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.

The Luge is a Must

The luge was the coolest thing I did in Rotorua. It's the real deal. It's fast, windy, fun and potentially dangerous. Go after 6:30 PM when you get five rides for $39. You cannot just do it once. Go see for yourself.

I love it here. My favorite thing to do when in Rotorua! Luging is amazing and the staff are very friendly. Also the restaurant is to die for :-) I just wish the photos were a bit cheaper!!

Our tour group arrived early for the gondola ride to the top and then buffet breakfast in the Cableway Restaurant. Good and plentiful food. Wonderful view from the top for photos. Afterwards we did luge runs down the hill. Great fun even for us senior citizens.

We decided to take this gondola up and eat a casual lunch, relax and enjoy views. It was well worth it. I'm not into mountain biking , but if I was, this looks like it would be great place to do it as we saw many happy bikers loading back on to ride up and bike down again! We had... More

For $125 you get a return trip on the gondola and ten luge rides to share amongst your family. Even with only three of us this was more cost effective than buying single tickets. Your ticket consists of a single piece of card and the attendant punches a hole in it for each ride that is taken, so you all... More

After visiting the Skyline in Queenstown we HAD to visit the one in Rotorua. As a family we loved the luge and the gondola and would highly recommend.

What fun the skyline is! We paid for the skyline up & 1 luge ride down. In fact, the luge ride, which was super fun & easy to do, takes you nearly to the bottom then you take a chairlift back up to the top then get the skyline back down. As we didn't realise this, we thought the whole... More

Been to restaurant here twice in past month. Good excellent and great views. Price is $55 a head which includes gondola ride. I think that's a good price considering the variety and quality of food.
