The queque for the tickets was out the door when we arrived as it was early in the day and they only had one booth open but this stated to move quickly as more staff arrived. We experienced the same for the luge but again the queque moved more quickly as more staff arrived. The queques were longer for our... More

We took the deal for 3 rides and it is fantastic. Despite it raining and us getting soaked. We still enjoyed it. Take the intermediate and see if you can go up to advanced, but it is pretty fast.

Unfortunately the weather was terrible so we couldn't luge, but we enjoyed magnificent views from the gondola and a fantastic buffet, a seafood lovers paradise.

Well worth doing. In spite of my vertigo, I thoroughly enjoyed the gondola ride. The views from the top are terrific. Didn't try the luge...too scary for me but great for thrill seekers. Nice cafe with average food.

We like to travel to Rotorua every few years from Auckland. Every time we go to Rotorua, it's mandatory to stop at Skyline. This place just keeps improving, with new rides and new paths for the luge. The food is fantastic (best salmon pizza ever!). Great place for all ages to have fun.

Loved this place from start to finish. The luge was a great way to go down and one go is just not enough. This place for kids and adults. Had a lovely ice cream in the cafe too.

Great views form the top, we ate at the buffet for lunch and found it good value for money, although like all buffets it's not the best quality food but was good value and views from the restaurant. Loved the luge, was great for all levels

I had such a good time! thank you so much to the staff at skyline for helping to make an awesome day. I would also recommend the new zip line as well. It is incredibly fun. I think that skyline is reasonably priced and an excellent day out.

We arrived here at 9.15 and the que was out the door. The view from the gondola is beautiful and while that was peaceful and your party gets their own unit to go up into when you got to the top it was a nightmare. We paid for 5 rides on the luge but only went down twice due to... More
