|About these ratings|
The Skyline Gondola is just as it sounds—a gondola ride through the sky. You end up at an observation deck on Bob's Peak. You'll also find a restaurant on Bob's Peak, in which you can nosh on a "Taste of New Zealand" buffet. And last, but certainly not least, you can pump up your adrenalin on a 2,624-feet downhill luge ride. (Don't worry there are brakes!)
One TripAdvisor user couldn't get over the Skyline Gondola's fun factor: "This was one of the [most fun] things we did in Queenstown! […] There are two tracks you can do, I'd recommend at least twice on each track as they are both really fun!"
The gondola is a short, five-minute walk from central Queenstown, and it's open daily from 9 a.m. until "late," according to its website. Gondola rides cost 25 NZD (about $21 USD).
