  • There is also a cable car ascent on Bob's peak day travelcards from where you can admire a fantastic panorama. Don't miss a drink in the bar seated at a table watching the horizon!

  • Great views. But don’t turn up more than 15 minutes early as you have to wait like cattle to get into the restaurant. The desserts were great!  more »

  • We come up here to experience the thrill of the luge mostly, but the views from the top are gorgeous on their own, and well worth the visit up to the top if that’s all you do. The cafe is pretty good, and has a good variety of lights meals to choose from. You can also find plenty of seating both indoors and out to take in the vistas that abound. Watch the paragliders set off, then soar around the skies nearby, check out the mountain bikers setting off on their downhill runs.
  • Best thing to do in Queenstown at a reasonable price! $63 for a gondola and 6 luge rides which we all thoroughly enjoyed. Also great views from the balcony. Could do with more signage in and around the building as lots of tourists milling around following each other and we got a little lost finding the luge entrance 😂
  • Skyline Queenstown is great - the luge at the top is very good fun for the kids - just check what's the minimum age. The bike racks are absolutely awesome just a shame that it is not possible to use the gondola during the peak season. The trails are still open but going up the mountain road is pretty tiring - hard to do more than 4-5 in a row.
  • Far the very basic reason to come: to watch the sunset over Queenstown. The views are beautiful. I went close to sunset time and enjoyed browsing through the gift shop, admiring the jellybean art, and trying the meat mince pie that was at a reduced price. It was delicious!
  • Beautiful view of Lake Wakatipu and snow capped mountains beyond. Hands down the steepest gondola I've been on (which aren't many to be fair). Great range of food, catering for a variety of tastes. Some hits (salads, meats, some fish), some misses (prawns and mussels). Dessert bar - great!
