Gondola maintenance period 14th – 27th August 2019
Skyline Rotorua regrets to advise customers that over the period of 14th – 27th August 2019, the Gondola will be off line and undergoing an extensive scheduled preventative maintenance programme. Although the majority of other experiences across the site will remain open and operational for this entire period with additional vans providing complimentary transportation between the top and bottom terminals, in addition to the Gondola closure, unfortunately the Skyline Rotorua MTB Park will not operate.
Unfortunately, there may be delays during this period while waiting for transportation to and from the top terminal so please ensure time allowances are made for this.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Enjoy the stunning 180-degree scenic panorama from Skyline Rotorua while taking part in our fantastic, family fun activities and attractions!
There is no better place to check out Rotorua from above than on board one of our eight-seater Gondola cabins, which transports you along a gentle 900 metre Doppelmayr cableway system, all the way up to the Skyline Rotorua complex. Here you can relax and marvel at the views, grab a bite to eat at the Food Market Kitchen, take a walk on the nature trails, or choose from one of our exciting Rotorua activity options, including the Luge!
The Skyline Luge is a fun, fast-paced family activity that is enjoyable for everyone of all ages. Explore over 4 kilometres of thrilling Luge tracks - the longest of all Skyline Luge tracks in the world! Best described as part go-cart, part toboggan, the Luge is a truly unique experience that is a must-do activity when in New Zealand. Rotorua Luge has 3 tracks suitable for all skill levels; gentle, intermediate & advanced. All tracks provide fun and excitement for all while winding through the region's beautiful forest and scenic volcanic wonderland.
Just select your preferred luge trail, take off downhill and enjoy the ride! You'll twist and turn through the dramatic scenery, all the while having complete control over the speed and direction of your luge. Our three-wheeled gravity fuelled luges are purpose built with a unique braking and steering system so that all you have to do is push forward on the bars to accelerate and pull back to stop.
Once you reach the bottom, you'll be eager to get straight back up to the top so jump on the scenic chairlift and do it all over again - up to 5 times!
