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.

This is better than the Queenstown Skyline, even though it is smaller with less of a view. The staff were first class, with a wide choice of food.

This is our 5th trip there and love it every time we go. We paid for 5 trips down and did the scenic, intermediate and advanced route. The intermediate run is i think the best. My son enjoyed racing to the finish line and at the end caused a traffic jam which being a teenager thought this was hilarious. Cant wait till the next time..

The boys insisted on going though hubby and I were not too keen. However it looked so much fun that we changed our mind. And boy was it fun !! We all ended up going for 3 luge rides each (started with beginer and moved on to advance). You'd be better off buying a Gondola+luge package that gives you at least 2 rides each. We started with the one with 8 rides (for 99.00) and ended up having to buy 4 extra luge rides :) as we wanted to go again. Tip - on the faster tracks, stay on the inside if you are in front of some crazy riders as they tend to rush past you.
