“Great views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2012

We went up the sky tower just after it opened, the glass elevator ride up was interesting.
As we were very early and it was raining so the view was obscured we decided to take a coffee break and hope that the weather cleared up.

The coffee bar was very busy as most other people had the same idea, however they took our order, told us that it would be about 20 minutes and then we were able to find a table to look over the city whilst we waited, very relaxing.

Once our break was over we enjoyed looking out at Auckland from the observation level.

“If you have not been to Las Vegas go otherwise skip it”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2012

Mini Las Vegas. Not as good as the real thing. Certainly not for international visitors.
