Rotorua Gondola with optional Luge 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.

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
