I have eatn and gone on the rides. All are enjoyable but the view is the bestthing about the place. If you want to do something relaxing just even go for the gondola ride and dinner

The view from the gondola ride is spectacular. The luge is not just for kids. We had all ages ranging from 35-71 racing each other down the hill. What a rush!

Everyone in our family loved the day we spent here. Our 4 and 6 year olds rode with a parent while our 10 year old rode solo. So much fun was had, heaps of laughs. I though the cafe food was great value and full of variety. The 4D movie theatre was closed for maintenance unfortunately (often that's the case... More

The view at the top is really good. When going up with the gondola, you can really enjoy the lake and surroundings. The luge is a must do, lots of fun, even with 3 kids (8, 5 and 2), they all loved it.

Enjoyed the ride on the gondola but the best part of the day was lugeing. The kids and grown ups all really enjoyed it. The view was also brilliant and the cafe served great snacks.

Skyline was great but probably better as a group activity not solo. Didn't use the luge but a go on the Zipline loads of fun defiantly a worthy experience, great for a thrill seeker but slow enough to take in the ride as well as get the adrenaline rush. Followed by a sedate crawl up the hill on the lift... More

We enjoyed the Skyline and the luge, we booked through an external website and got a really great deal, otherwise we probably wouldn't have visited at full price rates. The lolly shop was very expensive, we didn't eat at the cafe but it was busy. It was clean and the staff very friendly. The luge is great for all ages... More

An artificial construct on the hillside. Fine if you don't mind spending a fortune for every ride you take. The restaurant gondola combination was worth the money.
