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.

“Skyline Luge”
Reviewed 19 July 2014

Skyine Luge is a fun way to spend a few hours. The 3 different tracks offer lots of variety for all ages. If you're to small to ride yourself you can ride with an adult. Kids of all ages love this.The views from the top over Lake Rotorua are amazing. You can even stop on the scenic track to take photos.
Suitable for all ages.

“South Aussies in Rotorua”
Reviewed 18 July 2014

The views were simply stunning, you get a great view of all of Rotorua and the forest on the slopes. The luge was one of the biggest highlights the kids had.

“Fantastic Day in Rotorua”
Reviewed 17 July 2014

We went to the Skyline in Rotorua. It was the School Holidays and wanted to do something different with the kids. Two boys aged 16 & 8. We looked at the board to see what we were going to do for the day. It was good to see that they had excellent deals for the day and being the holidays also was great. We decided to go for the package deal of 3 Luge rides & 1 Zipline Ride.This was for 3 Adults and 1 child. We felt that this was the best for us and it was a fantastic day full of fun. This is good for any age range lots to do and it is so much better to get a lovely day with not to much wind.Remember this is our winter time. We did find it to be cool but we had jackets so we were fine.Make sure you take a small back pack to carry keys,wallets,camera for when you go onto the rides so you don't have to worry about handbags.The people who helped you get into your gear or onto a Luge were so great very helpful. When it is your first time it can be very nervous thing. The views were also amazing.

“Nice view of Lake Rotorua”
Reviewed 15 July 2014

I spent a couple of hours at the top; there are several hiking trails in varying lengths depending on how much time you have.

There is also a winery/wine-tasting available so purchased the combination ticket. The owner was quite knowledgeable on NZ wines and enjoyed chatting with him.
