Only way to get outstanding views across Rotorua. Staff were obliging and helpful as I was in a wheelchair and thought I would have to stay in the carpark and wait. Helped me on and off. Great tabogan to ride down hill, good gift shop

The luge was amazing, I did it at night so it was lit up. the scenic route was really cool and so was the intermediate. The expert was really cool and fun. the jellybeans were nice too.

If you needed a touristy thing to do in Rotorua, this would be it. Long gondola ride up to the top, giving great views over the lake and city. The luge rides themselves were really fun experiences, with varying difficulty levels suitable for all ages.

Excellent leisure opportunity in Rotoruafor all ages, from access via Gondola, restaurant, montain biking trails, Zoon Zipline and the exceptional luge. All activities have a different degree of adrenaline. I recommend!

Great place for families to have some fun, races, laughs. We are locals and have the annual pass. Downsizes - waiting in queues - every single time we go up to the luge, our first ride has to be on the scenic track with the...More

Review of: Gondola

Long long queue. If you've done the one in Queenstown, this was not worth the wait. It was not cheap either.

My family had a great time here. Loved the skyline gondola and the luge. For a family of 6 it got quiet expensive. They had heaps of staff that kept the lines moving quickly and efficiently.
