For the BEST mountain biking on the North Island, this is the place to go, Very well priced Gondola lift passes and the best groomed tracks you can ride on. Great for beginners and Advanced Downhill riders alike.
Great place to spend the day. Especially loved the luge rides, there are three tracks here as opposed to Queenstown which has two and the third track was super fun!
Went with a group of friends visiting for the the first time and the loved the ride up to the mountain and the luge. Highly recommend this activity.
We ventured up the gondolas to lunch in at Stratosfare Rotorua restaurant for a very special occasion. The service was exemplemary with our table being attended to regularly for beverages or to clear dishes, the vista looking out above all of Rotorua was breathtaking whilst we enjoyed the banquet fare of delicious salads, soups, seafood bar, hot meats, accompaniments and dessert. For a banquet restaurant, it's a definite stand out and everyone was well sated and in high spirits. And the true testament were the empty plates! Highly recommended for family or large groups to suit all palates!
Awesome day out, however lines were soooo long and the Advance track was once again closed. I have been here many times and not once have I seen the Advanced track actually open. They kept saying the track was too wet to ride, however judging by the overgrowth and state of the track, I'd say it hasn't been open in a few months. Bit of a rip that you still have to pay full price for less tracks than advertised!
Other than that, luge is awesome fun and the scenery is beautiful. The skyswing and ziplining are fun additions to the place, lots of variety for the whole family.
You might have done Gondola ride before, but this place doesn't only offers you this. The real fun lies in doing the luge. Very different fun filled experience. Even the 4 D cinema is a memorable experience.
Really nice place for mountain biking and also for kids and family! I'd like to rate it higher but the queues to buy the passes were extremely awfully long! We don't know if it was because the Queen's birthday weekend and there was more people than it was expected but we thought they have to do something about it if it's like that every weekend.
