ZORB loves Community

Our Team’s Commitment

One of the values we hold close to our hearts is our commitment to the community of Rotorua and wider New Zealand. There are a number of activities that we undertake throughout the year to ensure we are engaged and give back …even if it’s in a small way.


This is where we offer free of charge ZORB rides to our local community (with identification) in return for cans of food, which we then donate to the Rotorua Salvation Army in time for Christmas. This day always coincides with our birthday in December and a great way to celebrate!



Proudly supporting the Rotorua Salvation Army Christmas Appeal – exchange cans of food for ZORB rides!


Here’s what you need to bring!


  • 2 cans = 1x Straight Track ride for one person

Meet Pīrori! Our ZORB sponsored baby Kiwi, freshly hatched on 1st November 2019 at National Kiwi Hatchery Aotearoa here in Rotorua. We chose the name Pīrori because it means to roll along (just like our balls) and we just love our little baby!

Pīrori might be teeny tiny right now but in a couple of months time will be released back to the Karioi Rahui Forest which is home. We are proud to contribute to the amazing work the team at the National Kiwi Hatchery Aotearoa & Rainbow Springs Nature Park do in helping protect our famous Kiwi birds and thank you to all our visitors to ZORB that have donated money to this worthy cause!
