“Do the SkyWalk!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2013

Did the Skywalk! Breathtaking in every meaning of the word. The buffet foodin the restaurant bit overpriced but I guess they are charging you for the view. Or maybe I didn't have much appetite after the Skywalk!

“Living on the edge!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013

We decided to do the walk around the edge of the tower - outside. A little pricey but you finish feeling satisfied with your accomplishment. Once your legs shop shaking from fear you will really start to enjoy yourself (trust me you will!) and be brave when you attempt the various little 'challenges' the guide asks you to do (like sticking your toes over the edge or walking backwards looking up.

“A great view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2013

We expected to queue for a long time to get up to the top of the tower but we only waited a few minutes. The view is stunning but don't look down in the lift.

“A must-see in Auckland”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2013

This is a must-see in Auckland. The views from here are amazing! we had dinner in the Orbit restaurant so got discount parking and of course the view included. The food was nice but not spectacular: what was spectacular was the experience!
