The Skyline gondola would have to be one of the original attractions of the Queenstown area and a trip to the top is just as exciting today as compared to when I first went up 30 years ago. Now they have the added bonus of the luge tracks. Having done the Rotorua luge I wanted to see how this one compared. Just as thrilling! The views of course were outstanding.

I was there later in the day and the sun had departed the upper parts of the tracks so dress warmly and consider wearing gloves. It would be great if there was a luge track all the way to the bottom! Definitely a Queenstown highlight!

My only concern is that $15 for one photo is a little steep in price.

We took the gondola ride and 5 luge rides. Kids loved the luge so much that they ended using our rides as well. The views from the top are so great.

This is definitely suitable for everyone! Taking the gondola up to one of the best view in queenstown and luge was fun and easy to drive even for 6 years old!

Great rides up and down the mountain. The viewing deck needs to be monitored though. With so many tripods set up for long periods of time, visitors have limited access to enjoy the view.

This gondola trip is the steepest I have ever seen, at a 38-degree incline. The views along the way are breathtaking, as you can see the city and Lake Wakatipu below.
We started up the mountain at around 5:00p, just before dusk, so we were able to see the city below us in daylight; soon we saw the lights of the city begin to glimmer. Sitting at the windows in the Stratosfare Bar and looking at the city below was one of the more romantic evenings we spent in Queenstown.
