Skyline Rotorua

Skyline Enterprises was established in 1966 and has become a major tourism operator in New Zealand. Its success has been largely built on the strength of our gondola and Luge businesses in Queenstown and Rotorua.


Skyline Gondola Restaurant and Luge, Queenstown was opened in 1967 and subsequently upgraded in November 1987. The sister property Skyline Skyrides, Rotorua was opened March 1985 and has recently received a complete upgrade to its gondola and building facilities.

Both properties have become iconic NZ attractions, providing visitors with picture postcard views, fine dining experiences, and thrills on the Skyline Luge.

During the 1970’s and early 80’s, Skyline acquired or built several accommodation properties. Namely; the Mountain View Lodge, Queenstown (sold in 2003), Bluepeaks Lodge and Leisure Lodge Motor Inn.

With the cableway and accommodation businesses as a foundation, the company took a very bold move in the mid 1990’s, pioneering the casino industry in New Zealand and more recently embarked on a major investment in commercial real estate, offshore Luge ventures and the recently acquired Totally Tourism group of companies.

Like any enterprise, Skyline has continually reinvested in its businesses to ensure that Skyline stay in the forefront of our field. With this said, Skyline has been and continues to be a fun company, proudly running great New Zealand activities and providing entertainment and enjoyment to our millions of visitors.
