The luge was a huge hit amongst us all. My 3 year old went down on the luge with my husband while my daughter and I took our time at a comfortable pace. Good fun. The staff were really friendly and helpful and encouraged us to go up and down on the gondola as many times as we liked. My... More

As I originally come from Rotorua we have been up and down the Skyline for years. Well worth it for a family, go up the gondola"s and down the luge. Amazing views from the top. Families will just love it. Started up taking the kids up now its the grandkids.

Great views over Rotorua from the top of the gondola, and several activities available including the luge and the Volcanic Hills Winery tasting room. The luge is a lot of fun, we bought 5 trips along with our gondola ticket (cheaper if you buy as part of the package, although you can purchase additional rides up top). Having visited their... More

The gondola was excellent. It doesn't seem like much from the road but its worth it when you are up there! Then of course there is the luge which is excellent you wont be able to have just one go! We stayed around the Christmas period. So we had our Christmas dinner in the skyline restaurant. This was average perhaps... More

We've visited Rotorua several times over many years and the Gondola and luge are always on the agenda. The views at the top over Rotorua and the lake are lovely, and the luge ride down the mountain is such fun. Our 6 & 7 year old kids loved it, especially when we were racing each other. You are able to... More

Before you start on the wide range of activities, explore the city through a gondola ride upto the mountain. The view from the gondola is amazing. Once you reach uphill, try the Luge rides. Luge Rides downhill are offered on three different trails based on difficulty. Its super fun, we did it twice, first on a relatively easy trail and... More

Go up to the highest place in Rotorua and you can see the whole view of the city, although the weather of the day was not so good but the view was also impressive.
