Recommended length of visit: 1-2 hours
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.

A nice short ride with good views over Rotorua. I arrived too late for the luge rides but stayed for the buffet available at the top. It is quite good and can be upgraded to a prime steak (and other options) for a small fee.

Had so much fun with wedding party before the big day!
The luge was the best though, going down fast, but going up slowly on the gondola beautiful views and quite romantic!

We had breakfast at the restaurant before heading to the luge. It was fun going down the hill and enjoying the great scenery. The gondola rides back and forth also gave great views. The breakfast at the restaurant was buffet and not bad as they go.

The gondola may be slower than at a ski resort but the views are great. The luge is fun a definitely worth ore than one go!
