Everything Travel Group Review

What more can I say the Skyline Luge is one of the great Kiwi inventions. There are two 800m tracks (slow, fast) which are both well designed and allow you to race your friends or just cruise at your own pace. One thing I noticed was the wide range of people on this from very small children to grandparents and they all had huge smiles on their faces - everyone likes this product. Its not expensive and a great activity to do with friends and family. They say in their marketing "Once is never enough" it's actually such a true statement, I could have stayed up their all afternoon if I had more time!

Latest Questions about Skyline Queenstown (Queenstown)

Hello, I am visiting in January 2018 - am planning to do the gondola, dinner, haka show and the luges but see there is no package for that to include the luges. Can it be arranged or do I have to buy the luges separately?

Hi, may I know if skyline restaurant serve halal food. Thank you.

Comments

Heya, Great question. All of the meat is halal with the exception of the venison. The chicken is halal certified which means it is halal but comes from a premises which also has chickens which are not halal. It will all be clearly labelled so you can see which is halal, most of it is.

Hi can we take multiple times of gondola ride a day? We're planning to do Luge in the afternoon and come up again for dinner and star gazing tour at night as the dinner starts pretty late in October.

Comments

Heya, Awesome the luge is so fun and the dinner is delicious it will be a great day. You can absolutely ride the gondola as many times as you like but you will need to pay each time as a ticket only covers you for one return trip. You can purchase a gondola and luge package, and then a gondola and dinner/stargazing package separately.

Hi,why there is no have gandola ride+dinner+luge ride package?

Comments

Heya, The luge closes when it gets dark, in winter this means that the luge closes quite early and so its difficult to have a dinner and luge package. As it gets lighter though this can certainly be arranged if you send us a message. - Kind regards, Alicia

Hiya how long does gondola take to get from top to bottom thanks?

Comments

The Queenstown gondola takes about 5 minutes to get from bottom to top and the same amount of time to get down again. There can be queues to get up on the gondola, especially before dinner so we always advise arriving at the Skyline terminal at least 30 minutes prior to your dinner reservation if you are in fact going up for dinner.

Hi Just wondering if have bought a gondala package with luge rides.. we are also now thinking to book a zip line tour.. would th ticket I have be enough to get us to the zipline tour? then obviously pay for the zipline tour..?when we finish the zipline can we then do the luge rides. is that laot to do in one day?

Comments

Hi, I have the same question, did you receieve and answer or are you able to share how it worked out? Thanks!

Comment by: Amy on 30th Oct 17 at 14:05

Hey guys, So purchasing the gondola and luge lets you go up the gondola once and back down. If you would like to do the Ziptrek as well you can gondola ride up, luge then ziptrek down. You wont then be able to go back up! Hope this helps!

Comment by: Alicia - Everything Queenstown on 30th Oct 17 at 14:21

Hi Alicia, Thank you for the quick response. My question is, if I buy a gondola and luge combo, once I have taken the gondola up, am I free to use the zipwire (I have already purchased the ticket) then luge afterwards and then use my downward gondola? Or are there restrictions on the timings/ sequencing when buying the tickets this way? Thanks :) Amy

Comment by: Amy on 30th Oct 17 at 16:53

Heya, You cannot use the luge afterwards as the Ziptrek zipwire takes you to the bottom. If you then wanted to go up on the gondola again to get back up to do the luge you would have to pay for the gondola again. The way to do it would be get the gondola up, do the luge and then zipline down to the bottom of the mountain. :)

Hi, just wonder if there is a track for people to walk up to the Skyline complex, instead of taking the gondola. Cheers.

Comments

Yes there is a walking track up to the top of the Skyline complex in Queenstown. There is no cost to walk up and it takes about 45 minutes or so depending on your fitness. You are not permitted to ride the gondola back down however unless you purchase a ticket at the top.

Hi Tracy, the Skyline gondola is about 600m from the town centre so it is walking distance. Just be aware the walk is uphill from town.

Hi, does one have to pay for parking at the bottom of the gondola? We want to spend the day around the skyline doing the activities up there but am not sure about whether we need to pay for parking at the bottom of the gondola.

Comments

You can park for free at the bottom of the Skyline gondola in Queenstown but its often hard to find a park. I'd suggest just walking from your hotel as most accommodation is only a short walk away. Alternatively, if you do want to drive, you can pay for parking at the secure park on Mann street which is just a 5 minute walk from the gondola.

Hi. I'm interested in gondola, dinner and hakashow package. But I'm wondering if I book those one at 6pm, what time do I have to move to see the Hakashow and where should I go?

Comments

Hi Sunshine, 

The Skyline Kiwi Haka performance is held 45 minutes before each of the dinner sittings. The show goes for 30 minutes and only a few minutes walk from the performance area to where you will be seated for dinner. 

