Overview

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.

Family and I enjoyed the buffet (decent food, lots of variety). The gondola was also pretty good, if short. The cart paths down the side of the mountain were lots of fun.

We all had a lot of fun zooming down the mountain side. We paid for two luge rides for the family price. If I were to do it again I would probably get three rides. Look for a coupon at the hotel you are staying...More

Hiya. Yes, it is operational during winter. It was Autumn when we were there. Obviously if weather was extremely bad I would assume it would be off but don't think their weather will ever get to be that bad. Happy holidays... More
