Spent a few hours here in Feb.

Bought the combo ticket for lunch, gondola and 3 luge runs, but added the zip line as well

Enjoyed the day, I thought the buffet was fabulous. Every different type of food you could imagine. So my advice is “arrive hungry” if you do the buffet ticket.

The luge ride was fun, but unfortunately they let small children on the advanced run and two separate runs we had to stop and get off to assist kids who were stuck beside the track, it ruined 2 of our runs and it’s a crazy policy by the park. Frankly it’s nothing short of dangerous.

The zip line was a good ride.

All in all, a good day out, but not a cheap one that’s for sure.

We made the mistake of only purchasing the gondola and 3 luge rides... We went back and purchased another 3 rides each! So. Much. Fun!

ONCE IS NEVER ENOUGH!
Maybe we should change our tag line to "3 Luge Rides is still never enough" :)

We went up for dinner at someone’s recommendation. I was a bit dubious given the cost but we had a lovely dinner. Although it was a buffet, it was of decent quality with lots of choices. The view was great. It’s expensive so go hungry or you might not get your money’s worth. The go carts looked fun but we didn’t do it.

It’s worth it it just to get the gondola up to the top, awesome views of the city and lake Rotorua. The restaurant was also great, really good buffet food. But the luge is the best part. Never done anything like it before but bloody hell it was fun!
The only bad part was missing out on doing the Skyswing. Despite buying a ticket for it, it was closed early for no reason. We got our money back but still heaps disappointed. Also, be aware they won’t sell tickets for the luge 15 before they close. Despite signage saying open til 8pm, we lined up for a ticket at around 7.50pm and weren’t able to have another go. One very disappointed kid with me at the time, so plan ahead!

This was so much fun. If you've never used a luge before, like myself, then don't worry it's easy to use and staff will instruct you. After the first luge ride down you'll get the hang of it. We took 3 rides for each of the 3 tracks but sadly the advanced wasn't open when we arrived around 10:30 am. Don't know if it was under maintenance or what. Helpful tip for future luge riders, do not fully stop you might get stuck on a hilly patch. If you do, use your body weight and lean into the hill or use the scoot your butt method. Also, the restaurant has a really good buffet if you're hungry. Fun experience, highly recommended.
