Daredevils, make your way to the Sky Tower to check in for your SkyJump Auckland experience with an expert jump master, who provides a safety briefing and SkyJump suit to put on over your clothing.
Once your safety harness is securely fastened, head up the Sky Tower to the SkyJump platform, located 630 feet above the ground. Standing at the ledge and attached to a thick wire, feel your heart race as you look out over Auckland and the Hauraki Gulf from above.
Ensuring that all safety checks are in place, your guide begins the countdown until you jump, plunging 50 mph (85 kph) in just over 10 seconds. Unlike bungy jumping, you’ll remain in a 'super hero' position during a smooth fall, then land on your feet at the bottom — no hanging upside down or bouncing in the air.
On the ground, celebrate your accomplishment with a certificate at the landing zone where family and friends can watch from the viewing area. If you wish, purchase souvenir photos or video taken from the attached GoPro camera, which records your jump from start to finish.
All jumpers receive a free ticket to the observation deck in the Sky Tower, so that you can go back up the tower, admire the views, and watch other jumpers take the plunge.
