The Luge is a fun ride for all ages. A World 'First' proudly designed and built in Rotorua, the Luge is a fun filled gravity ride on a 3 wheel cart. The unique braking and steering system provides the rider full control and allows them to travel as fast or slow as they wish.
Three separate concrete sealed tracks wind down through the redwood trees. A scenic track with viewing bays at great locations for taking photographs allows a leisurely trip down whilst enjoying the panorama.
Fun for all ages with children under 6 being able to be carried in tandem. Riders return to the top of the luge on a specially designed chairlift.
Over 5 million riders have enjoyed the Luge ride experience to date. Full instructional information and key do's and don'ts are provided prior to riding the Luge.
Enjoy a 2 kilometre scenic downhill ride through the redwood trees, with plenty of rest areas to stop on the way down to take photographs.

The Scenic Luge is an all weather attraction that is lit up for twilight luging during the summer months (see details below).
