  • We took the 5 trip luge ride but only did 3 rides since we were losing time on the long queues and the Gondola ride was adventurous...  more »
  • It gets really popular here in summer but it was definitely worth the wait to go up the gondolas to the top of Bob’s Peak and take in the spectacular view of Queenstown. Lots of photo opps. But it’s h...  more »
  • Had the best time. Once is definitely not enough just like the advertising saids. I beat my son on the track and that made for an even better experience. Well worth the effort  more »

  • Real nice place here. We had such a great time as a family. They've got a restaurant and they've got a cafe also. If you fancy a simple fish and ships or if you want a fancy meal it's all there. I would send you right to the restaurant because their deserts are just mad and food is really nice. Not to forget, the luge is very well built and and lots of fun for the kids. Only two tracks, bloggers and advanced. There is also an area were you can have a walk up the luge, I must warn you, it's a very steep hill so come prepared, plenty of water if you are going in the summer time.
  • The last time I visited was close to two decades ago, and the changes here aren't too many except for the appearance mostly including the dining area and gift shop. But nevertheless, it's a great place to visit and enjoy for anyone of any age, and it seems quite new to have helicopter rides taking off from here. Do get the combo gondola and luge ticket (at least 3 luge rides as your first is always going to be a learner's ride on the slow track).
  • Nice viewpoint of Queenstown and friendly staff. Even if you didn’t get a prepaid ticket, the line does really quick anyhow! Except restaurants, there’s no much places you can walk around. MTB tracks look great though would have been great if we took our bike up there!
  • The buffet restaurant on the top of gondola base is great. Good value for money if you purchase the gondola & buffet combo ticket. Lunch is cheaper & give enough time to 15:00 to enjoy your relax & delicious meal. As long as people don't compare the buffet to fine dinning restaurant.
  • Amazing view and super friendly staff! This is what you actually pay for. We had the dinner for two with wine, since the window seats were taken. Book early! Food is ok, huge variety but average quality. The beef is really great though, so be sure you try it.

Where to stay in Queenstown

To enjoy views of Lake Wakatipu in a luxury setting, try one of the many boutique and long-established hotels of the downtown area. As a resort town, Queenstown also offers a range of more modest accommodations, ideal for adventurers, backpackers, and those eager to spend more time outside than in. These come in the form of hostels, rental apartments, campsites, and suburban motels. A good local bus service provides connections between the downtown and suburban areas, and out to the surrounding attractions, and many accommodations offer package tours.
