Skyline Rotorua: Gondola + 7 Luge Rides

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 spectacular  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.


The Luge is an exciting ride for all ages. A world 'first' proudly designed and built in Rotorua, the Luge is a fun filled ride on a three-wheel cart. The unique braking and steering system provides the rider full control and allows them to travel as fast or slow as they wish.
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.
Over six million riders have enjoyed the Luge ride experience to date. Full instructional information and key do's and don'ts are provided prior to riding the Luge.

  • Day 1 : Gondola + 7 Luge Rides
    Nestle into a Luge cart and zip off with friends or family to discover who has the skills to master the Luge. The part go-cart, part toboggan is gravity fuelled with full rider control over speed and direction using a unique braking and steering system. Pull back on the handlebars to slow down or stop, release slightly to accelerate and enjoy the ride. The Luge is great for any age (our oldest rider is 101) and small children can ride with adults. First up, ride the sweeping bends of the Scenic Track through the Redwoods Forest. After a stunning chair-lift ride back to the top, the Intermediate and Advanced tracks await. Once is never enough. The world famous Luge opened in 1986 and Skyline Rotorua continues to lead the Luge technology - all components are designed and manufactured in Rotorua and then shipped around the world to other Luge locations.
