Queenstown Skyline Gondola and Luge
From US$ 42.10
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.
What to Expect
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.

Great for all the family

You start in a gondola to go up the mountain. You then catch a chair lift up to the Luge track where you have a lesson on how to operate the luge. The Red track is definitely more fun than the Blue one. The views...More
