Owner description: 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.

Friends of ours recommended we visit the Skyline during our stay in Rotorua. The gondola ride up provided a good view, but we made the mistake of not buying a package that included tickets the the Luge. When we arrived at the top, we quickly realized that the Luge was the best part of Skyline! So we paid the extra and bought some tickets from the top. It was a lot of fun racing down the Luge and would suit all ages. The Skyline also offered really good discounts for multiple trips on the Gondola, so if you are in town for a while and want to visit more than once, these are worth considering.

Went for the luge ride and had a blast. The kids (8 and 10) couldn't get enough, had to go back for a second day. Not exactly cheap but when you're only there for the weekend you make the most of it. Was probably the kids favourite activity of the holiday. Great choice of runs, my 8 year old was only disappointed when he was allowed on the 'advanced' run. Think you have to be 12.

This place is just great. We went with the whole family aged from 4-44 and every one had the best time in the world.
