Why You'll Love This

What's Included?

  • Return gondola ride
  • 2 luge rides
  • Equipment and safety briefing

After presenting your voucher to the operator at the gondola base, you'll receive your ticket to board the gondola for a scenic ride to the complex and access to the Luge tracks. Upon arrival at the top terminal, you'll need to exit the gondola and make your way upstairs and outside to the complimentary chairlift to access the top of the luge. At the top of the luge, you will need to self scan your ticket before fitting a safety helmet and then proceeding to the luge start zone where you will be given your very own luge cart and safety instruction from the luge team. During your luge experience, you have full control of your direction and speed so you can go as slow or as fast as you like!

There are two tracks to choose from; however the first ride on the luge must be down the scenic track with a gentle gradient and easy corners. Once at the bottom it's back on the chairlift to do it all again.Once you have successfully mastered the scenic track you can now head to the advanced track to experience the thrill of banked corners, steeper gradients and dips and hollows. You also have the choice to have another run on the scenic track. It's your choice! After your luge experience, you can re-board the gondola at the top of the terminal to enjoy the descent back down to the gondola base. Feel free to look around the complex, including the numerous viewing decks overlooking Queenstown and surrounding lake and mountains.
