New Zealand’s first 20 passenger helium balloon.
Based in the iconic tourist town of Rotorua, Orbserver is a 20m helium filled balloon that takes passengers up on a 150m exhilerating adventure, providing spectacular views of Rotorua below.
Orbserver is open 7 days a week, weather permitting, leaving the ground every 10 – 20 minutes.
Rides go up to 150 meters (500 feet) and last between 10 – 20 minutes. A pilot is on board at all times, with a secondary controller at ground level.
If you are looking for something even more exciting, then you may want to try ‘Orbster’: This ride takes you outside the gondola in a harness, hanging from the ORBSERVER’s suspension ropes.
The orbserver balloon is hand-crafted in the USA to strict quality control procedures and is the only 20-passenger tethered Helium balloon available world-wide.
Orbserver has the ideal location, easily accessible as you head in or out of Rotorua. Plus with the ride duration being only 10 – 20 minutes, it allows visitors plenty of time to enjoy on any of your Rotorua exploring days.
Summer: 9:00am to 9:00pm
Winter: 10:00am to 5:00pm
