Overview
Ride the Rotorua Gondola to the top of Mt Ngongotaha and soak in sweeping views during the 10-minute ride. You’ll overlook Lake Rotorua and the city, and can spend as much time as you like at the summit. Have the option to descend by luge on one of three tracks — basic, intermediate or advanced. The luge provides a fun ride for all ages, no prior experience required.
What to Expect
Head to the Rotorua Gondola base, which is located only six miles (10 km) outside the city center. Once aboard the glass-enclosed gondola car, ride for 10 minutes to reach the summit of Mt Ngongotaha, which stands 1,597 feet (487 meters) tall.

Gaze over Lake Rotorua and the surrounding region from the gondola and mountain top, and when ready, return to the gondola to descend to the base. Alternatively, you can choose to the luge ride option for your descent.

Choose from three luge tracks—basic, intermediate or advanced—to zip down the mountain. Select a package with one, three, or five luge rides, and relax while the chairlift delivers you back to the mountain top in between rides. It's a great activity for adventurous kids and adults alike.
