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 a great time my family had racing on the luge, I booked 5 rides each I should have booked 10, great views from the gondola and racetrack, Very organised, We went early to beat the tour buses that were going up for the lunch time meals which worked out well , Its a must do if the weather allows it

Yes, you can actually go fast enough to get hurt doing this, so it is in fact very entertaining lol What fun would it be if there was zero danger involved? That being said, don't go driving dangerously just because you can, but enjoy yourself, drive your lines like you'd drive a real car on an actual race track and you can get some serious speed out of these things. Road it 8 times in one day myself, loved every single ride! And of course the views from the lift are spectacular and make for great photos, don't want to miss those my friends!

This was too much fun. If they'd had an unlimited ride option, we could have done the luge all day! The scenic track was quite a bit longer and allowed more time to actual take in the views of the lake below but the fast track a blast! There were a few little drop hills and sharp, banked turns that made it really fun when you were speeding down the track. The views of the lake behind you never failed to impress, every time you rode the chairlift back to the top. Super fun experience that pretty much anyone could do -- young or old!
