Great trip on a clear day. Great cafe on site. Well worth the trip up and even better skip the ride and walk down

Loved the Gondola ride, it was an overcast day but the gondola was still fun. The staff at the cafe were very uninspired and quite unfriendly which soured the day a little. Will try again on our next visit for better views

Yes the views looking over Christchurch, crossing the patchwork fields of the Canterbury Plains, to the jagged Southern Alps mountains tall and grand in the distance, are totally awesome!
AND then keep looking around you and there's the sweep of Lyttelton Harbour and beyond and it's all 360' totally awesome!

The gondola takes you up to the top of the Port Hills which is actually the rim of extinct volcano which enables you have complete surround views of all that there is to see!

I thoroughly enjoyed the geology history lesson on THE TIME TUNNEL animation ride. This is inclusive of the ticket to ride the gondola.

Along with the views is the pleasant Red Rock Café. The lunch menu was good as was the brew - a good coffee.

All in all - a place to spend a relaxing time enjoying the views and enjoying the whole of the experience of soaring above Christchurch.
I'll be back!

The ride on the gondola was spectacular and the views simply amazing. A must do. The poor little “ride” on the history of NZ was interesting but a queue had formed - the ride had broken down - the ride was “sad” - very hick. The shop is brill. Visitors - don’t miss the gondola ride. We did not try the cafe so cannot comment.

I am a local and did not expect this view to be so beautiful up here. Definately something to experience on a clear day. I consider the cost worth the experience.
