“It's All Abut The View”
Review of Ride Skyline

Ride Skyline
Reviewed 6 April 2018

Amazing views of Queenstown upon our arrival on March 18, 2018, Great views of The Remarkables Mountain Range, and Lake Wakatipu from the top of Bob's Peak. It's a hike up Beacon Street just to get to the base of the peak where the entrance is to the gondolas. The top of the peak has a variety of extreme sports that you can do, a buffet restaurant, cafe, bar and a gift shop for all the typical touristy items. The interior of building could use some updating and repairs, and the observation deck was packed with tourists. However, it's all about the view. Go for the view, the ride up and down the mountain, and nothing more. You'll have a pleasant outing.

It's a fun ride up the side of a high hill and you get to see Queenstown from very high up. My partner wanted to do it and then found the height as we went up the hill a bit trippy so she faced the hill which solved the problem. When you arrive you can then jump off the top strapped to a man wearing a paraglider, cycle down the hill if you brought your bike or jump off tied to a large elastic band or get a coffee.

The ride up to the top of the attraction was wonderful. The view was 360 degrees with maps showing you at each station what you were seeing. There was a restaurant available and of course a great shop. You could return in the gondola or use a zip line to go down. A must experience
