Many of these people have just arrived in Auckland. Occasionally we have the odd local come in with their best friend George up from Christchurch for a few days who wants to do SkyJump. Or the poor bloke whose girlfriend bought him a voucher for their anniversary. He really didn't want to do the jump because of his extreme fear of heights but he had to because it was a gift. A fear of heights is called Acrophobia. I looked this up in my lunch break. Alternatively he could have had an acute case of Doronophobia, which is a phobia of receiving gifts. Either way I felt sorry for him. I've also noticed that it’s always the people who don’t want to jump off tall buildings that get given SkyJump as a present. Why is that? But I digress. People arrive in Auckland, they make their way into the city and of course they see the Sky Tower. Then they see that there are people jumping off the tower. Naturally they are intrigued. The more adventurous new arrivals make their way through the City of Sails in search of these falling people, and they find their way down to SkyJump Mission Control. There they are confronted by yet another incredible adventure, the incomparable SkyWalk; at which point they realise there is a new addition to the pantheon of questions troubling humanity since the dawn of time.
