The time of year was right for our scenic ride. The hills and countryside ablaze with natures colours. We felt safe and secure inside the units. Was a pleasure watching the enjoyment and expressions on the faces of other travellers too. Staff friendly and courteous. We will go again.

My husband and I visited in November 2013. The Gondola was closed for repair so we got a ride to the top, no big deal to us. The staff was very friendly. The views were great. Had fun on The Luge. Overall it was a good experience.

Too bad about the power cut, but we at least managed to get up to the top and have a luge ride, definitely recommended

So much fun to be had. Make sure you get at least 3 rides on the luge per person. Then at the end go for a wine taste for the adults at Volcanic Hill. The Chards pretty darn yummie.

Arrived early on a beautiful sunny winter's morning during school holidays. Opted for a family package of gondola rides + 20 luge rides to share. Paid $2 for my youngest to ride on luge as passenger only. Gondola ride was fun, then arrived to the most beautiful view over lake. Grabbed our helmets and hairnets, then had long waits for... More

Took the family up to the luge and they enjoyed it a lot. The gripe I have is the team on the luge operation needs to smile and get organized. The place gets busy but the work like they are getting paid by the hour, really slow. Apart from that the place is a good day out

We have done this at least 10 times now, the kids and the adults all love it. The luge is really what drags us here again and again. I have done luge rides in other countries too, and can say that the Skyline luge is the best by far. There are tracks for different levels which is great for the... More
