It takes about 11 seconds to reach the ground falling at about 85 kph. The ground rush is unbeatable. Participants wear a full body harness and flying suit (all provided). Unlike Bungy, there is not dangling upside down or bounding around - you simply fall ‘fast and smooth’ and then slow down to land just in the last few metres. « less

My teenage kids did this jump after building up the courage, they loved it, I thought it was a tad expensive at $225 + $90 for video and photos for 10 seconds of excitement, but they've got you there as where else can you do such a thing! If your brave enough don't hesitate.

After wanting to do this for a very long time, when I went up to the top of the tower to the observation decks, I thought perhaps it was a bit too high for me! However, I decided I had to have a go, as it is such a unique and amazing experience. The staff were great - very friendly... More

Organisation & safety from start to finish. Excellent staff that are a credit to what they do, which is adrenalin pumping madness. SkyJump is unsurpassed when it come to high level activities. I feel I had total value for money & can't wait 'till I'm back in Auckland to do my next jump. Thx to all for making my "Look... More

Highly recommended for the brave! Planned as the most exciting way to celebrate my 56th b'day, there was no way I was going to be able to back out of this amazing activity (although they would have let me, if I couldn't manage to "let go" - and offered the opportunity to take the ride in the next 12 months)....

On planning our holiday to NZ for my birthday I was looking at the sky tower restaurant when I saw the SKYWALK. I thought that looked fun and I could make some money for charity too so that's when I decided to book to do the walk on the last day of my holiday. I did it today with Matt... More

Short review: If you've been bungee jumping or cliff diving then I wouldn't recommend this. I got no adrenaline kick at all as I was hoping for. For people looking to be more adventurous and bungee seems like too much, then I would absolutely recommend this activity. The staff are professional and the experience is very controlled and very safe.... More

Hi The Farron, thank you for your review. We understand that SkyJump will not provide an adrenaline kick for everyone, but we have seen people with skydiving or bungy experience get a real thrill from SkyJump so the experience really is individual to each person that takes part. We have been working to make sure people know the difference between... More

Stunning views of Auckland on top of the Skytower. The jump looks more impressive than it is - it is not very scary but heaps of fun nonetheless! It's a lot more gentle than a bungee, so it's something everyody can do. And 'the fall' lasts longer too!

Whilst on the escalator ride to the bottom to the sky tower, your left thinking about the possibility of the feat you are about to undertake.... Am I really about to throw myself off a 192m tower.... Just for fun..... HELL YES. Whilst I will admit I may have suffered from a minor panic attack prior to launching myself off... More

Yeah it's expensive and there are people complaining that it isn't a bungy jump, but if they had actually taken 10 seconds to read what they were signing up for, it clearly states this is NOT A BUNGY. This is a controlled fall but it will definitely get that adrenaline flowing and the view is unparalleled. My hands are sweating... More
