Guide to BEST Rotorua Luge Deals at Skyline
Correct at time of publication on Roam the Gnome. Please check with venue for updates. We apologise in advance if there have been any changes we are unaware of. All prices in NZ dollars (or US dollars as stated)
Did you know there’s discount luge Rotorua deals for families, with a gondola ride up dormant volcano, Mount Ngongotaha included in the price.
As a guide, we bought the Family Pass – a Family Gondola ride for the whole family, plus two luge rides each, for $107 NZ for 2 adults and 2 kids.
The second go, Jack rode tandem with me.
(Holding onto the luge steering wheel and brakes was tough work for his little hands, so once down on the luge alone was enough.)
Consequently, we had one extra ticket to use up.
I queued with Ned, ready to send him down alone for one last trip, but they let both of us ride.
Thanks Skyline team!

Fun at Skyline Luge Rotorua
Luge riding is a gravity-fuelled adventure for all ages.
There’s three tracks – scenic, intermediate and advanced – so you can go as fast, or as slow, as you want to!
You, and your braking system, are in charge.
5km of Tracks
Drive, twist and turn along 5km of tracks with:
- epic corners
- tunnels and
Rotorua Luge Scenic Track
I loved the Scenic track the most.
It may not be as fast, but Jack and I laughed the whole way down!
The Rotorua Luge Chairlift
The Rotorua downhill luge ride is super fun, but there’s only one way back to the top, via chairlift.
Let me say this – if you are afraid of heights, hang on tight and close your eyes.
Hold tight to your wriggly little ones too.
Rotorua Luge Chairlift exit
Cleverly, and thankfully, you don’t see the sheer, steep drops until it’s too late.
There’s nothing to do but slow your breathing, and put all your effort into staying calm.
Avert your eyes from the dropped helmets along the way!
