Karen and I have wanted to go for a roll ever since we saw Peter Gabriel do it in concert. We finally got our chance in Rotorua, NZ.
This is the longest OGO/Zorb run in the world, and they’re in the process of digging a longer one (so they can keep saying that).
As a special bonus, I’ll be posting the uncut footage of our OGO runs tomorrow, just in case you’re up for more watery fun.
Ken/Karen – that looks friggin’ awesome! I’m not sure I’ll be able to stomach the un-cut version…
Funny you should say that- there are two ways to OGO/Zorb. Either they pour water into it (which is fun, cuz you slip around uncontrollably) or they strap you into it (which means you’re rolling upside down or any which way). I’ll take the slip-slidey water version any day!
That OGO ride looked awesome! You guys looked like you had tons-o-fun!!
SOOOOO jealous! We joke about this in our office. How did it compare to the GBOB (great big outdoor ball) we have????? I think I need to spray water in it!
It was a wee more exciting than Andrew’s blue ball. It would be awesome to own one of the big ones. Just need to own a trailer and a large hill too!
I love the GBOB, too. For a kid, it’s just as good as an OGO, and you don’t have to dig up your yard to create a track.
This looks so awesome! I’m putting this on my bucket list! I laughed along with you! So nice to hear your giggles! BTW – Rotorua is where Kim (Jones) Tavendale’s hometown. You may see some of her peeps!
Darn, I did not remember that that was where Kim is from. We did not bump into any of her peeps…….that we know of. Someone mentioned there is a ZORB in WI Dells. Go for it Maria!
I can’t believe I was in Rotorua and missed this!!! Never even heard of it. Looks awesome! So glad you Ogo’d!
We couldn’t agree more with Kristine… we’re all still smiling & giggling along with you! Our whole crew is making a running list of things we’d like to do, just like you. Thanks for continuing to let us enjoy all your travels with you.
Glad we can contribute to your bucket list.
Where can I get one of those things…could come in handy on the sledding hill this winter!! Looks like a blast…..
Exactly, I want my own!
When you get one, I want to come over and play! You’ll have to dig up your yard a bit… or risk the kids OGOing down the hill and into the next county.
