A top city attraction, Skyline Rotorua treats guests to gorgeous views, fantastic food and plenty of family fun. A host of attractions awaits travellers, with some of New Zealand’s best mountain bike trails winding their way down the mountain. Kids love the colourful Jelly Belly store, with the Volcanic Hills Winery & Tasting Room offering guests a chance to sample handcrafted drops from New Zealand's most prestigious winemaking regions.
Riding the luge is a must for thrill-seekers, with a trio of tracks seeing riders twist and turn their way through a beautiful forest. The Skyswing and the Zoom Zipline are also popular bets, with the Stratosfare Restaurant and Bar serving up some of Rotorua’s best fare, in luxe surrounds. For something a little more laid back, the Food Market Kitchen serves up everything from snacks and sandwiches to coffee and ice cream.
The Skyline Rotorua complex is situated just minutes from the Rotorua city centre, at the peak of Mt Ngongotaha. Access is via the Gondola, which ferries passengers to the top of the mountain via a 900-metre long cableway system.
While the Skyline Rotorua complex shines a spotlight on its ultra-modern attractions, it dates back to ancient times. The area has been settled by indigenous New Zealanders since 1350 AD, with Maori chiefs favouring the lake for its bubbling geothermic activity.
