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.

Annual Rotorua Locals Day

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!

  • All rides are H2OGO (water) rides.
  • Bring along swimsuit and towel.
  • No pre-booking required, all rides run on demand.
  • Open from 9.00am -5.00pm
