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!

“Downhill Mountain Biking Heaven”
Reviewed 12 February 2017 via mobile

Teenage boys and their Dad happily spent days riding down from the gondola. Very happy! Great service. Tickets well priced. A 50 ride ticket enough for 6 days. Great service from all local bike shops. The stand out was the Trek dealer in Arrowtown. And the gondola was much appreciated as a part of the 4 hour return walk up to the summit of Ben Lomond. Keep up the services Skyline and we'll keep coming

“Fun luge rides must try and great views”
Reviewed 12 February 2017 via mobile

Luge paths have great views and fun. Don't forget to take gloves if you are planning in cold weather to control luge.

“Wonderful views.”
Reviewed 12 February 2017

The views over Queenstown, Lake Wakatipu and towards the Crown Range are fabulous and it is definitely worth taking a ride up in the gondola if you do not have time to walk in this area - which unfortunately we didn't. We did not do the luge but we did follow the path up to just a little above the luge and even though this was not much higher than the top of the gondola, I thought the views were even better here, especially towards the Crown Range. Sadly we didn't have time to walk up Ben Lomond!

“Love the luge”
Reviewed 11 February 2017 via mobile

The luge in Queenstown is so much fun. Totally worth getting more than 2 rides as for the first one they make you complete the beginners course before you can ride the advanced course and the advanced course is obviously more fun! Once you've had a go you'll be hooked so just go all out and buy 5+ luge rides!!

“Great view but Pricey”
Reviewed 11 February 2017 via mobile

The 5 minute ride to the top of the peak overlooking Queenstown is enjoyable but short. The viewing platform gives a great perspective of the town, and if you are lucky you might get to see a bungee jumper, but it is pretty small and would get very crowded on busy days. Once at the top there are a couple of quite steeps walks you can do, but all the other activities are at an additional cost. Not sure if it was worth the $33 each given that we were only up there for about 45 mins.
