“WOW breath taking views”
Reviewed March 17, 2013

The views were absolutly breath taking. And we stayed till sunset and really got some butiful camera shots. Make sure that you go to the very top as we had to take a seperate elevator to get to the top. From the original floor we were on. Coffee shop and bar at the top added to a nice touch. We purchased an expresso and watched the sun go down.

“You have to do it”
Reviewed March 17, 2013

Usually avoid touristy destinations like this one but so pleased we went up - Auckland had turned on a pearler of day and every direction you looked in was blue and sparkling. The glass floor segments are a bit freaky at first but very cool - and you do get used to walking out on them - guess the only disappointment is that there's no open air access area - but apart from that, well worth an hour or so up top.

“Beautiful views”
Reviewed March 16, 2013

Lovely views from the top of the tower. We enjoyed the glass panels that you can walk on - they proudly announce that they are "38mm thick". Yes, less than 4cm thick. Sounds safer when you say '38' rather than ''less than 4".

It's worth paying the extra couple of dollars for the ascent to the smaller viewing platform about 9 floors higher - you'd think it would all look the same when you get that high, but it doesn't.

Sunset viewing was lovely.

“What a view!”
Reviewed March 16, 2013

The Sky Tower is the tallest manmade building around. We ate at the revolving buffet at the top, and, it was pretty good. People do a controlled "jump" off of the tower. Kind'a fun watching them do it and know you don't have to!
