Attraction details
Owner description: 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.

“Such an incredible experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2014 via mobile

Such an amazing experience! The beautiful angel that helped me with the actual jump was so sweet! She knows her job! And so was the guy on the ground. Especially discovering that his parents had lived in my home country before! Yaaay

“WOW!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2014

What an amazing way to spend an afternoon in Auckland. It was great - pretty scary to start with but our fantastic leader and a very funny group of guys made it an amazing day. You really should try it and push yourself to your limits :0

“Terrible service took the gloss off our experience”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2014 via mobile

Absolutely terrible customer service. We had two sisters doing a jump and due to their equipment issue one child had to re-do it which made it completely unfair. They refused to let both jump again. Total inconvenience to is and completely took the glow off our experience. Not cool and we are unimpressed.

Hi JBalls 79, thanks for your review. Firstly, I apologise that you felt that you received terrible service from our team. Rarely, we have technical issues with camera equipment, and we have made sure that in our disclaimer we make customers aware that this can happen. I have spoken to the team involved this weekend, and they offered your daughter a complimentary SkyJump to re-record her video, which I am told she very much enjoyed. I am happy that this goes beyond what we are required to do, and that every effort was made by our staff to ensure your daughter had the chance to record another video. If you would like to contact me to discuss further, please email amy@skyjump.co.nz.
