“Fun for families”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013

We went with our two boys 2 & 4 years and both loved the tandem luge and jelly beam shop. Great views. As the boys were you g we only had to pay $2 extra for each. Good value.

“Must visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013

As a local I am so proud that Rotorua has a place like this for all to enjoy. While the gondola and luge is the same as it has always been it is the additions to the site which I love the most. Volcanic Hills Wine Tasting is an awesome activity for adults to enjoy, the Jelly Belly Shop is amazing no matter how old you are and if you're a little bit of a daredevil definitely try the Sky Swing! Art of the Grill is also one of the best places to eat in Rotorua, the food is amazing and the views, well simply breath taking.

“One Word.. Excellent!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2013

We loved our ride on the gondola, with fantastic views of Rotorua... but had an absolute ball on the Luge... Once is definitely not enough! 6 rides down just wasn't enough for our 3 year old!! She just wanted to go faster & faster!! Our lunch at Market Kitchen was delicious, along with our stop at the Jelly Bean Store!
TIP: We went up first thing in the morning, and there was no crowds for the Luge, however by lunch time there was quite a line! So earlier the better!!

“Great view and fun ride.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013

Had a great ride up the views are amazing.

Had lunch at Market Kitchen which was disappointing, food was not very appetizing.
The 4D U.F.O ride should be avoided, was over quickly and was boring.
Jellybean store was cool a d got some good deals.
