It was thrilling experience. We loved it. My 7 years old son enjoyed the most. 360 degrees spin was awesome. Jet boat departs every 30 mins. It’s around 30 mins ride. It’s around 10 km from queenstown city Centre.

Yes! You can easily do the skyline luge in the morning and keep the shotover jet for the afternoon! But pls keep in mind not to have heavy lunch in the afternoon! As it may cause nausea😊
