Though not as adrenaline-packed as the Olympic sport, the Queenstown luge winds downhill with stunning 220-degree views of Lake Wakatipu and the Remarkables mountain range beyond. Ride the Skyline Gondola up to the top of Bob’s Peak where you’ll experience the Skyline Luge Queenstown on five rides — sure to satisfy any thrill-seeker. Choose the scenic track or descend a steeper gradient on the advanced track, or switch between the two specially designed routes.
  • Scenic gondola and five luge rides in Queenstown
  • Enjoy 220-degree views of Queenstown, Lake Wakatipu and surrounding mountain ranges
  • Choose from the advance luge track or the scenic luge track
  • Includes five luge rides!
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.

This tour was amazing!

The gondola ride allows for some beautiful views of Queenstown. Even though dusk was approaching, we were able to get some great photos from the patio at the top. It was my first experience on a luge and I was glad that I had five opportunities to practice. I really think there should be three tracks, not two. Track 1 should be for first timers and less experienced riders, track 2 should be for those ready for more challenges and track 3 should be for those who know how to ride. Riders should be reminded to not block the middle of the path so that others can pass safely.

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.

We enjoyed it so much the first time, we went back for round 2! Just as fun second time around

It's been a few years since I've been on the Gondola and luge, however it was as fun as I remember. There possibly needs to be something done regarding the queue's and parking at the bottom of the gondola, however we did travel during peak season. Staff were amazing and really helpful

Great way to spend an afternoon. Very safe. You need to plan about 20 minutes in line to board the Gondola. Maybe 5 minutes waiting each time for the Luge. Kids love....so do adults.

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.

A great ride for big kids at a good price!

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!

It was good but queues were so long that we only actually went down once!
