auckland sky tower
Whether you’re base jumping with SkyJump, New Zealand’s highest jump, or taking a guided walk around the outer ledge of the Sky Tower on a thin metal walkway with no handrail, both these experiences are sure to push you to your limit. The Auckland Sky Tower delivers 6000 visitors a year across two exhilarating and safe experiences.
When it comes time to SkyJump, highly trained jump masters will rope jumpers up and talk them safely up to the edge, until suddenly they find themselves leaning out over the streets of Auckland far below. After that point there’s nothing to do but let go and fly!
SkyJump can be described as base jumping while attached to a wire. It’s just like being a movie stuntman, or a super hero. Jumpers fall very fast (approx. 85kph) for around 11 seconds, and then come to a smooth landing in the SKYCITY plaza below.
