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.

Our group of seven booked the gondola with two luge rides as a package. To us it was intended to fill the morning of the day we had planned to attend a "hangi" dinner. So it could have been terrible and we would have been all right with it. But it wasn't! Since we were pre-paid
