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!

We have been to Queenstown a few times but the first thing we do on a nice day is go up the Skyline even if its just for the view. Up the top there is a great bar and cafe, a restaurant (buy the food ticket before you go up its cheaper) if you are looking for food. The Luge is so much fun, and if you are young enough do it.

We bought tickets for the gondola and the luge and the gondola was fab, you could see so far obviously because you were so far up. The luge was great fun and the staff were very helpful and friendly. The kids even my four year old absolutely loved it. It definitely is a must if you visit New Zealand South Island

We bought tickets for the gondola and dinner, and then bought the luge once up the mountain. We had planned to go bungy jumping but it was closed that day as they had no bookings. We went on the Luge and there is a sky ride to take you to the top (fairly high and open if you are scared of heights) it was lots of fun riding down the hill. It was a great view from the top and a cafe where you can get a drink and enjoy the views.

The ride up on the gondola was fun - it takes about 5 mins and the views are great - it is a little scary but once up the top it is totally worth it.

We took the Gondola ride because we wanted to see Queenstown in it's geographical context - and we were not disappointed. The views are amazing - the ascent (and descent) are fast and efficient but without being frighteningly so.

The cafe at the top of the Gondola ride provides a variety of drinks and snacks at prices comparable to those down at ground level - so there is no need to fear being 'ripped off' by being a 'captive audience'.

It's breezy and cool at the top - so be sure to take a fleece or jacket. As well as admiring the view there's the luge to ride or the bungy jumping to try. Enjoy watching if you don't wish to join them. Whilst we were there a helicopter twice landed on the helipad beside the top Gondola station and there was a constant stream of downhill cyclists to watch.

Well worth the $26 return trip on the Gondola.

Excellent long luge with fast track for the experts, great family racing. Gondala views superb. It was cold and quite a bit of snow even in October - be prepared!
