Whether you’re looking to boost your adrenaline, appreciate the scenery or both, this gondola and luge ride is a perfect option when in Queenstown.

From the gondola base, located within 10 minutes’ walk from downtown Queenstown, take the gondola to the main Skyline complex and surround yourself with 220- degree views of mountain vistas and the sparkling lake and city below. Once you reach the top, choose from two luge options – the advanced track or the scenic track.

The two luge tracks wind downhill and end beside the main Skyline building. From here, a two-seated complimentary gondola ride will take you back to the start zone for your next luge ride.

The advanced track boasts a steeper gradient, higher speeds, banking corners, tunnels and more. The scenic track is designed specifically to provide an exciting experience while allowing you to appreciate the scenery around you. Both provide the utmost safety features and allow you complete control. Switch between the advanced and scenic tracks, or stick to the one track the whole time. This tour allows five rides -- sure to satisfy any thrillseeker.

The tickets were printed online. But please go to store across from Ferburger before going to location. The line was massive, hours at min. To turn printed voucher into admission ticket. Once we walked down n back up, it was the best time ever! Billy goats on mtn going up, food was good, ride on lift was beyond stunning, and luge was so fun n fast!!!

Zooming around these courses overlooking the beautiful view of Lake Wakatipu is an unforgettable memory! The carts were easy to use and the staff was friendly and enthusiastic. The cost was very reasonable and included a gondola ride to a scenic viewpoint and multiple runs down the luge courses. Definitely include this adventure on your visit to Queenstown!

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.

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.

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!

Yes, you can actually go fast enough to get hurt doing this, so it is in fact very entertaining lol What fun would it be if there was zero danger involved? That being said, don't go driving dangerously just because you can, but enjoy yourself, drive your lines like you'd drive a real car on an actual race track and you can get some serious speed out of these things. Road it 8 times in one day myself, loved every single ride! And of course the views from the lift are spectacular and make for great photos, don't want to miss those my friends!

This was too much fun. If they'd had an unlimited ride option, we could have done the luge all day! The scenic track was quite a bit longer and allowed more time to actual take in the views of the lake below but the fast track a blast! There were a few little drop hills and sharp, banked turns that made it really fun when you were speeding down the track. The views of the lake behind you never failed to impress, every time you rode the chairlift back to the top. Super fun experience that pretty much anyone could do -- young or old!

If just staying inside the town, there's no better option than go for the gondola and luge. You can try 5 times of the Luge, which is a highlight. Suitable activity for all age group. We definitely enjoyed it.
