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!

“sky high fun!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2014

gondola trip is a great way to travel up the mountain - views are spectacular.
Luge is excellent fun - you will want to ride it a few times!

“Great View”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2014

If in Queenstown you must take the Gondola if only for the view, Sunset a great special time.

“Good clean fun”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2014

Myself and the wife decided to try the luge since we were going to take the gondola anyway.

Turned out to be great fun, like real life Mario Kart lol. Was pretty quiet when we were there which was good - no queues - but would also be good fun with a group of people for mini races etc.

Definitely worth while for anyone with kids I'd say or for big kids too. As a bonus, some helmets have GoPro mounts on them so you can record the fun if you have a camera which we did.

Not super cheap but nothing in Queenstown is, so is priced accordingly I suppose.

We went later in the day so were there for a beautiful sunset behind the mountains. We also took a quiet, well marked walk through the woods near the lookout.

“Loads of fun for the family!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2014

Gondola is a nice ride, the view is amazing and the Luge is a MUST! Didnt realise how much time you could spend up the mountain - pack a picnic or a good book and settle in for the day! Loads of touristy stuff to do...but the view is AMAZING! The Lelly Belly shop is a must!!!
