Famous for a reason, Skyline Rotorua is your ticket to an unforgettable holiday.

Begin your day with a tranquil Gondola ride up Mt Ngongotaha overlooking Lake Rotorua then wind your way down via the Luge or if you prefer to descend by mountain bike, weave your way through one of the newly created Gravity Park trails.

Get the adrenalin pumping even more on the Zoom Zipline and the Sky Swing. Or for a more relaxed approach take a stroll through the stunning nature trails with informative and interactive panels along the way.

Left feeling a little peckish? Head to the Food Market Kitchen or the Stratosfare Restaurant & Bar to fuel up again. While you’re there, why not also pop into the Volcanic Hills Wine Tasting Room and Winery while the kids explore the Jelly Belly Gallery and Store.

Finish the day with an out-of-this world experience during Skyline’s Stargazing tour. It’ll have you exploring constellations and discovering planets invisible to the naked eye, at one of the top eight stargazing locations in New Zealand.

The Skyline Rotorua complex is just 5 minutes’ drive from central Rotorua, sitting atop Mt Ngongotaha providing unsurpassed views of New Zealand’s coolest hot spot. This is an all-weather must do attraction suitable for all ages. Open 365 days a year from 9am to late.

We were not able to try all three routes. I tried the intermediate one and it was awesome!! I would've loved to try another ride on the advanced course! A must visit!

The gondola ride is well worth doing, giving fantastic views over the surrounding area. We didn't do the luge but it looked like lots of fun. The food in the cafe was very good.

Took the gondola/dinner package which was a good deal plus paid the extra for a window table (this included a free drink each which almost covered the extra cost). The food was a fabulous spread, all delicious, service attentive and the cherry on the top for us was a dessert platter wishing us Happy Anniversary as well as a card... More

I highly recommend the Gondala and luge!! Both are absolutely worth it!!! After riding the luge 3 times I was sad I didn't buy more rides. Advanced track is totally awesome. A definite must do.

Our annual trip to Rotorua is never complete without doing the Luge! Never disappoints! And since we were there, we did the buffet! Huge selection and delicious! Will definitely come again!

American tourist - my first time luge and zip lining. Friends that done before said the luge was better here than on South Island. Very safe (family freaked out when I said luge)! Go early- beat the crowds and look for coupons in sightseeing brochures!
