About Skyline Rotorua
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.

Great place and great fun for a family to visit, although an expensive exercise for four adults and three children to have a few luge rides. $34 gondola compared with $9 gondola on Grouse Mtn Gondola, Vancouver. So lovely to see so many Kiwi families out enjoying the

Wasn't there for long because the prices were so expensive. Luge was fun but couldn't afford to do everything. Cafe a little pricey too. If you want the best experience I would get saving.

A small theme park at the top of a hill which should have something for everyone. It was raining on the day we went, which meant the views from the gondola and at the top were not great- although the cloud lifted slightly at times to tantalize us with what we were missing. The
