Start at the gondola base, just a short walk from downtown Queenstown. From there, enjoy the ride up with sweeping vistas of the surrounding mountains, lake, and city below. Once at the top, you can choose from several luge rides, designed to provide an exciting experience with unbeatable views of the region's pristine natural scenery.

  • We bought gondola with 5 luge rides. A bit cold on the chair lift going up the luge, our hand was pretty numb, but def love it. And we actually wanted to do it again on our last day in Queenstown, but...  more »
  • We only had one ticket at first but had such fun that we bought a package. Our day was sunny and nice, the luges were easy to operate, and the track for experienced operators was a hoot. You can't tak...  more »
  • For old and young a great fun! Even more fun as a Go-Kart and is completely eco-friendly. The route is super! You again! Price only discourages, but you must have done!

  • Would give zero if possible. If you are from the states, don’t waste your time. You’ve been on a cooler gondola than this. The ride up is 90 seconds to a “peak” that is lower elevation than the road you have to take to get to town from the north. This takes you to a glorified gift shop surrounded by a shoddy four foot observation deck that you will have to elbow twenty Asian grandmothers out of the way to get a picture from. The “luge” is a plastic cart with handlebars and breaks that takes you down a hundred foot track bumper to bumper with more Asian grandmothers. And speaking of bumper to bumper... finding a parking spot took us 20 minutes. I can genuinely say that the coolest part was the jelly bean mural recreations they had inside... For $35NZ this tourist trap is a waste of your time and money. Drive to the top of Lindis pass or Coronet peak for free and get a better view.
  • I believe this is a great highlight in Queenstown. Have both activities for kids and parents. The view on the top is stunning especially at sunset time. So my suggestion is that you may come to take the cable carbin late afternoon and enjoy the night view. I did not have any food but had some coffee and drink. It is good anyway. This is a must see when you are in Queenstown. Enjoy.
  • Great view! Got the gondola, luge and buffet lunch package but would not recommend the buffet lunch. The food was very average, there was probably one choice we actually enjoyed. We went at 1.45pm and we got the last scraps of food as service was finishing up, so didn't seem like we got our moneys worth. Probably worth while going to the marketplace Cafe instead.
  • A must visit in Queenstown. Amazing view from up there. The activity LUGE is very popular and good for kids and adult. I can tell that a new lane is on the way by all the construction work going on here.
  • The buffet restaurant on the top of gondola base is great. Good value for money if you purchase the gondola & buffet combo ticket. Lunch is cheaper & give enough time to 15:00 to enjoy your relax & delicious meal. As long as people don't compare the buffet to fine dinning restaurant.
