Attraction details
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!

Went there because we stumbled upon it and had nothing better to do. We nearly turned away because of the price but glad we didn't! The view from the top is amazing and the gondola ride is nice too. The bar at the top is nice for a few drinks. I would set aside 2 hours for this attraction and make sure you take heaps of photos from the top!
Didn't try the luge but it looked fun!

One cannot possibly do a review on any particular part of the Queenstown area without giving the lasting impression one is left with:-
Queenstown ...WOWTOWN. We spent 3 wonderful days here , It would be impossible to do justice with words; to experience the majesty and beauty is something everyone should see at least once in their lifetime. The mist shrouded Remarkables , the Gondola and lunch ( what value:!), the lakeside drive to Glenorchy(misty the first -we just had to go the next day) we ran out of WOWs on these days. Arrowtown. The beautiful Oaks Lakes apartment lakeside with the changing colours of the lake, the sky and the Remarkables. I live in the beautiful lakes area of eastern Victoria and visited England, Scotland and Ireland last year and several times to Tasmania and most of eastern Australia from south to north but nothing compares with Queenstown New Zealand. WOW!
My partner was very apprehensive about the Gondola ride however this was washed away by the panorama spread before us and completely evaporated when the gourmet lunch panorama met her eyes.
Without doubt this was worthy of further WOWS

We were awe·struck with the view the cable car offered while it went up. The lake looks stunning in sun and the view was memorable one.

Scary, but an absolute must do on your list - we went on this so we could see the awesome views at sunset and we weren't disappointed

Kids of all ages enjoy the luge. We liked watching our grandsons speed by. They loved it. It isn't only for kids. It's a Queenstown experience.
