Skyline Rotorua, Rotorua

4.5
#1 of 760 in Tours in North Island
Ascend Mount Ngongotaha at a leisurely pace with Skyline Rotorua, providing a scenic way to experience New Zealand's picturesque natural scenery. The gondola starts just a short walk northwest of town and offers visitors panoramic views of Lake Rotorua. Once at the top, explore a network of well-marked walking trails, lined with informative panels providing details about the area's rich natural world. If you're in for a swift descent, take one of several luge rides back down. Extend your visit at the top of the mountain by visiting the onsite restaurant or attractions like a zipline and the popular Skyswing, where you'll swoop 50 m (164 ft) above ground and reach speeds of up to 160 km/h (99 mph).

  • Rotorua Skyline is a great place to spend some nice adventurous and fun afternoon. We especially luges. It's really cool to ride them down. Our favorite was advanced track! Zoom zipline is super cool because it's quite long and you have very comfortable harness. It's great ride. At the end the was an option to jump "quick jump". That's the adrenaline thing :D Thank you! It was a great day!
  • It is a bit expensive but worth going once to see the sights and of course doing the luge great fun and the tracks are an adventure. You get caught by the company taking photos at the beginning heading up then when you do the luge there are camera's all over the scenic and intermediate tracks so they also try and get you to pay for photo's of your day. But saying that you have the choice to leave your photos just sitting there for everyone else to look at..............
  • I love this place its my favourite. They stuff are very nice and friendly. Dion is the best man and the most professional to deal with him. All the best to all the staff 10 starts
  • We had so much fun! So much fun! If you are after a fun experience then make sure to drop by this place.
  • Kiddo love the gondola ride. And the luge is excellent. It’s pity that the advance track and intermediate track is on maintenance, we got to sit on the scenic track only. We go for the family ride of 4, twice and we share it among family members. It’s the best value as it’s only 32 dollars for 4 rides. The buffet lunch is surprisingly tasty with good selection, not to mention the view offered during lunch. If the window seat is available, try to opt for that as it’s incurred a minimum of 15 dollars spending per pax. We ordered drinks to go along with the buffet. Kiddo loves it and we enjoyed it too.
