SkyJump Reviews, Trip Advisor

"The first step is a killer but once you jump it is pure adrenaline fun. The closest you will get to BASE jumping without getting arrested. A must do for the thrill seeker!!!!"SkyJump Testimonial from Raven3peaks, Anaheim, CA
"I had no intention of doing this since I had already booked a bungee jump off of Auckland Bridge. However, a Grab One deal came up right before my trip departure, and it was a half-price deal. So I went for this as well. I’m glad I did it because it’s a completely different experience than bungee jumping. I have to laugh at what I call the “adrenaline junkie snobs” that imply the SkyJump does not carry the same ‘badge of honour’ as bungee jumping; that it’s not as ‘intense’; or it is not as ‘risky.’ This was not my experience. I would say the SkyJump was just as thrilling as my bungee jump, if not, more thrilling. With the SkyJump, it was a lot more intense standing at the edge of an urban tower looking down at concrete. And it was spectacular enjoying the city view during the descent.  And I am thankful to the SkyJump Operators for letting me jump a second time right away for no extra charge. More perks of the SkyJump:
  • At the landing pad/target, you can look up and watch as your loved one/friend/family member jumps. This is a great opportunity to take pictures from below.
  • Another perk is that your SkyJump includes admission to go up the tower again to enjoy the observation decks. So what we did is jump in the morning, then came back after dinner to watch the sunset from the tower.
  • You can jump forwards or backwards.
Word of warning…I suggest you let the operators know up front so that they can slow you down just before landing. They did this for my wife since she had knee surgery a couple of years ago, I’m glad she did! So try to keep good form for the landing (knees slightly bent), your knees will thank you."SkyJump Testimonial from Product of Canada
"This was a highlight of my trip to New Zealand... I knew I had to do something somewhat thrill-seeker-like while I was there and this fitted the picture perfectly."SkyWalk Testimonial from CL0SeY, Newcastle, Australia
"We did the SkyWalk first (also recommend if weather is good) and enjoyed the views while getting our courage up... we then closed the deal with the jump. This is a very unique experience, only a couple other places in the world like it, and well worth the money. A 13 year old did it right before me and loved it, so anyone can do it! Make sure you pay for the video, fun to show to friends."SkyWalk Testimonial from WorldAdventurer_7 , Atlanta, Georgia
"One of the main reasons I wanted to stay in Auckland was to do this jump. When I got to the top, the staff were very professional and encouraging. They gave me excellent advice: don't just stand at the edge and wait, jump quickly. I took their advice, and was glad I did, because after five seconds I probably would have backed off and not returned. The moment of the jump was unforgettable. To stand on a ledge 635 feet above the sidewalk, look down, and jump off? That's insane! But I did it, and felt elated going down."SkyJump Testimonial from SleeperAwakened, Las Cruces, New Mexico

SkyWalk Reviews, Trip Advisor

"Excellent value. I did this as part of the Look and Leap package. I found this part to be great value for money! The guide (I think his name was Dylan - Canadian guy) was excellent. He pointed out lots of landmarks ad gave us some historical information. In fact, I only had a short stay and he pointed out some things which I then went and looked at so it was a great help! He was very patient with the group, and when we first went out, he got us all to try a few things, but did not push some of those in the group who had a bit of fear in them. The views were great, and we were out there a bit longer than we were told we would be. The guide took some photos and video of everyone which could be purchased at the end. I recommend this as a must do in Auckland if you have no fear of heights - or even if you need something to help you conquer the fear as the safety checks are extremely well done."Skyjump Testimonial from Purplelion80
"I visited the Sky Tower intending to take the Sky Walk but not really appreciating what was involved until I got there. I had not fully read a description of the experience but soon found out what was involved! On arrival at the reception, I found that my fellow walkers were to be a gentleman celebrating his 90th Birthday (I kid you not) accompanied by his daughter. Well, I couldn't back out if he was brave enough to do it. I must admit that I cannot possibly describe the feeling as I stepped onto that platform 192 metres high, even though attached to the harness....sheer terror and with a fixed smile which was more of a grimace!!! But oh what an experience (and what views) although it probably took me to the end of the walk before I could say I was getting confident. But a "must do" for every visitor to Auckland."Skywalk Testimonial JohnboyH, Helensburgh, UK
"The guide, Kenny, was cheeky and good fun whilst being incredibly patient, understanding and encouraging with those in our party that were nervous. In the end, we all had a great time and with some unbelievable photos as mementos."Skywalk Testimonial from Suziegg, in Melbourne, Australia
"Thrilling, exciting, extraordinary. I certainly do not have a wild streak, but I enjoyed this thrilling SkyWalk atop the Auckland landmark, the Sky Tower. You are strapped in the entire way, with a harness and a friendly, helpful and reassuring guide. And yes, you need reassurance! But I felt safe and secure, and the views at sunset from this perch were to die for. Okay, bad choice of words...Hehe. They give you a video of your SkyWalk from the point of view of your guide, and it is a special treat to see yourself doing something most people will never experience! Walking amongst the clouds high above fascinating New Zealand! Yes, do this, if you are in Auckland!!!!"Skywalk Testimonial from TravellingHoob
"Oldies don't be frightened, anyone can do it! I had a great guide, with great knowledge about Auckland."Skywalk Testimonial from Allan a New Zealand Resident
