n 1994, Andrew Akers and Dwane van der Sluis invented a big inflatable ball that people could jump inside and roll around in. Initially they thought they could use the ball for walking on water but they soon found they could have more fun rolling down hills in it. For 12 years Andrew ran the Zorb group of companies, developing the idea around the world, before selling out in 2006. Andrew and his brother David, have now developed the OGO to continue the vision. Set on a stunning 17 acre property overlooking Lake Rotorua and Mokoia Island you’ll find the home of OGO, just a 5 minute drive from Rotorua’s town centre and right next door to the famous Skyline Skyrides luge, Rainbow Springs and Mitai Maori Village.


Open from 9am to 5pm. 7 days a week.
