One of the BEST things to kill a few hours. And hilariously funny! Yes, the gondola is one of the highest, steepest I have ever been on BUT it’s worth it for the view and the only way to get to the Luge... and if...More

My husband and I went up in the gondola had a look at the lake and came back down. Was a pretty ordinary experience for $80.

This isn’t a cheap activity but if you want great views of Queenstown and have some fun doing it, then this is a good option. You take the gondola to the top of the mountain and if you have luge tickets, you take another ski...More

We spontaneously decided to do this on a Sunday so parking was difficult. We ended up having to park in town and walk up. Line for gondola went pretty quick. There is the annoying photographer trying to take a photo of us in the gondola...More

After checking the weather forecast we planned to ride the gindola, have a walk, see the views, and come down. All went to plan, superb views giving you a better idea of the vastness of the lake, watching all sorts on the Luge, worthwhile trip.

The operators should be embarrassed by their archaic ticketing system. We bought online to save queuing, but when we arrived we were told we had to wait in the same queue as people who had yet to purchase a ticket. What a waste of time....More

Magnificent views on the way up and at the top. The luge was a hit with the whole family. The lines weren’t too long and the staff were friendly and helpful. An expensive day, but it was an experience we will remember forever.

Such a great day with our kids 6,9,11. The little got ended up on a lap but the staff gave us extra rides to compensate. Great day- some queues at first but then super quick. Really accessible and fun for all. A 7 year old...More

Hi, we went up on a sunny day around mid morning, the views are spectacular. I do believe they do a twilight ride? and providing it's a clear night the stars should be amazing.

You do pickup the tickets at the Base of the Gondola with your Voucher. They open up at 9:00 AM. Take the upgrade to the Luge - its a blast for all ages. We are 68 and 69 years old, not in the best of health either, there we... More
