My family had a wonderful time here. We did the 5 ride luge package. Beautiful views from the top. The luge runs were nicely organized- beginner, intermediate, and advanced. The lines moved quickly and the staff kept everything going smoothly. I wish I would have done the zip line as well. It looked like lots of fun. A bit pricey... More

We have now been to 3 of the 5 Skyline luges on our trip and still vote Rotorua Skyline as the best for overall Luge enjoyment, accessibility and add-on value. Accessibility The park is clearly signposted from several areas around Rotorua and has a large carpark directly out the front. Ride packages These should be purchased on the day, although... More

Wife and I often go to eat in the Skyline Restaurant, the food is very good, the service superb and the gorgeous view over the City makes the day - we can see our house from the restaurant! Today it was full of families enjoying the start of the Summer holidays - just a pity there was so little sunshine!

After two out of five rides the chairlift broke down for about 20 mins, while we were sitting on it. They eventually got it in turtle mode and we were able to get off it. That lift was then closed. There was no information given except barricades blocking where we queued for the ride. We followed the crowds to where... More

Arrived in Rotorua mid morning and despite the cool and damp weather ventured up the skyline for a great view over the lake. Pity the weather didn't allow a better view, but as with most of this country was still stunning. The luge was an absolute ball. We had three rides each, could have squeezed in another couple but this... More
