Rotorua Gondola with optional Luge Ride

14 Reviews

  • Location: Rotorua, New Zealand
  • Duration: Varies (approx.)
  • Tour code: 5342GONDOLA
Enjoy the spectacular panoramas over Lake Rotorua and the city as you ride in a gondola to the top of Mount Ngongotaha. At the summit, you can choose to take the gondola back down the mountain or go for an exciting luge ride on one of three purpose-built tracks.
Mount Ngongotaha is located only 6 miles (10 km) from the center of Rotorua and offers a great day out. Board the gondola for an approximately 10-minute climb to the 1,597-foot (487-meter) summit, where you’ll find amazing views over the city, Lake Rotorua and surrounding areas. At the top, take some time to soak up the views before re-boarding the gondola for the downward ride.

Or, add a bit of excitement to your day by selecting the optional luge ride. You’ll whiz down the mountain on a three-wheeled cart, which has a unique braking and steering system that makes it fun and easy. There are three luge tracks to choose from, with six entry points: the scenic route with a leisurely 1.2-mile (2-kilometer) ride through a redwood forest; the intermediate track with chicanes, a tunnel and fabulous views over the city and lake; or the advanced track with tight turns, dips and a tunnel for a thrilling, adrenaline-pumping ride. Getting up and down a mountain has never been so much fun!

If you choose the Luge Option, you can ride the luge five times, and a chairlift will take you back to the top of the mountain between rides.
