I used bookme.co.nz to find a skyline and 4 luge pass for $30. It was one of the best value for money activities I did - the luge has 3 tracks (Scenic, Intermediate, Advanced) and the tracks are much longer than the Queenstown one. So much fun!

Went up the gondola and up to the top which provides impressive views over Rotorua. The luge is awesome fun and with friends can be quite entertaining. Can be a little slippery in the rain so choose when to go.

I LOVED IT HERE!!!!!!!!!!!! Worth every penny! My friends and I were there for a few hours and it wasn't enough! The Gondola ride is BEAUTIFUL! When we got to the top of the mountain, we walked around and went on the different walking trails (great views, wonderful informational signs and gadgets!), then did the luge ride. You MUST get...

Beautiful views from the cable car as you ascend. At the top you can go for a hike, or my favourite, race the custom designed go carts down a variety of tracks. We only paid for 3 rides but I would happily have done 10! A few restaurant options at the top, with great views over Rotorua Also a couple... More

I was pleasantly surprised by view, as looking up from Rotorua thought the view wouldn't be much. As all tourist sites expensive.

The views from the top are superb and with plenty to do it is easy to spend a few hours here. Luging is great fun! The restaurant has had a revamp since our last visit and we found the range and quality of food offered to be extensive and of a very high standard.

A speedy 3 wheeled cart which is very exciting!!! An absolutely thrilling and gravity fuelled ride. We did three laps and after the first lap you hop onto the chairlift and do it all over again!

Skyline Rotorua was my most anticipated stop of my trip to NZ. After watching multiple videos of the luge, I was hooked and had to do it. We drove 4 hours to Rotorua to stay a couple days and try this out. We bought the combo that gave 5 luge rides and a ride on the zipline. I wish we... More
