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.

So so much fun! It was pouring with rain and dark and the staff were still allowing us to have a whale of a time zooming down the slopes. Special thanks to Blade and T and the team who helped us squeeze in all of our rides!

Loved visiting the gondola. We also made use of the luges too, they were amazing fun and we had a great afternoon. The view is also pretty damn good!

The gondola ride up was very scenic but it was all about the luge for me. It was so fun to run the track again and again and try to go faster and faster. A great thrill and safe too - it's very difficult to lose control of the luge. The only negative was that the advanced track was closed... More

I tried the hokey pokey ice cream an it was delicious. it is vanilla ice cream with honey in it. There is also a zip... More

We were not able to try all three routes. I tried the intermediate one and it was awesome!! I would've loved to try another ride on the advanced course! A must visit!

The gondola ride is well worth doing, giving fantastic views over the surrounding area. We didn't do the luge but it looked like lots of fun. The food in the cafe was very good.

Took the gondola/dinner package which was a good deal plus paid the extra for a window table (this included a free drink each which almost covered the extra cost). The food was a fabulous spread, all delicious, service attentive and the cherry on the top for us was a dessert platter wishing us Happy Anniversary as well as a card... More
