About Skyline Rotorua
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.

We booked the night luge (5 rides & the gondola) and absolutely loved it. One of our favourite parts of Rotorua and definitely worth the money for something a bit different! Wrap up warm, especially your hands and there’s a chilly breeze in the winter months! Special thanks to Daniel in the Skyline Bar & Restaurant who poured some wines for me to taste before choosing one in the bar afterwards. Great service.

We took students to Skyline for a luging experience. We struck an amazing day weather wise, and the view was fabulous. There are fantastic new tracks open and more in progress. Our students had so much fun, and so did we! Great coffee to follow a few hours on the tracks. Highly recommended!

I really wish we give this place a higher rating, however we were quite disappointed with staff friendliness as everywhere else we visited had exceptional welcoming staff and we didn't feel that here. However. It was still worth visiting at least once. The Sky swing is terrifying and i do not like, however we highly recommend you give it a go. The Zipline was fine, but we enjoyed ziplines elsewhere more. The luge - The tracks exceeded expectations, we much longer than i thought they would be. was a nice way to pass the afternoon Dinner at the Stratosphere had a great view, the waitstaff were the most welcoming out of the entire place. Explained the buffet well and made delicious drinks. The food was fine for buffet food. I would only recommend going if you love buffets with a great view.

Went up the gondola recently. It was a cloudy day and views were a little restricted across the lake, but still an excellent view. Nice café and what looked like a great restaurant. Worth doing when in Rotorua.
