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!

“Great views, great riding”
Reviewed 8 February 2017 via mobile

The downhill mountain biking are Skyline is fantastic. This is the second year in a row we have come for the riding and it didn't disappoint. It's a must for those into anything from easy to technical tracks.
the luge is also fun with a group of friends. And my partner proposed to me at the top with the views so this will be one place I won't forget.

“Nice ride to classic view overlooking city”
Reviewed 8 February 2017

We had to wait in line about 20 minutes to get on a gondola, but it was worth it. At the top, there was a view of the city, Lake Wakatipu and the Remarkables mountain range. We only stayed about 15 minutes because we did not want to eat there or ride the luges. Overall, it was definitely worth it if you are a one time visitor, but a little pricey for what you get.

“Go for the View and Expect the Crowds to Annoy You”
Reviewed 8 February 2017

Great view. That's about it. Super touristy. Probably better if you have kids as there are some of the other activities like the luge. The place was packed when we went and while this isn't Skyline's fault, many of the tourists visiting were so absorbed in taking a million selfies that it took a long time to get on the deck to even see the view. If you run into bad crowds, walk up the hill a bit further towards the luge center and it seems to clear out for a more unobstructed view.

Overpriced but seems inline with similar attractions.
