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.

Visited in school holidays, kids had a blast as always on the luge. This time they went on the skyswing, and highly recommend. Was a very cold and wet day, bit disappointing that it took 6 staff at the top of the luge to wipe...More

Unfortunately the weather was against us and the weather blocked out which would have been a wonderful views over Rotorua. The ride was enjoyed by all including a teenager and there was a good variety of food to eat. Coffee not the best but OK....More

Taking the gondola up to the skyline is a must in Rotorua. We ere told about a 30 min walk from the ibis hotel, wrong it is 1hour 15 mins walk so take a taxi about $15. At the skyline there is an excellent restaurant,...More

An enjoyable trip for the whole family - young and old! Will definitely return soon. Good food, lots to do! We got the half day package and was worth the price. Photos prized a bit high. Clean bathrooms and friendly staff!

The skyline opens at 9 am. Recommend that you arrive around 9 am, as it gets really busy as the day goes on. My wife and I went up at 9-30 and did 6 luge rides each before 11 am, and by then it was...More

Awesome fun and great for kids, but really a place for wealthy tourists. Will definitely do again when kids are older...5 & 7 at the moment which makes it a little challenging.

Smooth ride with gorgeous views of the area. Nice buffet restaurant at the top which might have been prearranged for our group as I was on a cruise ship excursion?

recommend you get there early - especially in school holidays, as the queues are pretty bad. But it's great fun for big and little kids and well worth the wait.
