SkyJump; NZ's Highest Jump - 192m 630ft. Jump start your Kiwi Adventure by leaping from Auckland's SkyTower. 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.

The most exciting, wonderful and scary thing we've ever done. Would do it again in a heartbeat. The skywalk is very different from the jump, we recommend both (preferably do the walk first to get used to it).

Did the skywalk yesterday and it was awesome. The vieuws were amazing altough we had some slight rain. The guide challenged us to do some tricks that made my knees quite wobbly. I certainly reccomend this short adventure and just go for it even when it rains . Up there it will be allright. And afterwards you can enjoy a... More

While it's a bit expensive at $145 per person, it was so freaking awesome! Went up with my cousins and had a blast!! Leighton, our guide, was awesome and the facts he shared about Auckland were informative as well. Highly recommend!! Did not do the jump but would definitely walk around again!!

Wow what a way to get over your fear of heights. I hate heights but done the skywalk stepping out onto the platform with just the ropes holding you.walked around the edge doing the things the guide said well most of them. The view was fantastic and the thrill of just that rope holding you there wow

Did the sky jump off the tower, it is incredible, and by no means as scary as you think! Amazing views and exhilarating experience. Only negative was not being allowed to use my own camera (go pro) and having to pay for the video. You get free tickets back up to the observation deck afterwards though!

If you are a little worried about making the huge jump, my advice is to book BOTH the jump and walk. This way, you walk atop the tower for about 45 minutes and get used to the height. That way, after they change harnesses and you jump, it is MUCH easier--perhaps even anticlimactic. I found the jump was tremendously easy... More

As a 'silver surfer' and to show my daughters I dared do it, off we went to the Sky Tower on our first morning in NZ. What a great buzz, but to be fair I've been more frightened up a ladder, painting the guttering !

This was a thrill that I wasn't expecting. At first I thought it would be a bit tame. Loved it. So glad I took the opportunity to do it. I was even encouraged to use the gopro to get some good footage before the jump. 192m in 11 seconds 85km/h... awesome. Makes me smile every time I watch it back.

Relax, it is only a bit of a gone with the wind feeling before the walk. After walking that high and bung jumping to safety in the middle of a view you will feel alive as never. Adrenaline in safe hands, you will not regret.
