Beat the winter chills at ZORB Rotorua

Obviously ZORB rides are a fantastic option in winter, we are an all-weather activity and have plenty of options to keep warm during and after your rides!

We know the cold can often be a massive barrier for people when deciding on activities to do here at ZORB Rotorua so we have numerous ways in which you can stay nice and toasty whilst having the time of your lives riding down the LONGEST and FASTEST downhill ball rolling rides in the entire world.

There are also heaters in all the changing rooms to keep you warm while you’re getting into your togs. Wrap up warm in a blanket while waiting for your ride to the top of the hill! At the top of the hill, we have a hot tub to soak in before embarking on your ZORB ride.

All H2OGO rides have roughly 20-30 litres of warm water so you are nice and warm throughout the duration of your ride, whilst most people once rolling tend to forget about the temperature of the water anyways.

In between rides, we have 2 brand new cedarwood hot tubs which have been made by the Owners of ZORB. Feel free to relax in the hot tubs whilst you comprehend what it is that you just experienced. The Hot Tubs are anywhere from 38-40 degrees, so you don’t have to worry about being cold while you’re wet

Over the past year we have created a new heated room for you all to enjoy as another option when the hot tubs are full or if you aren’t a fan of hot soaking which is again another ZORB made creation carefully constructed by the legend himself Dave Akers.

For spectators there is a pot belly fire on the deck and a couple of patio heaters to keep warm. We also have delicious barista coffee to top off the experience or even for spectators to enjoy whilst watching on.

DARKEST NIGHT

Twinkling in the winter sky just before dawn, Matariki (the Pleiades) signals the Māori New Year. Matariki is noted as a time for celebration, joy and growth and is a special time for communities to come together and celebrate.

It is during this time that we also host the ever-popular DARKEST NIGHT event here at ZORB Rotorua. The only night of the year where we operate ZORB rides in the dark and will have the site lit just enough so you all can still vast in the beauty that is Matariki. So come and experience Matariki with us and see it from our perspective.

We paired up with our mates at The Kai Company which offered delicious food and our friends from Terrace Catering are brought their Mobile Bar which helped to create a really epic evening to celebrate Matariki. For those that couldn’t make the event, don’t worry stay tuned into our socials for more interesting events coming up in the future.
