Now you can jump off two Auckland landmarks - The Auckland Harbour Bridge and the Auckland Sky Tower, plus many more jumping opportunities in Queenstown.We’re stoked to be working as a team to bring you the best adventures in New Zealand. You’re the hero of every adventure we offer and with Bungys, Basejumps, Swings, Climbs and SkyWalks in Auckland and Queenstown we’ve got adrenaline-fuelled fun for every bucket list, not to mention the best views from land and sea! We had a fantastic response to our Sky Tower photo competition, thanks to everyone who entered and shared their own photos to our Facebook Page. It was hard to pick a winner from such a great range of photos including daytime, nighttime, reflections, fireworks, close up, far away and every which way! But the winner is.......... Joanne Numbuk with her stunning photo taken of the Tower at night from St Patricks Square. Joanne wins a Look and Leap voucher to do SkyJump and SkyWalk. We also picked two runner up photos, and Clare Scott with her photo taken from Westhaven, and Lydia Cerda with her reflection of the Tower who both win a SkyWalk voucher. Thanks again for all your entries, and keep following us on Facebook for more competitions soon! We are approaching the end of the school term, and mums and dads everywhere will be wondering what to do this School Holidays. Well, we can highly recommend a visit to Auckland - there a lots of fun and exciting places to visit, and not all have to break the bank. Of course, we have to recommend SkyJump and SkyWalk as your number one option, what says "I love my family" more than an adrenaline filled activity 192m off the ground? (And it's a great way to show your kids how brave you are!) After this, you might like to check out Auckland Zoo. It's baby Kiwi season, and if you are lucky you might see one of our national birds hatch. They have a great School Holiday programme called "Eye Spy" to keep the kids busy, and of course there are all the usual animals to entertain old and young. (My favourite are the Cotton top Tamarins) The Auckland Museum is another favourite family destination, with their current event on called "Celebrating the Pacific". On certain days you can catch Storytime at the Museum, Creative Crafts, and a Discover and Explore programme. And if you need to let the kids burn off some energy, why not make the most of the spring weather and visit one of Auckland's many great beaches? Takapuna beach is a great space to let the kids run around, and what tastes better than an ice-cream at the beach? Happy School Holidays everyone! We have an office with spectacular views here in Auckland! We wanted to share some of our favourite pictures of the Sky Tower and our views. Check them out and share your own photos to win a Look & Leap voucher.

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.
