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.

Despite the slow start at the express queue and only one luge track being opened we still had an amazing time. This place is awesome. The sky swing is a must do, the luge is amazing. Can't wait for our youngest to be old enough to do the zipline.

My baby sister got injured and hurt her leg, a gentleman named Ed (had blue eyes) was very helpful, took good care of her, made her feel safe. Really appreciate the staff here. Thank you again Ed for being a star.

Having been to the Queenstown gondola and luge I was not expecting much when I drove past - the gondola is nowhere near as dramatic as QT but was enjoyable enough (and the cable cars are twice as big). But the beat thing was the luge - we had five rides and enjoyed every one of them, alternating between the scenic and advanced route. But the key thing was that the tracks are way way longer than QT - at a guess between twice and three time’s the length. Felt that we got good value for money. Each ride took 15-20 minutes once you luge down and then chair lift back up. The scenic route was great (a number of beginners slowed you down but only in parts) and was actually scenic going through the forest. By no means boring - in fact we (my 8 year old and I) preferred it. Still a good view of the city and lake. Didn’t try the cafe or restaurant but they were both busy and people seemed to be enjoying them- we did indulge in the Jelly Belly shop and also got the action photos. Keen to go back

Thank you so much for your review!! We are very lucky to have the space to be able to offer the amazing activities we have here at Skyline Rotorua. Fun fact (because I can't help myself!), if you put all the QT Luge tracks together, our scenic track is still longer!!! We hope you can visit again soon :)

It was a fun day that started first with a gondola ride to the top. We had a zipline and 4 luge package. It was a great day. As it was a weekend, there were not too many people so the lines were reasonably not too long. Zipline is a MUST!
