  • We felt the gondola was expensive, on the way up. But after the view of a lifetime from every angle, and a hilarious turn on the luge, we both agreed it was worth every penny.  more »
  • It's all too mechanical and out of sympathy with the surrounding majestic scenery. The restaurant is mass catering at altitude and whether its there or in a plane leaves much to be desired. Timed eati...  more »
  • We spent an afternoon here. It is very crowded and expensive for the fast ride you get. It was fun but not worth the money. We avoided it on our second time through Queenstown.  more »

  • Love the gondolas. It was so much fun going up the hill and watching the scenery go by. The view from the top was absolutely beautiful. Will be going again for a third time next time I’m in Queenstown
  • Spectacular views! A definite must go if you love seeing cities from a vantage point. As usual, go during sunset for an amazing view of Christchurch. Pro tip: use the windows on the building for a reflection shot of the entire Christchurch + mountain back drop. Truly amazing photo (see below for examples). The cable car ride up is also wonderful. One of the steepest cable car ride ever. There is also luge rides here. However, take note that the last sales close at 6/6:30pm. The luge does not go all the way down to the bottom of the mountain. It’s just at the top, but should be sufficient.
  • Great views of Queenstown - definitely worth tacking on a few extra dollars and going down the luge - lots of fun ! I would recommend leaving yourself a few hours if you do so - sometimes the queues can get quite busy. Probably one of Queenstown's best attractions.
  • I took a round trip to see Queenstown a little higher. Queenstown is already a beautiful city... but when you see it from above it's even better! If the weather is good then take the Skyline to see Queenstown becomes unavoidable !
  • Beautiful views on a clear day lovely gondola ride up. Excellent viewing platforms and other things to do once you get up to the top
