Education outside the classroom

ZORB is a popular destination for school groups and educational field trips when you are wondering what to see in Rotorua, offering study material for various types of projects that appeal to children of all ages. We are an active member of the Rotorua Education Network (REN) – a first-of-its-kind tourism collective solely dedicated to the education industry. All REN members have a curriculum-based educational component to their product or have an added value component to their core service, specifically developed for education groups – learn more about REN here.

The inventors and developers of the activity are owner/operators of ZORB and are available on site to talk about all aspects of their ideas and developments. We have a wealth of experience in developing a new and unique adventure tourism experience from scratch and creating a product, brand and activity that is now known throughout the world. We also have the ZORB factory onsite – custom made factory tours can also be arranged for a first hand behind the scenes insight in the manufacturing of our ZORB balls –  truly NZ made!

We offer special packages, complimentary factory tours and education workshops for our visiting school groups  – email us on bookings@zorb.com with the details of your education group.

We can tailor make education workshops for all ages and education levels on the following subjects:

  • Tourism
  • Geography
  • Economics and Business
  • Design and Invention
  • Physics and Mathematics
  • Sustainability and our care of the environment

Let us know what your educational requirements are and we can tailor-make an experience to suit. Catered lunches from BBQ’s through to Pita Pit lunch options are also available to keep the kids hunger pains at bay. Alternatively, bring your own snacks and enjoy our terraced area for a picnic overlooking the park. If you would like to know more about how we can accommodate your education group please email us on bookings@zorb.com

The people have spoken and we’re thrilled to announce that we’ve been nominated for the NZME People’s Choice Award at the Tompkins Wake 2022 Business Awards! It would be rude not to give the people want they want, so make sure you vote for us in the link in our bio ✌️⭐️🏆#zorbrotorua #rotoruanz #rotoruabusinessawards #vote #awards
