Love the luge rides and we took 3 rides. My kids even tried the zip line. Kids have to be aged 8 or 9 and above to know how to manoveur and manage the speed. Else they can also hop on with an adult. Scenic is nice and a longer ride compared to intermediate. Intermediate is exciting with all the turns!

I bought the Gondola with 3 luge rides. It was worth it! Gondola + luge + chairlift GREAT experience! I shared 1 luge ride with my sister. She said the intermediate ride was better than the scenic for the 2nd round. I did not explore the intermediate becoz I feared it will have more difficult turns to take, but my sister said it was just a faster trail and shorter. The scenic ride was quite long...

Worth the stop!

fun!!! my friend and I went three times around the track twice on the scenic route and once on the Intermediate Route. The Expert Route or whatever it was called was closed that day so that was a bummer. but fun nonetheless!

We love the gondola ride and the luge. However, the staff were confused with the vouchers. Took them a while to figure it out. Thought for a moment they would not accept them.

My Viator booking for a family of four was really good value. We each had the Gondola trip up and back down, plus five luge rides each! It was huge fun and the great weather was an added bonus. I would definitely use Viator again.

Good fun and very well organized. Shame the cafe at the top had no wifi though, as it was New Years Day and we wanted to Skype family.

This place is a great stop if you go to Rotorua. We had a great time riding the Luge! The Gondola has some really great views of the Lake.

So much fun - we're almost 60 and thoroughly enjoyed this - with arthritis in spine and knee replacements in both knees - getting down to ground level to get on and off the luge was hard but hubby helped me - and I wouldn't have missed this - such awesome fun!! Don't let age or health issues stop you

My four year old daughter especially loved the scenic track on the Luge.

It's our second trip back to Rotorua (especially to do the LUGE again!!)...Loved it just as much this time! Got there early (to avoid crowds and queues) - good move! By the time we'd done our 5 luge rides, the queues were very long. The Staff wear shirts saying, "Once is NEVER enough!" Too true! Definitely glad we did the 5 rides each...could've kept going! Hadn't intended buying photos this time around (as we did that 3 years ago) but the family photo in the Gondola was so lovely we had to buy it. Surprisingly (these days!) we didn't need to wear safety shoes and long trousers...shorts and 'flip flops' were allowed. We were even allowed to carry a back pack or camera bag as we went hurtling down the tracks...although there are lockers for NZ$2 if required. Kids of all ages can ride...either on parent's lap (cute!) or on their own (from about 6 or 7 I'd reckon). We even saw an old grandma putt-putting along which was lovely. It truly is a great way for entire families to have a lot of fun together. The chairlift back up to the top of the mountain is fun too. We wish there was a Luge track in Brisbane (and 'dream' of starting one up ourselves). Probably cheaper to fly back to Rotorua next time we get the urge. DO IT!!!!

Both the gondola and luge were fun. We had a race on the luge (no guts, no glory) and hit some good speeds. It was so easy to drive too, you'll pick it up very quickly!
• Submitted 02 Nov 2011
So fun! A must do! This is such a neat little attraction in Rotorua. The gondola offers great views of the city and the luge is a thrill! There are a couple of courses (beginner, intermediate, advanced) and each one is so much fun. You actually get air on the advanced track and hit top speeds! I could have spent all day on that track!

Very nice gondola ride over dirt bike track. Beautiful scenery and smooth ride. Restaurant was nothing remarkable and very crowded and noisy.

We went on a rainy day. So spoilt a bit. Good time to spend. The views are excellent.
