Self Drive Rail Cars In Rotorua
Experience rail like never before. With nothing ahead of you but the unobstructed curve of the rail stretching out into the distance, the scenery drifting by and the clickety-clack of the rail beneath you.
Spaced apart, groups of RailCruisers travel 10 kilometres together from Mamaku Railway Station to Tarukenga Railway Station. At Tarukenga, your Rail Cruisers then turns back to Mamaku.
The relaxing experience travels at a leisurely 20km/hr and features audio commentary to provide a fascinating insight into a unique piece of New Zealand railway history.
The RailCruiser V3000 is the world’s first fully automated, state of the art petrol-electric four seat self-drive hybrid rail vehicle. It features comfortable seats with unobstructed views, is fitted with clear drop down waterproof sides and comes with windscreen wipers.
This is the ultimate way to experience a railway.
