This gondola trip up the side of a mountain is beautiful. For some more $$, you can book lunch or dinner buffet, too. Reservations can be made online. The buffet was a complete madhouse, full of Orientals, Germans, and other tourists along with Kiwis. Everyone...More

What an amazing experience. The two staff members were excellent and very helpful. We had to queue for a while but worth it to watch other riders faces and reactions. It was a great experience and not as scary as I was anticipating.
