What You Can Expect

Queenstown Skyline Gondola and Luge

Skyline Gondola

The Skyline Gondola followed by five downhill luge rides offer visitors to Queenstown the ultimate combo. You’ll appreciate the rugged alpine scenery that each experience has to offer.

Make your way to the Skyline base, about a 10-minute walk from downtown Queenstown. You’re treated to panoramic mountain vistas from the enclosed gondola, which carries you up 1,476 feet (450 meters) — considered to be the Southern Hemisphere’s steepest cable car ride. 

At the top of Bob's Peak, board a two-seater chairlift that takes you high above the Skyline building. Then choose from two distinct Skyline Luge Queenstown options: the scenic track or the advanced track, or alternate between both. 

Part go-kart and part toboggan, the three-wheeled luge cart is steered on a leisurely ride around gentle bends on the scenic track, while the advanced track boasts a steeper gradient, higher speeds, banking corners, tunnels and more. Both provide the utmost safety features and allow you complete control.

Cruising downhill, you’ll take another chairlift to the start zone to complete all five rides before returning to Queenstown by Skyline Gondola.

What fun this is once you let go and let the speed build! As they say, once is NOT enough--five runs were more like it although I could have gone a couple times more. Plus the views from the mountain are out of this world. Take the ski lift up one more time after your last run and walk down to the gondola building at the top so you can get the best photos. Our whole group loved it.

Well organized and exactly as described. Although we experienced the luge in the rain, the operations were very accommodating and we definitely got the most out of our time.

This is by far the longest luge ride I’ve done. You just wanna keep going! Five passes for the ride and chairlift are plenty to fully enjoy it! Everywhere, from the return gondola ride to the Skyline base, the views are truly remarkable! So worth it!
