Rolling into Rotorua..11:39 AM on Thu 12 Jan 2012

New Zealand is full of cheap adrenaline packed activities for the thrill seeking backpacker - OGO Rotorua being one of them.

Most days you will find me booking cheap trips for Backpackers at the Base Auckland hostel Travel desk.  Other days you will find me running around the country jumping out of planes, rolling down hills, climbing mountains......

OGO rotorua

Last week I was very spoilt by the OGO team in Rotorua. The OGO is the next generation of rolling people down hills in massive inflatable balls.

They offer 3 different awesome runs to go down - and I got to try all 3.  I started with the FISHPIPE and the H2OGO which I did in a tandem with my friend, such a cool experience.

Finally I gave the new ZIG ZAG track a go!! Was epic, heaps of twists and turns and highly recomended.

My favourite would have to be the H2OGO, you’re literally in this massive bouncy ball being thrown around with your mate finding it hard to breathe from all the laughter!

There is an option where you can race each other in separate OGO’s, but we were informed by staff that it’s much more enjoyable in the same OGO, we didn’t look back as it turned out bloody awesome!

Thanks to the crew at OGO, such a great day!
