miss the chance for some crazy, splashy, rolling fun - book yourself an ogo experience in Rotorua on the world's twistiest track online today.

FAQs

Is the water cold?

The water we put inside the OGO’s is warm in winter and cool in summer – approx. 40 litres to be precise. We also have toasty warm hot tubs at the top and bottom of the hill for you to enjoy. Heaters and hairdryers in the changing rooms, delicious barista coffee and free Wi-Fi you won’t even notice its winter outside.

What if I dont want to get wet?

Our latest creation straight from the factory is the DRYGO – available on both our Straight and Sidewinder tracks. Same thrills as the H2OGO but the special double skin means you stay nice and dry.

The DRYGO ride is weather dependent – it can get hot inside the DRYGO, so in warmer months the ride may not always be available. If not, our H2OGO water ride is a great alternative – this is our most popular ride year-round (with warm water on cooler days) and we are happy to turn any DRYGO bookings into H2OGO rides at no extra cost.

Can children ride by themselves?

As long as your child is over our age restriction of 5 years old then they can ride inside the OGO by themselves. For the younger kiddies we do recommend riding with an adult or other kids, it’s always more fun riding with others!

Will we bump into each other?

The nature of the ride is like a giant waterslide, you won’t bump into or hurt each other.
