Overview
Ride the Rotorua Gondola to the top of Mt Ngongotaha and soak in sweeping views during the ride. You’ll overlook Lake Rotorua and the city, and can spend as much time as you like at the summit. Have the option to descend by luge on one of three tracks — basic, intermediate or advanced. The luge provides a fun ride for all ages, no prior experience required.
Highlights
  • View Rotorua and its surroundings from the Rotorua Gondola
  • Ascend Mt Ngongotaha in a glass-enclosed gondola cabin 
  • Have the option to take a fun luge ride, great for people of all ages
  • Spend as much time as you like at the summit of Mt Ngongotaha
What to Expect
Head to the Rotorua Gondola base, which is located only six miles (10 km) outside the city center. Once aboard the glass-enclosed gondola car, ride to the summit of Mt Ngongotaha, which stands 1,597 feet (487 meters) tall. Gaze over Lake Rotorua and the surrounding region from the gondola and mountain top, and when ready, return to the gondola to descend to the base. Alternatively, you can choose to the luge ride option for your descent. Choose from three luge tracks—basic, intermediate or advanced—to zip down the mountain. Select a package with one, three, or five luge rides, and relax while the chairlift delivers you back to the mountain top in between rides. It's a great activity for adventurous kids and adults alike.

This was a very fun day out. The luge is heaps of fun and the adults in our group got quite competitive by the end, racing each other down the tracks! The advanced track is fun and you get air over the jumps. We did the 5 x ride pass and it was just the right amount of rides

We were a bit unsure of this package initially, but once we did our first luge ride, the 3 we'd paid for didn't seem enough. Wonderful thrilling ride where you can go as fast or as slow as you like. Very safe also. The view was spectacular of Lake Rotorua and the cafe and gift

Love the luge rides. Awesome night out. The little bit of drizzly didn't put a damper on it at all. Did the cherry blossom walk... must come back when the blossoms are out, it would have looked amazing. Great couple of hours.

The cherry blossoms are just stunning around the end of September.

Our family had planned to get the gondola to the top and have a little bush walk and go back down. My 4 year old begged and begged to do the luge which we hadn’t even considered for a 4 and 2 year old! We gave it a go- husband with 4 year old together and me with 2 year old
