About
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.

We did the SkyWalk and I would thoroughly recommend it, if you are not terrified of heights. The safety briefing and explanation of what the SkyWalk involved was great.

Some people in our tour of six were hesitant at the start, but most had more or less conquered their fears by the end. Keanu, our guide, was very professional, informative and encouraging. He did not force anyone in the tour do participate in any of his challenges (e.g. walk with your eyes closed, lean out backwards and lean forwards over the walkway edge).

if you want to see Auckland from a different perspective and challenge yourself, go for this. Get out of your comfort zone!

VISIT: end of February 2020
BOOKING: Directly through their website, but I saw them on several other sites
BOOK AHEAD: the time slots do book up, so make sure to book ahead of time

I did the Sky Jump in Las Vegas literally almost 10 years exactly before we were going to be in Auckland. So, when I found out there was a Sky Jump in Auckland, I KNEW I had to do it again. It's a BEAUTIFUL way to see Auckland, although it passes by very quickly.

For those not familiar, the Sky Jump is a vertical free fall. So some have described it as a vertical zip line and the free fall part of skydiving. I just love it and it's a great thrill along with a beautiful view of Auckland which for us, we wouldn't have been able to see otherwise.

The staff was extremely helpful and did a great job of calming our nerves. Your jump includes a shirt and there are other souvenirs to buy before and after your jump. There are also photo and video packages and you can see the photos and videos before you even buy. My husband and I opted for just the USB which includes our videos and it is a unique carabiner USB that I still use today.

NOTE: you cannot take anything up with you on the Jump, even my little hairclip got taken for the staff to hold. There are lockers when you get there, but probably best to leave everything behind, if you can.

When we did the SkyWalk, it was only our family of five in the group and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and lots of fun and excitement was had by all. From the moment we checked-in, changed, went through the safety briefing and did the actual SkyWalk itself, everything was handled efficiently and effectively. Furthermore, our guide Felix was extremely professional, informative and entertaining. The challenges that we performed, such as leaning forward and backwards over the edge of the walk-way, as well as walking backwards and walking with our eyes closed, all with our arms outstretched, enhanced the overall enjoyable exhilarating experience. We would definitely recommend doing the SkyWalk.

A great experience. One of us had a fear of heights to conquer and they were super accomodating. The walk is rather short - you only walk around part of the Skytower. We’d booked online, only to find they had overcharged us. More than two months later we are still waiting for our refund. Not impressed.

Highly recommend this activity. Done this today with Chris who was our guide. He really made the adventure more special we felt completely safe. It is much more than just a walk around the building. Chris pointed out landmarks and gave us some history of the area whilst we undertook this activity. Thank you to Chris.

The skyjump was admittedly one of the things I was most excited about doing in Auckland and it didn't disappoint. The team was friendly and fun, and hyped everyone up for their jump. It's a controlled free fall so if bungee seems a bit too scary, give this a try. It's over almost too quickly but fun the whole way. I loved it!

Tried SkyWalk instead of SkyJump having done the skydive in the trip. It's more scary to lean forward and look down on toes leaving your hands off. One of the best adrenaline fun to have to test your fear.....

It's great that you LOVED the Skywalk and got outside your comfort zone by leaning out over the edge. We hope to see you back. Thanks for leaving a review. Cheers!

We took the skywalk and it was OK, but a bit more sedate than we expected. Guides were very cautious, which is a good thing when so high above the ground, but the tour did not have the excitement factor we expected. We went on the bridge bungy jump also, which we would recommend over the skywalk if one is undecided on which to do.

Hi there, it's great that you felt safe and enjoyed the views of the Skywalk. Our wide range of activities cater to all different comfort levels when it comes to gravity related thrills, even though the Skywalk wasn't your speed it's good that you found a rush at the Auckland Bridge Bungy! Thanks for the review. Cheers!

I went with wife on 6 January 2020. Auckland Sky Tower is the tallest structure in New Zealand. SkyJump and Skywalk are based on the in the Auckland Skytower. From our hotel tour manager of Thomas Cook took us to the Sky Tower by bus.
We enjoyed the magnificent view of Auckland city from the SkyTower (630 feet, 192 meters).
I was motivated to jump and make a record. I have no doubt that SkyJump is also supremely safe and comfortable. I witnessed that there was no hanging upside down, and all landed gently on the feet on the landing platform below. I was scared to sky jump (my age 72 years).
I took photos and video.

We hope you're enjoying your visit to Auckland! The Skyjump is completely safe and suitable for all ages; we can even slow down the landing for you to make it as smooth as possible. We would LOVE to have you come back and jump!
