“Be sure to try the Luge!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2012

Friends of ours recommended we visit the Skyline during our stay in Rotorua. The gondola ride up provided a good view, but we made the mistake of not buying a package that included tickets the the Luge. When we arrived at the top, we quickly realized that the Luge was the best part of Skyline! So we paid the extra and bought some tickets from the top. It was a lot of fun racing down the Luge and would suit all ages. The Skyline also offered really good discounts for multiple trips on the Gondola, so if you are in town for a while and want to visit more than once, these are worth considering.

“awesome fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012

Went for the luge ride and had a blast. The kids (8 and 10) couldn't get enough, had to go back for a second day. Not exactly cheap but when you're only there for the weekend you make the most of it. Was probably the kids favourite activity of the holiday. Great choice of runs, my 8 year old was only disappointed when he was allowed on the 'advanced' run. Think you have to be 12.
