We booked in for dinner here due to the location and posters expressing 2014 gold beef & lamb awards. The seafood chowder was fantastic & so was the smoked salmon. The rest of the buffet ranged from average to above average and for the price was def value for money. We didn't opt for the fresher cuts to be cooked... More

The view from the top is simply amazing. The food however isn't. Everything was dried out and nothing was being restocked. Would never go back again worst buffet I have ever eaten at.

I like going up on the gondolas to see a great view of Rotorua plus to look at people going down the mountainside on the luge. I have been luging once when I first came to live in Rotorua but not ever since because it was a bit scarey. Maybe I should have another go because it would be fun.... More
