Luge

Fast Paced Freedom

Nestle into a Luge cart and zip off with friends or family to discover who has the skills to master the Luge on the longest track in the world.

The part go-cart, part toboggan is gravity fuelled with full rider control over speed and direction using a unique braking and steering system. Pull back on the bars to slow down, push forward to go and enjoy the ride. The Luge is great for any age (our oldest rider is 101) and small children can ride with adults. 

First up, ride the sweeping bends of the Scenic Track through the Redwoods Forest. After a stunning chair-lift ride back to the top, the Intermediate and Advanced tracks await. Once is never enough. 

The world famous Luge opened in 1986 and Skyline Rotorua continues to lead the Luge technology - all components are designed and manufactured in Rotorua and then shipped around the world to other Luge locations.
