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!

Everywhere we went in Queenstown we could see the Gondola Ride so naturally we had to have a ride. It was well worth the money. The ride up was amazing and the views from the top were stunning. We spent time having morning tea in the coffee shop before leaving and were glad we'd made time for this attraction.

No matter how many times one visits Queenstown, the Gondola ride to Bob's hill is a neat experience.

We purchased a combo ticket permiting afternoon Luge and PM adult activities.

Following the Luge, we attendend a very well produced small Maori production. OK, the show is not like the big shows on the N. Island, but still neat!

Of course, we had several single malts in the bar.

Yes, the Gondola is for kids, families, and adults.

The viewing complex (wait for a sunny day) is magnificent. Lake Wakatipu, and the surrouding mountains and valleys are clear, and the sunset is magnificent.

On to the "Gourmet" buffet_Great views_excellent wines. However, the handsome buffet is of mixed quality.

In our view, the salmon is overcooked; the lamb is an inferior cut: the venison is quite good; we wonder why poor cuts of beef and pork are served: yes, the prawns are fine; give a pass to the dessert station; the cheese station is acceptable_order a Port.

Was it with it? Yes!

The tariff is appropriate for the fare.

Great views from here. The luge is a lot of fun. My husband became a 4 year old again and went speeding down the slopes and had a great time. The scenic route was stunning. I would definately suggest it.

I thought the $49 price for the gondola ride, views and 5 luges was extremely reasonable. The view and luge ride was really fun and definitely worth a walk up to the gondola some lunch and a ride one morning when your in Queenstown.
Perfect for kids, couples or anyone with a spare few hours