If you were to book for 6pm, you would watch the Haka performance first and then have dinner after, this is quite a popular package and there will be quite a few other people doing the same experience.

I was wondering what the price for the gondola ride dinner and luge ride would be ?

Comments

Hi Dave. It is not possible to pre book the luge if you book and pay for the Queenstown Skyline dinner and gondola ride. The cost for the buffet dinner and gondola ride is $82 for adults and $40 for kids. If you wish to do the luge ride as well then you can pay for luge tickets once you get to the top of the gondola ride. These cost $5 each or cheaper if you pay for multiple rides.

Hello
I am visiting Queenstown during the winter festival from the 19th till 25th of June, how early to I need to make a reservation for Gondula and dinner, to make sure I don't miss out. Not sure what night it will be

Comments

Hi Cara. The Skyline restaurant in Queenstown does often book up several weeks in advance during the busy winter festival period so I would recommend booking for a specific date sooner rather than later. If you decide you want to change the date you can just contact us and we can move it to a date that suits you that has availability.

this many be a silly question but, if you buy 2 luge rides do you have to take the gondola up again for the second? so essentially you ride the gondola up twice and never down because the luge is at the bottom?

Comments

Hi Laurel. Not a silly question at all. After you take the Skyline gondola ride to the top in Queenstown you then take a small chair lift further up the mountain to the top of the luge track and you ride the luge back down to the bottom of the chair lift but not to the bottom of the gondola. So you only come back down to the bottom when you ride the gondola down at the end of your stay at Skyline.

Hi Helen. There is no combo unfortunately that includes the Queenstown Skyline gondola, dinner and luge however you can book the dinner & gondola via our website and then you can purchase luge tickets once you get to the top. There are special deals for buying multiple luge rides. 1 luge costs $11, 3 cost $27 and 5 costs $38.

Do I need to make a reservation ?
Also what sort of deal would I be looking at if there were four people for dinner, gondola, luge and even possible haka show?
This would also be for a birthday!

Thank you,

Comments

Hi Krystal.
Yes you will need to make a reservation as at times the Skyline dinner can be booked out.
The best way to do this package is to buy the Gondola, Dinner & Haka which is $110 per Adult and $54 per Child, then purchase your Luge rides when you arrive. The Luge does not need to be booked as it has huge capacity.

Prices for the Luge once you are already at the top of the Gondola are: Ad/Ch 1 ride $10, 2 rides $19, 3 rides $26 and 5 rides $37  To make your booking simple follow this link http://www.everythingnewzealand.com/skyline-queenstown-queenstown-43/

Hi, I want to book 2 adults for dinner but will be doing zip trek beforehand, which will take us back to the bottom, can we take the gondola more than once without paying again?

Comments

Hi Dan, if you are doing the 4 line Ziptrek then it doesn't go to the bottom of the hill and at the end of it everyone actually walks back up to the top of the gondola via the track as it is closer to the top than the bottom. The 6 line Ziptrek again doesn't go right to the bottom either but is further down than the 4 line. If you are doing the 6 line I would suggest walking back up the track to the top again otherwise unfortunately if you walk out to the bottom of the hill and take the Gondola back up again you do need to pay for another ticket.

I woul like to book the gondola, 5 luge rides but also time it around the 5.15 Haka Show - we can't find any combos to fit this. Thanks Joanne

Comments

Hi Joanne. You can just book the 5.15am Skyline Gondola and Haka show and then add pay for the luge rides when you get to the top of the gondola. You can head up anytime before your Kiwi Haka show. I'd suggest taking the gondola up by about 3pm so you have ample time to do your luge rides before hand.

Hi, is it safe for my 2 yr old son to ride the luge with me? I'm just worried about the safety of this as we haven't done one before. Will there be straps and will there be tracks for beginners and I guess 'experienced' luge drivers? thanks!

Comments

Hi Joe, the basic requirements for your child to be able to ride with you on the luge is that they fit sitting in front of you, fit a helmet, and are able to hold on. If this is possible and you feel comforable riding with them then you are allowed down the scenic track (beginners track).

Hi Jenifer. There is no package that includes the Skyline Queenstown gondola ride, luge, buffet dinner and Zipline (Ziptrek). However you can book the Skyline gondola & dinner via the Skyline Queenstown page on our website and the Ziptrek separately via our site. You can then just pay for the luge once you arrive at the top of the gondola. Queenstown is extremely busy over Easter so I recommend booking asap

Hi Shannon, the minimum age for the luge at the top of the Gondola in Queenstown is 6 years and they must be at least 110cm tall. Your 3 year old can go down the luge track if they sit on your lap while you go down the scenic track. There is no extra cost for them to go with you.
