Queenstown is set to get a tourist attraction that may impress everyone but those with a fear of heights.
Tourism company Skyline Queenstown, most famous for its luge, has applied for a consent to build the country’s first suspended viewing cube at the top of Bob’s Peak on Ben Lomond.
The glass platform, a meter wide and long, will hang out from the mountainside at a height of about 450 metres above the ground, looking out towards the Remarkables. It will let viewers look straight down to Queenstown below.
Skyline hopes to have the platform constructed by the end of the year if the application is accepted.
