Burger Restaurant
“To avoid the queue you can phone them with your order then simply go there to the window and collect your meal. Great big burgers, coeliac and dairy free requests are taken seriously. ”

General Entertainment
“Situated an easy five minute walk from central Queenstown, the Gondola carries visitors high above Queenstown to the Skyline complex. The best views in the region are found here, spread out in a spectacular panorama with breath taking views of Coronet Peak, The Remarkables mountain range and across Lake Wakatipu to Cecil and Walter Peak. But there's more to enjoy than just the views! Get your fix of fun with Skyline Luge, the global thrill ride for all ages. Jump in your specialised Luge cart and take on over 800m of banked corners, tunnels & dippers. Or treat yourself to a delicious buffet lunch or dinner at Stratosfare Restaurant & Bar. The stunning views are a perfect match with Stratosfare's menu of iconic New Zealand and international cuisine – from seafood to prime cuts and a wide choice of vegetarian dishes, there's something for everyone.”
