Skyline Rotorua

Fairy Springs Rd, Rotorua, New Zealand, 3040 - View the map

Over five million riders can't be wrong! The luge, a Rotorua-designed and built gravity ride, is a hit. Using a three-wheel cart with a unique gravity breaking and steering system, the luge rider is in full control and can dictate just what speed they hurtle downhill. And that's a good thing, because if you've chosen the advanced one-kilometre concreted track - complete with tight bends and curves - you may (if you've bitten off more than you can chew) need to call on those controls. The luge has two alternative tracks: the intermediate option, covering 1.5 kilometres and weaving through tunnel and spirals; and the scenic track, a two-kilometre coaster lined with redwood trees and rest areas for taking photographs.
This is an all-weather outdoor activity suitable for all ages - you can even take under-six-year-old with you on the scenic option - and two tracks are lit during our Twilight luge nights. Access to the luge is via our Gondola and after you have hurtled down the luge track you return again via an open chairlift that will take you to the top of Mt Ngongotaha to enjoy those amazing panoramic views and try the variety of tasty nosh at the Market Kitchen Café. Or for those wanting even more adventure and adrenalin, the SkySwing - flying through the air at more than 150 kilometres per hour or Zoom Zipline dual Ziplines where you get that feeling of flying through the tress at speeds of up to 80 kilometres per hour might be more your style - which are also located here..
