Amazing view

Wow, so worth doing this if in Queenstown. Spectacular view from Restaurant, so much fun going from the Gondola, up the ski lift and riding down on the Luge. We were a little hesitant at first but it was a lot of fun. Don't forget...More

Room with a view

The gondola ride was amazing but not quite as long as I thought it would be and the view was outstanding. I would recommend it to any traveler, local or international.
