The ZYDRO™ ride is our most fun-filled ride! We throw you, up to two friends, and water (warm water in winter, and cold in summer) inside our ZORB® globe and send you on your way down the hill. Free inside the ZORB® globe, you the ZORBONAUT™, slip, slide, and spin inside the globe in an action packed, wet ride down the hill while the crowd below watches you laugh and scream your way down the hill.
Described by some as a cross between a water slide and a roller coaster, the ZYDRO™ ride is like nothing you've experienced before. We offer a variety of track options* with the ZYDRO™, straight fast tracks and designer tracks.
The Straight ZYDRO™ is a ZYDRO™ ride down our straight fast track. In this variation you can take up to two friends on your wild ride down the hill. A true bonding experience, the Straight ZYDRO™ is a great introduction to ZORB® globe riding and will leave you craving more!
Examples of our designer tracks:
If you want to step it up a notch, the Zig-Zag ZYDRO™ is for you. All alone inside the globe, your journey takes you down a track with twists, turns, Zigs and Zags that will have you sliding backwards, sideways and upsidedown. With a blurred view of the picturesque surroundings darting back and forth, this ride is definitely for those seeking a little more excitement in their life.
The Drop is Rotorua's newest and most adventurous track yet! Beginning with a leisurely roll to the edge of the hill followed by a vertical drop of approximately 25m into the unknown. With three deep switch-back corners built into it, The Drop provides thrills you won’t experience anywhere else!
