WHAT YOU VISIT
Skyline Rotorua Gondola & Luge
Sitting high atop the slopes of Mt. Ngongotaha, Skyline Rotorua's been one of the area's most thrilling attractions since 1985. Ride the Skyline Gondola to the top where you'll select from one of three exciting tracks with a combined total of three miles. The part go-cart, part toboggan is gravity fueled 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. Climb in and take off downhill through twists and turns to a backdrop of dramatic scenery and down through a redwood forest. Once at the bottom, ride the chairlift back to the top of the track. Speed addicts will have plenty of opportunity to try their luck on the advanced track with its challenging tunnels and spirals. For an additional charge, you can purchase additional luge rides or visit some of Skyline's other attractions which include the Sky Swing, SkyVue 4-D Motion Theater, and scenic walking tracks.

PHOTO OPPORTUNITY
As you glide up the 2,952-foot-long cableway, be sure to aim your lens out the windows of the gondola for stunning views of Lake Rotorua, the city and the steaming geothermal landscape.

LUNCH
The complex at the top of Mt. Ngongotaha offers refreshments and lunch, which you can purchase at your leisure.

WHAT YOU SEE ALONG THE WAY
As you make your way south, the narrated coach ride will take you through Tauranga and the North Island's meandering countryside to Skyline Rotorua's skyride cableway.
