The food was very fresh and a huge assortment. I am not a big fan of buffets to be honest but was impressed by... More

We decided to have dinner here on Xmas night. We paid $109 each per adult (there were 4 of us) & $55 for a child. The meat was dry & tasteless -especially the chicken & pork. The pasta didnt have much to add to it eg sauces. So next time we will do our usual & just stay home. We... More

This really is the highlight for Rotorua. This is an experience you cannot get anywhere else in NZ except Queenstown. fantastic fun for the whole family! A bit pricey though!

We went to Skyline with 2 kids 8 and 5 years old and they loved it. We bought a family pass to Gondola with 6 Luge rides. I wish we bought more Luge rides (at least 10). We also went to the UFO and the restaurant. Everything was awesome!!!

Spent the day here with my son. Went on the luge and also the Sky Swing and had a great time. I would recommend buying one of the combined packages as this works out cheaper than buying the at the top.

If you can't find something to make you happy here, there is something wrong! The gondola ride is up spectacular - great views of Rotorua. Up top, there is restaurant, wine tasting, luge, a theatre that moves, a giant swing a zipline and I might not have mentioned it all. We first went up for dinner (which I would say... More

We had a lovely couple of hours up the Skyline. Bought family pass that included 6 luge tickets. Hubby and 8 year old son used 3 each. Sooooo much fun they reported. And probably could have gone a few more times. But Miss 6.5 year old was at her limit "waiting" for them to finish luging, there isn't anything much... More

The Skyline Gondola provides an excellent view of the city of Rotorua and the surrounding areas. At the top there is a cafe providing food and drinks and adjacent is the area with the 3 different Luge courses (didn't attempt any of these) - packed with holidaymakers and their children.

Luging was great fun and the tracks were very cool. I read the reviews stating that 1 is never enough and you should book many, and took them to heart; booked 7 luges and this was quite a lot - took about 2.5 hours. I think 4 would be plenty - enough to enjoy and leave you wanting more. The... More
