Worth going up to see the beautiful view. Lunch was average, and we didn't do any of the activities, but seeing lots of families with children enjoying themselves brings a smile to my face.

Love the scenery, the gongola rides and the luge experience. The only downside is the lady at ticket box (Rebecca.H) did not acknowlegde the 10% off "Arrival" voucher for travellers. Why advertised at "Arrival" magazine if not sincere?

WOW, great morning out. Firstly; when I was shown the videos I said I'm not going, but the family I was visiting decided it was what they wanted to do for my friends birthday. Then we arrived and saw the cable car (gondola) this wasn't as bad as I expected, but still nerve racking. The luge itself was actually amazing,... More

The luge is one thing we do on every visit to Rotorua. 1 adult to go up the gondola + 1 luge ride cost $40. 1 child to go up the gondola + 5 luge rides + 1 zip line (like a flying fox) cost $85 if you buy down below. The zip line is quite new and a great... More

the service at the skyline cafe is poor, we waited nearly 30 mins for 2 hot drinks and they weren't busy. Tables hadnt been cleared. The worst was the wasps that were everywhere. We had to move tables 3 times while trying to eat our lunc to try and get away from themh. Not nice when your allergic to them.... More

I purchased a half day pass to try pretty much all they had to offer except mountain biking. I can say that luge is by far the most fun thing there. I wish I had skipped the other two activities (zip line & sling shot). Zip line is just one time traverse and a mini bungee jump. Preparations for it... More

A great fun adventure park with thrills and (the occasional) spill. Lots of adrenalin was pumping for the younger ones on the LUGE and the Zip Line. The 10 metre 'jump-line' was almost not accomplished BUT we did it!!!! and it was a really great day....good weather helped and it was a great way to spend a day!!

Wow, been here heaps of times but it never disappoints. Great fun screaming down the slopes on the luges. They seem to have been developing the site too and there's what looks to be newish mountain bike tracks and a zip line. We did experience some substantial queues as a result of one of the chairlifts breaking down but I... More

It had been many years since my last visit to this city and a few many more since my last trip on the Skyline Gondola. We arrived and found the car park very full round noon. A number of tourist buses were parked at the entrance and I feared that we might be in for a long wait. Fortunately it... More
