A cable car up to the skyline restaurant is a lovely experience, with views of Rotarua Lake, but the meal you will get once you are there is superb. The choices within the buffet were better than I have had anywhere before, and the food...More

We had an awesome time here as a family. Kids are 8 and 4 years of age. They had great fun on the luge. My wife and I also had a go the the sky swing. Would definitely recommend all that is for offer.

Compared to gondola rides I’ve been before this I felt this was very expensive for a short ride. $35 to go to the top and return. Nothing much to do at the top so you return pretty quickly. Only do it if you have to...More

Marvellous with the change to get photos as if taken from an helicopter. The price and the experience are for sure on favour of the adventure.
