Agrodome Adventures offers free shuttle service from Rotorua and offers bungy, helipro, freefall xtreme, swoop, agrojet and zorb activities. I opted for the package the offered the last three for NZ101. Zorbing alone is NZ25.

A zorb is large clear plastic ball that rolls downhill 200 meters with you inside. You have the option of zorbing in a dry zorb where you are harnessed in, obviously going upside down and other directions or you can opt for wet zorbing. Wet zorbing is where several buckets of water are tossed in with you and you are not strapped in. Because the weather was a bit windy, only the wet option was offered to me. I didn’t even think about the fact that in the wet version the ball revolves around you, as you slide in the water. You don’t get turned upside down at all, but the humidity makes it a little stuffy to breathe inside. You also have the option of the straight course or zigzag. The ride is over very quickly and nothing I would bother to repeat.

The agrojet ride is a high-speed boat ride around a small course at full throttle with tight turns and narrow passageways. Vital stats: 450 horsepower 400 cubic inch 6.7 liter jet propelled 13 ft race boat 100 kpm in 4.5 sec You are driven at high speed 4 times around the course seemingly to just miss the banks, as you’ll notice in the pictures. The look in the driver’s face shows how intense the driving concentration required. Although I’d love to drive it myself, I’d have to go considerably slower.
