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. SkyWalk; Life on the Edge! Inch along a narrow walkway around the Sky Tower, high above Auckland. No handrail, nothing but thin air and the city 192 metres below, SkyWalk is an exhilarating challenge you'll never forget. Our guides point out attractions, tell you stories and challenge you to daredevil tricks. For a big New Zealand adventure, 360° panoramic views of Auckland and extraordinary memories, SkyWalk the ledge. « less

Jumping off the Sky Tower was a blast! Felt safe from start to finish, had a great time, and only wanted it to be longer.

Hi Brittany_11_10, thanks for your review. We recommend the SkyJump in Las Vegas next for a slightly longer ride; it's from the 108th floor! More

you have to do the jump. It's a must if you are in auckland. We actually did it twice in one day, that's how good it was. Can't describe the feeling

I was told by a friend about the walk and jump. Excited to do it, she backed out, I jumped twice! I am 67 years young and was exhilarated. James was especially helpful in suiting me up as were the two girls up top. Thanks for making a good ending to my visit to NZ!

I did the Sky Jump a few weeks ago and LOVED it. I wouldn't consider myself a total adrenaline junkie but when I saw this was in Auckland I knew I would regret not doing it. I have to say, everyone on the staff was incredibly kind and helpful. That really eased my mind as I started to get nervous... More

Thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Felt very safe and not scary at all. Pogo was such a great instructor/guide - put everyone at ease and a great sense of humour. The only thing I was reluctant to do was to look down with toes on the edge - vertigo. Thinking about doing the jump but....not sure, could be to scary.

So we had 3 days in Auckland and wanted to do this.. The first and second days were too windy and the sky walk was closed. On our last chance it was open so we paid, suited up and off we went. We got outside it was seriously windy, I was bricking it! About 1/3 of the way round our... More

I was absolutely petrified. The walk was first and once I got up and actually saw the size of the platform and got into the wind I was almost petrified to the spot. Our guide Kate was fantastic. She made me feel that each step I took was fine and I even built up courage to lean out!! The safety... More

Great staff, with complete attention to safety and procedures, meant that even though I was making an irrational leap off a tall building, I was reassured it was the most totally sensible thing to do.
