Are you Rotorua's 15 millionth Luge rider?
Posted on Wednesday, 17 April 2013
Twenty-eight years after opening with its world-first Luge operation, Skyline Rotorua is about to hit a huge milestone – its 15 millionth Luge ride. Based on electronic record-taking, the milestone is expected to fall sometime in April.
Skyline Rotorua General Manager, Bruce Thomasen, says the milestone is a “mind-blowing” development for the operation.
“Our Luge operation was a world-first and it was the only commercial Luge operation in New Zealand until Skyline Queenstown added a Luge to its site in 1997,” says Mr Thomasen.
“Now, more than 750,000 Luge rides are hosted at the Rotorua site every year – with visitors usually riding more than once!”
The first competition will involve visitors giving their best pukana (haka face) while experiencing the Luge, while the other invites visitors to post their own fun photos of Skyline Rotorua in general on the attraction’s website page. The photos with the most public votes will win.
The lucky person who completes the 15 millionth ride will win a trip for two to Queenstown including return flights Auckland – Queenstown thanks to Grabaseat, 2 nights’ accommodation at Blue Peaks Lodge, a helicopter flight with the Helicopter Line, and dinner for two at the spectacular Skyline Queenstown restaurant.
Entries for the photo competition will close on Friday, May 5. Visit the photo gallery to enter or vote now »
