Bought a gondola and lunch buffet combo thru other website for 11:30am buffet. Sat next to the window which we can enjoy a great view. Food was very fresh and delicious. 2 kind of soup. Salad bar with Prawn and mussels. Meat counter with steak, pork and lamb plus roast meat, all cooked perfectly. A small selection of hot food.... More

My Daughter loves this place and so do my wife and I. A must do if you're in Rotorua and you should definitely give the Luge a go, my folks went down despite both being north of 60 and had a great time. Dad went down the Advanced track with me and kept up pretty well all the way down... More

We had a wonderful family experience at Skyline. After travelling to the top in the gondola, we had stunning views for kilometres. The luge rides were fantastic, and all of us ,ranging in age from 63 to 20 months, enjoyed them immensely. The actual courses were much longer than expected and the return trip on the chairlift was really efficient.... More

Whole family had a blast on the luge. A bit pricey but great views, fun rides. Lunch at the top with lots of options (including healthy fare).

It was a lovely experience and wonderful day with clear skies which added the best opportunities for memorable photographs. Recommend signing up for the album as it gives the whole family the opportunity to be in the images together. Cherry blossoms in bloom usually in September and makes for a pink veil along the walking paths at the top of... More

When we went the intermediate track was closed, otherwise would have given it a 5 star. The scenic route gets boring after 3 rounds, yet we were too chicken to try the advance track. If all tracks are open, get the 5 luge passes...!! Wearing knitted gloves may help as our hands did hurt a little from tight gripping of... More

Paid for the luge and buffet lunch combo. It was daunting at first but after the first go on the beginner track, the luge was fun! Went on the intermediate track on our last time and got stuck on one of the turns! Buffet was great, high quality food; pork chop was my favorite. Another plus was the amazing view... More

Based on the images on Trip Advisor, we assumed that the park opened at sunset as the views looked stunning. This isn't actually the case unless you are going for dinner in the restaurant. They will however still take your money.
