Skyline Queenstown provides an exhilarating way to reach the fir-covered Bob's Peak, one of the area's most recognizable natural features. 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. Before you embark on your luge descent, stop by the peak's restaurant, souvenir shop, and observation deck.

  • Nice view. Took the gondola and luge package (2, 3, 5, 6 rides options available). My friends and I got the 6 rides package. Definitely did not regret it. Would go again. Prices are reasonable as well. Remember to head to the lookout deck at the skyline. Wonderful panoramic view.
  • A must see and do experience when in Queenstown. Well worth it. Buy your tickets in the town centre to avoid the massive ques and try and go during the week in peak tourist season. Plan to spend at least half a day and make sure to try the buffet lunch, so much food and choices in a very well presented way. We did the luge ride, such fun. There's down hill mountain biking which also looks like fun. Awesome views and very well run.
  • I've done luge many times in Rotorua (many years ago) and this was my wife's first time. It was a nice day and we got the Gondola and 7 luge ride pass. Staff are very pleasant and professional and ensure all first rides are given thorough explanation on how to use the luge. helmets are provided and good clean condition. Ride and course good and can reach some good speeds. We had a great time. Visited October 2015.
  • These guys can handle the heat. And when I say heat I mean a bus full of 40 non English speaking tourists with 1 crazy interpreter, who has no concept of lines, or order. Great to see the team take charge and make everything run smoothly. Kudos to the blond (irish?) woman working this morning.
  • The views are incredible. Try and spend as much time as you can up here. The luge is incredible fun. Would recommend at least 3 times as the first time you have to go down the less steep blue track, only then are you allowed on the faster red track.

Where to stay in Queenstown

To enjoy views of Lake Wakatipu in a luxury setting, try one of the many boutique and long-established hotels of the downtown area. As a resort town, Queenstown also offers a range of more modest accommodations, ideal for adventurers, backpackers, and those eager to spend more time outside than in. These come in the form of hostels, rental apartments, campsites, and suburban motels. A good local bus service provides connections between the downtown and suburban areas, and out to the surrounding attractions, and many accommodations offer package tours.
