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 one, three, or five times (depending on option chosen), and a chairlift will take you back to the top of the mountain between rides.

“New Zealand is a Biological Ark. Its biodiversity (variety of all life) is more primitive than most other countries.  80% of New Zealand's native species are found nowhere else on Earth.  Most of EcoWorld Aquarium’s animals come from the Marlborough Sounds whose nearshore rocky reefs are diverse, dynamic, capable of endless surprise, cold, murky, dark and difficult to visit.  These nearshore rocky reefs provide haven for rare and endangered species which contributes to their fascination which we share with you.” John Reuhman Director
