Owner description: Take a scenic Gondola ride to enjoy Queenstown's most spectacular views. At the top of Bob's Peak there's more to enjoy! For an adrenalin rush catch the chairlift to ride our unique Luge, a non-motorised cart for a 800m blast of downhill fun. Then relax and dine in our taste of New Zealand buffet restaurant open for lunch or dinner, or sample lighter fare in the market kitchen. In the evening our Stargazing astronomy tours and the Kiwi Haka performances entertain and inspire. Come up for a visit to Skyline Queenstown today!

“Stunning sunset views”
Reviewed 22 November 2013 via mobile

If you only manage to make it up to the gondola once, go when the sun is setting. It's so beautiful up there, but the sunset takes it to a whole other level.

“a ride to the top of Queenstown”
Reviewed 20 November 2013

as a group we all headed up - all 100 of us to a Vintage Rugby carnival opening ceremony. The view is astounding, the service was brilliant. We were served quality, delicious and excellently presented canapés and finger food. The beer and wine flowed and a wonderful opportunity to mix and meet old friends and new.

This is a must do every time you are in Queenstown.

We had a private area with a balcony which offered an unhindered view to the east over Queenstown and to the Remarkables in the near distance. This is an outstanding adventure and is capable of catering for anyone of any age.

“You must luge!”
Reviewed 19 November 2013

Amazing view once you get to the top of the gondola and the luge is an absolute blast, you have to give it a go, I wish we had gone up and had another try but ran out of time. Wasn't able to try to restaurant as it was booked out. Make sure to check out ZIptrek Ecotours when you are up there as well.

“Number 1 must do ”
Reviewed 19 November 2013 via mobile

You will love the views and the luge is so much fun you can have your child between your legs and our 2.5year old loved it! Great sized ice creams. We had a brilliant time up here!

“Nothing spectacular”
Reviewed 19 November 2013

For me it was another Gondola ride up. At the top, you'll see Queentown city and surrounding area. There is a gift shop at the top. The cafe did not have much food when I was there - just some takeaway sandwiches and muffins. There is an expensive restaurant where you need to do prior booking. Food at this restaurant was not outstanding - not bad but nothing to shout about. We didn't do the luge.
