Skyline Rotorua

When we reached Auckland, we headed to Rotorua.

Rotorua is one place where the turbulent forces that formed New Zealand are most evident. This city, on the Volcanic Plateau, has one of the world’s most lively fields of geothermal activity and sits squarely on the Pacific Rim of Fire.

Gondola: situated on the side of Mt Ngongotaha (487asl). Take in the 180 panoramic views of Lake Rotorua, the city and surrounding district as you travel along the 900m cableway to Skyline's upper complex. An all weather attraction.

Luge: Fun filled gravity ride on 3-wheeled carts, riders control the direction and speed through a unique breaking system. There are three tracks of varying terrain and difficulty with a given a total of over 5km of track to experience!

Skyswing: Thrilling and exhilarating ride of 120kph with a spectacular view of Rotorua city and lakes, special designed safety harness.

Then we got down via the Skyline gondola.
