We took a 15 minute helicopter flight out over Rotorua to Blue Lake and Green Lake, flying over nearby forest covered mountains. The pilot was knowledgeable and friendly. While not cheap (about $195 NZD each), we were able to arrange a flight at less than an hours notice. The morning was wet and cloudy so we decided to wait until the weather cleared before committing to taking a flight.
If you only did one thing in Rotorua, I think that this is what I'd recommend.
