Once at the top, you can choose from several luge rides, designed to provide an exciting experience with unbeatable views of the region's pristine natural scenery.

  • The Gondola ride was OK. However, you get some great views as you go up! Once you reach the top you actually have to climb down a little to get to the Luge ride. I did the Luge ride three times! You have to do the blue lane once and then can choose b/w the blue and the red. The red lane is more fun with some amazing drops, steep curves and a slightly longer route!
  • Massively overpriced in all areas. Amazing view. However can get similar views elsewhere. Staff at ticket box were great. The staff at the top and bottom getting on/off the gondola don't greet you. too busy talking amongst themselves. The ride itself is extremely clunky, not smooth at all. and its way too quick to even enjoy the view on the way up and down. if you're a solo traveller you'll get put in with others. Compared to Christchurch and other places in the world, extremely disappointed for the price.
  • Must see tourist attraction in Queenstown - Head up the chairlift before sunset and watch over Queenstown as it transitions from day to night. The bar and restaurants are Ok, but you get better food in Queenstown. It is well worth the expense to go on the toboggans - they are a lot of fun.
  • I visited Skyline both Rotorua and Queenstown countless times. The service just got worse and worse and to the worst. I didn't want photos taken, for many years, they actually respected this decision as any reasonable person should. However, they chose to violate my right today. They took a photo of the back of my head, and actually had the guts to show it to me. When I said that's not nice, I just didn't want the photo taken. The rude answer was told by several staff, who surrounded me at the time saying - "It's our job" "Well. You don't need to buy it.". I mean, is it really relevant whether I want to purchase the photo or not? I just didn't want my photo taken. And, how come this company put their staff in such awkward situation? so their policy is - ignore customers refuse and just snap a photo as fast as you can? I just find it hard to believe. Besides, the dude in front of me waved his hand, and the "photographer" left him alone. What was the different treatments about? Will never go up there again. Just had enough.
  • Loved it. Great view, and the luges are awesome. Did it two days in a row. You really want to avoid the busier times, as elder tourists will clog up the tracks. Definitely would recommend though, one of the highlights of Queenstown
