A Luge Ride in New Zealand is a fun filled, gravity ride downhill on a three-wheel cart. These carts have a unique braking and steering system that enables you to alter course and speed at will. It can be as fast or gentle as you like - you're in control. Luge rides are a fun family activity as small children can ride with their parents and older children can ride their own luge. Luge rides often accompany Gondola Rides, as you ride the Gondola up the hill, and then ride the luge down.
