Skyline Rotorua: Gondola + 1 Luge Ride

GONDOLA
Conveniently located just minutes from Rotorua's City centre, high on the side of Mount Ngongotaha, Skyline Rotorua will carry you to 487 metres above sea level to a stunning environment. Providing panoramic views of Rotorua City, Lake Rotorua and the surrounding area, Skyline Rotorua is an all weather attraction, and is open every day of the year. A 900 metre long Doppelmayr cableway system with a vertical rise of 178.5 metres, is capable of carrying 2000 people an hour in eight-seater cabins.

Three separate concrete sealed tracks wind through the redwood trees. Children under six are able to be carried in tandem. Riders return to the top of the luge on a specially designed chairlift system.
