Offers great views over Rotorua. Many options here for thrill seekers. We were put off doing the Luge as there was a 40 min wait. While having a bite to eat we overheard a lady say they gave up waiting as it had taken them an hour and they were still not at the start.
It was Easter Sunday when we were there so that may have been the reason. Bonus was when my husband just happened to ask what age qualified as senior and when told 60 we got in for half price. $31 usually for an adult Gondola ride only.
If you go on the Luge you come back up on ski like chairlifts and ride back down in the Gondola to the car park.
Food options were varied and looked appealing.

Admittedly we visited during Easter weekend, when it was very busy but the system for lines up the top are poorly managed. There needs to be someone guarding the lines or more clarity over the different lines (first riders/second time riders with priority) up the top as there were several ‘debarcles’ with people being upset that others were pushing in line with no one to police it. It was a very hot day and after 45 minutes of waiting to hop on you are ready for something spectacular. The luge track however was awesome and very safe, well signposted. The staff are good on safety and make sure people are not being unsafe. The gondola ride is also beautiful. (Both, including the chairlift) awesome day out for everyone.

Described as a 5 star dinning experience and that's exactly what you get. The food, staff and views are amazing. I would definitely go back.

The view from the top isn’t as breathtaking as queenstown skyline, but the luge tracks are better. They’re better maintained and more thrilling, we couldn’t recommend enough! Although be careful on that advanced track, coming into the end lanes too hot chewed my leg (and shorts) up good when the luge went over - see pic

Went up the day after Crankworx finished. It's a short but nice ride up the hill and when you get up there good views of Rotorua and the lake. There is a short nature walk with good information boards and we saw a Tui sitting in a tree - the first one in 4 weeks. You can watch other people doing stuff like the giant swing, luge and downhill mountain biking. There is also a good value (good value if you are up there anyway, it becomes expensive if you add in ticket costs to get up there) lunch buffet an in the restaurant. Obviously highly dependent on the weather but if it's fine you can get a few hours of enjoyment out of it.
