    Amazzzzzing

    Absolutely loved this. Long drive up a hectic gravel road which I enjoyed too but will be scary for some. I would rather do this than the luge.

    Great experience

    Over the years we have done most activities in & around Queenstown. This was a bit different & was a great new experience. Booked it online as we did not see it advertised in queenstown at all. 2 hours of exhilaration. Would highly recommend trying this if you are looking for speed . We got a deal for $50 pp for the 2 hours which made it even better. You also get a bonus of the great views from Cardrona :)
