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.

Fun day out with friends. Gorgeous view from the top and don't pass on trying the luge! The food is ok, nothing special, but good enough when you had a fun filled day. Wine tasting experience was great, friendly host and gorgeous wine!

We are in an all girl (single gals in our 30s) trip all over NZ and we all loved the luge! It was like being a little kid again. Check out the jelly bean store, the clerks are super friendly and they have some fun games. Get more than just one ride on the luge, you'll love it and wanna do it again.

It's a bit expensive to do the Gondola and the Luge ride but it's really fun and if you take you time you can stretch our time here. We took our 4 year old so couldn't do the advanced ride but we had loads of fun and it's a great view. Food is a little expensive, the photos weren't which was surprising.
I wish tourist parks would realise that if they were more realistic with their pricing people would spend more - don't think it will happen :)

Our first Skyline in NZ.. spent quality time at the resturant. The food's pretty good too. The hot coco is to die for. We reached in the evening and I think thats the best time as you get to see the day time view and also the night view of the city and the lake! Lovely trip, totally worth the money!

You can't beat a gondola ride into the hills for dinner, then be treated to a spectacular view of Rotovegas. We went on a Saturday night, and it felt like feeding time at the zoo, but what can you expect from a buffet? The quality has declined a lot since the last time I went. We won't be back in the hurry for the food, but the ride was nice.
