The cafe and gift shop are just ok so feel free to skip those. The real reason you are here are the views and they don't disappoint. However, the best part is the stairs down to the grass and stone covered top. It's so silent...More

A great day out, enjoyed riding the gondola to the top, but once we went outside to the observation deck it was freezing, the 360d view over the harbour, snow cover mountains in the distance were beautiful. Once inside we went to cafe we ordered...More

A fun ride on a little train tram vehicle where the views are beautiful and a fun place to explore and take the older family members 🚠

The guide to seat us on short ride was very very informative and we had a good chat about Christchurch earthquakes. The time tunnel is well worth going through and very well done. Thankyou!

One of Christchurch's must do's. Stunning views at the top and there is a restaurant. Coffee not bad. Windy days can be scary as the gondolas stop and you can be left dangling.

A great place for new people and tourists in Christchurch. Especially on a good day. The views are panoramic. Have lunch or coffee at the top. Also purchase souvenirs. The time tunnel is a very good history lesson.

Have not been to the gondola since well before the earthquakes and it didn't disappoint. My grandchildren just loved it and the 7 minute time tunnel experience once up there was equally enthralling

Choose a clear day, and take in the 360 degree views from the top of the gondola. For a first time visitor to the region, a great way to see the layout of the area. Great cafe at the top also!

The area is very pictures, my teen age kids where a little bored, while my older sister and her friends loved the experience, important to consider who is with you when you go.
