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!

“Excellent fun and a must do.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013

The Gondola and Luge was great fun for $49 for the trip up and 5 goes on the luge.

The queue was small and swift to get on the gondola and it only took a few minutes to reach the sumit.
From the top, the views over Queenstown, the lake and surrounding countryside are amazing.

We then went up to the Luge and had 5 rides on it. It was absolute joy to race down the track and we could have done it 10 times without getting bored!!... You can buy more times if you do want to though.

Other facilities at the top of the gondola are restaurants and shops that did seem to be reasonably priced.

“Great views, nice experience”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2013

The views were stunning from the top of the Gondola and as you were going up. My sister really loved the luge and would have ridden it all day if she could have! You do feel quite safe in the Gondola, but the return journey is much more relaxing than the way up. I feel that it was a bit overpriced (and the centre at the peak is basically a huge tourist trap) but it was a great experience for the views alone.
