  • 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 »

  • We went up the gondola to do the Luge with our toddler. We LOVED it! We bought tickets ahead of time and skipped the line at the entrance. Notes: - It can be difficult to find parking hear the entrance/gondola. We ended up parking in a public ramp a couple blocks away - The gondola has great views! - The Luge is very fun and requires a ride up the hill on a ski lift. The ski lift is pretty quick, so we held our toddler to get on. The lift might be difficult with a big family. You can walk back up the hill but it is steep. - We felt safe taking our toddler on the Luge. They have helmets of different sizes - we had to dig to find a toddler one! The parent controls the speed and turning. Our toddler rode down 5 times!
  • Came here with my family of 6. Gondola ride was spectacular with exceptional views from the top. Would highly recommend doing the luge ride up the top. Reasonable priced with friendly staff. Very happy with our experience
  • A 15 minute walk to one of the best attractions in Queenstown, the views from the gondola were awesome. From the viewing deck you can see all of Queenstown and the surrounding area. The buffet meal was great with an excellent choice of food. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Well worth the money
  • The best spot to see Queenstown from the top! Came here with my family and we really enjoyed the view and the luge! I think this is a must for everyone who comes to visit Queenstown.
  • Definitely worth the $$ going on the gondola! The view was exceptional. We went end of January but still a bit chilly, so don’t forget to bring a jacket if you’re planning on standing outside after sunset. Definitely plenty of room on the deck if you wanna bring a tripod and take long exposure shots. The gondola stopped taking people up after 9pm, but we had no problem getting down staying until 10pm.
