Overview
Ride the Rotorua Gondola to the top of Mt Ngongotaha and soak in sweeping views during the 10-minute 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.
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 for 10 minutes to reach 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.

Gondola

Always enjoy going up to the top of the gondola. Especially riding the luge. The view from there is wonderful on a fine day you can see for miles.

Rotovegas day out

Day trip to Rotorua with visiting friends. The Luge and Gondola are a must. The prices are to be expected. Cashiers and ground staff friendly and welcoming. However it stops there. The overseas backpackers overseeing the chairlifts are rude. The cafe staff are standing around...More
