The zorbing ball tumbled into existence in the mid-1990’s in New Zealand, thanks to Andrew Akers and Dwane van der Sluis, hitting the extreme sport scene in 1998.  Adventure West have now joined up with Andrew and David Akers to bring this adrenaline ride of a lifetime to Westport House.


We have worked closely with the original inventors of this crazy sport in designing our zorbing track and site, as they are also supplying us with the highest quality zorbing balls (OGOs) – the WEGO (harnessed) and H20G0 (hydro).


At Adventure West you can choose from two fun-filled OGO rides:


Hydro Zorbing: the tamer of the two rides, can be best described as an invigorating mixture of a waterslide and rollercoaster ride. This wet and wild experience involves one, two or three riders (depending on total weight) entering the OGO at the top of the hill, and we add in 20-25 litres of warm water. Then we secure the door closed and launch the OGO downhill. No dizziness, just good clean fun!


Harness Zorbing: the more extreme ride using OGO’s brand new style, suspended seat harnesses. These harnesses have 32 points of attachment to the ball to ensure that the rider is safely held and the harness has 6 attachment points around the body as well as hands and feet holds. One or two riders are securely harnessed inside the OGO before being sent rolling head over heels downhill to watch the grass and sky go spinning past.
