V8 thrills part of the ac­tion at Auck­land Luge

Central Leader - - Sport -

Imag­ine rac­ing your favourite V8 Su­per Car down Bathurst’s Con­rod straight at 300 km per hour!

You’re in com­plete con­trol as you lean into the next bend, your hands grip­ping the steer­ing wheel, your heart pound­ing, when all of a sud­den some­one nudges you from be­hind and you spin through the sand trap.

No wor­ries, you’ve had worse spills and you’re not out of it yet.

It’s this kind of re­al­ism – the spec­tac­u­lar crashes, high speed spin outs, the bump­ing and rub­bing of real V8 rac­ing – that makes Auck­land Luge’s unique V8 Su­per Car sim­u­la­tors the ul­ti­mate, interactive rac­ing ex­pe­ri­ence. Race up to three peo­ple at once while join­ing stars like Greg Mur­phy, Rus­sell In­gall and Mark Skaife on the track.

An­other hot at­trac­tion is the new 18-hole mini golf course, which prom­ises to be one of the ma­jor at­trac­tions here.

Auck­land Luge peo­ple are still mak­ing some mi­nor ad­just­ments but would love to get your feed­back on how this course plays.

Lo­cated on East Coast Rd, Sil­verdale, just a 20minute drive from the Har­bour Bridge, Auck- land Luge could eas­ily be the most ex­cit­ing ad­ven­ture you’ll ex­pe­ri­ence th­ese hol­i­days and be­yond.

The star at­trac­tion is, of course, the luge it­self.

A first for Auck­land, the luge is a grav­ity thrill ride on a cus­tom de­signed three wheel cart guar­an­teed to de­liver you that adren­a­line rush!

A unique fea­ture has been added to en­hance the ex­pe­ri­ence - lights on the tracks to en­able great ‘night rid­ing’.

It’s a great fam­ily thrill ride for all, with younger chil­dren able to be car­ried in tan­dem with an adult.

Rid­ers re­turn via the Fly­ing Car­pet, a 330 me­tre plus up­hill land trav­e­la­tor from Italy, which will take you over a 45 me­tre bridge above a luge track - a fun ride in it­self.

Ris­ing 50 me­tres from the base, once at the top you are ready to fly down and re­peat that rush all over again choos­ing be­tween the fast medium or scenic track.

Full in­struc­tion and ‘Ride Rules’ are pro­vided prior to rid­ing the luge by the friendly Pit Crew, who re­main at­ten­tive and on hand to lend as­sis­tance.

Auck­land Luge is ab­so­lutely the new hub of Hibis­cus Coast’s gate­way of leisure ac­tiv­i­ties. Are you ready?!

They are lo­cated at 2102 East Coast Rd, Sil­verdale. Phone 094210165.
