Join your driver/guide for a 75-minute narrated coach ride through Tauranga and the North Island's breathtaking countryside, to Skyline Rotorua's skyride cableway. Board an eight-passenger gondola and climb the slopes of Mount Ngongotaha for sweeping views of Lake Rotorua.

At the top, make your way to the luge track for a fun-filled gravity ride on a three-wheel cart. The cart uses a unique breaking and steering system, giving the rider full control. Your exciting visit includes three thrilling luge rides, where you will travel at speed along the stunning tracks that wind through the magnificent forest vistas. After each ride, return to Skyline's top complex by chair lift.

Speed addicts will have plenty of opportunity to try their luck on the advanced track with its challenging tunnels and spirals. There is a choice of three tracks with a combined total of three miles of track to ride -- once is never enough!

You can purchase additional luge rides, refreshments and lunch. For an additional charge, you can visit some of Skyline's other attractions which include the Sky Swing, SkyVue 4-D Motion Theater, and scenic walking tracks.
