Nice Trip
May 2021
Fantastic Views at the top with restaurant and shop. Luge rides are on smallish tracks but there are some picnic tables up higher than the building to sit and enjoy the views in the sun.

The luge is a real highlight
May 2021 • Family
Whether you’re after stunning views of Queenstown, a bite to eat or some adventure, there is something for everyone at the Skyline. We took our 2 year old up for a few rides on the Luge and she absolutely loved it! I was in a knee scooter and a bit anxious about access but it was not an issue at all to get around. The staff were super helpful getting on and off the gondola and there is lift access to the main level of the Skyline. Would highly recommend a visit here if you’re in Queenstown.

I was very disappointed in the whole experience, especially seeing all the trees that had to be cleared from the mountain.

Thank you for your feedback. The trees being removed near the Gondola cables are Wilding Conifers. They threaten and replace native plants, and are also a threat to native fauna. Nonetheless, we’re disappointed to hear your recent visit to Skyline Queenstown didn’t meet your expectations. Should you wish to discuss your experience further, please don't hesitate to email us at queenstownsales@skyline.co.nz. Kind Regards, Skyline Queenstown

Quick trip up the gondola
May 2021 • Couples
Went up the gondola and rode the luge an couple of times then stopped for a drink afterwards
The luge was brilliant, drinks surprisingly well priced (they’ve got you there so could charge whatever they want) and the views are stunning ! Just world class !

It’s the view
May 2021 • Couples
It’s a place just to make sure you do on a nice sunny day. We went out and enjoyed the view, the fresh air and took great photos. There are things to do at the top but we opted just for the view and walk around the viewing areas. A great way to introduce yourself to Queenstown.

Just do it!
May 2021 • Couples
Don’t bother reading the reviews just go an do it!! This is a lot of fun for everyone of any age group. After the luge ride we had dinner at the buffet, book that in as well! The food is delicious and well beyond what we expected (save room for dessert)

Book an Uber there so you can enjoy a wine and a view

Long way
May 2021 • Couples
It’s a long way up there - when looking out over Queenstown you realise how high it really is !
Expensive to go on gondola but it was a cool thing to do and we had a coffee when we got there .

No parking
May 2021 • Couples
No parking and only one disabled park 🙄 We tried twice to park today this morning and this afternoon. Unfortunately there are only a few parks and one disabled park rightly in use. The rest were pretty much full of work trucks and a staff car park. While I know work needs to take place surely some free bus service or bus for all workers could be provided? My husband asked in reception if we could park somewhere maybe near cones, we have a disability card. No luck tried the next carpark below No luck. The next No camper vans 😤.

So left twice very disappointed. A shame when we are constantly told to support tourism and most of it shut.

Fun and views to be had!
Apr 2021
Went up the gondola and what a great view all the way up. Paid for the luge so we did three trips on that. Would have done more but out of time. You can go up the gondola and walk around and then back down again. Or you can go up the gondola then go up the Luge one, you then take the luge down (but not all the way - just to the bottom of luge area - then get the luge gondola up again) It was great fun and we thoroughly enjoyed it. Staff are excellent and you have safety lesson before you go down the luge first time. Would def do it again. Great views going down again on the main gondola to the base. Also got a few pics of us on the luges gondola.

Fantastic Day Out
Mar 2021 • Family
Lots of easy parking right outside. The queue to purchase tickets moved very quickly. Spectacular Gondola ride up through the trees and magnificent views of Queenstown. Lots of space to spread out once at the top and lots of areas to take photos. The luge was well run and easy to get on. A lot of fun.
