Tour description provided by Viator

Imagine yourself steering a three-wheeled luge cart around bends, over bumps and through tunnels with the view of Queenstown and Lake Wakatipu below. Your day will be filled with scenic views and adventure as you take a gondola from Queenstown to the Skyline complex at the top of Bob’s Peak. From there, take up to five rides (because one isn’t enough) down one of two luge tracks – the advanced track or the scenic track.

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.
