Owner description: Take a scenic Gondola ride to enjoy Queenstown's most spectacular views. At the top of Bob's Peak there's more to enjoy! For an adrenalin rush catch the chairlift to ride our unique Luge, a non-motorised cart for a 800m blast of downhill fun. Then relax and dine in our taste of New Zealand buffet restaurant open for lunch or dinner, or sample lighter fare in the market kitchen. In the evening our Stargazing astronomy tours and the Kiwi Haka performances entertain and inspire. Come up for a visit to Skyline Queenstown today!

“Great Views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2012

The gondola is well worth having a ride on, especially if you are as lucky as we were and have a perfect day. It has the best views of Queenstown and the lake. As well as the mountains surrounding the lake. Just beautiful and you can enjoy a meal or snack at the top.

“When it's sunny - DO IT!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2012

Great ride to the gondola centre and the Luge is really fun! Do not buy 1 luge ticket as you will want to do it again and again! When the weather is crystal clear the views are stunning (to say the least) you should definately take the ride to the top! It can get quite warm up there even if it's windy in town. Prepare for sunburn aswell!

Great buffet. The Maori cultural show was great. Very expensive but a one off that I would recommend

“Perfect day = go on the gondola”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2012

After a day visit to Queenstown full with rain we got a perfect day the day we left. So on the gondola we go! It had been over 20 years since I have been on the gondola and wow! Huge developments. We even had to line up for 20 minutes to get on. Now it has the luge, mountain bike track and upgraded buildings and function area. The views are still amazing and today - perfect weather and snow cap mountains. Even photos to buy! Great way to fill in time before our 3pm flight back home.
