NZ Trip: Rotorua – Skyline Gondola & Luge and ZORB

There are so many fun things to do in Rotorua! After Wai-O-Tapu, we went on the Skyline gondola and luge. They are the same people responsible for the luge at Sentosa. Adrian and Nav went first and then came back up on the chair lift. The last time I was in NZ, I couldn’t do the luge cos I was 5 months pregnant with Anya. So I was very happy to be able to do it this time, again with Anya. We took the scenic route but it was still pretty exciting! Anya was a little nervous on the chair lift on the way up but I think she had fun.

We also went to ZORB! Adrian and Navin did the Zydro together where they sloshed around in the water inside the ball rolling down the hill. Although warm water was used, I think the guys were freezing afterwards. Angie and I did the Zorbit separately. We each jumped into the ball, got strapped into a harness inside, and rolled head over heels down the hill. It was really fun but the Zorbit was definitely a bit scary!
