Auckland Sky Tower – SkyJump
Base jumping with SkyJump, New Zealand’s highest jump and only base jump by wire, delivers 6000 visitors a year an exhilarating and safe experience that sees them plummet a massive 192 metres at 85 km an hour. Jumpers say they feel like they are flying.
Highly trained jump masters rope jumpers up and talk them safely up to the edge, until suddenly they find themselves leaning out over the streets of Auckland far below. After that there’s nothing to do but let go and fly!
SkyJump is one of New Zealand’s best adventure activities, rated ‘must do’ by visitors and awarded a certificate of excellence by TripAdvisor.
SkyJump can be described as base jumping while attached to a wire. It’s just like being a movie stuntman, or a super hero. Jumpers fall very fast (approx. 85kph) for around 11 seconds, and then come to a smooth landing in the SKYCITY plaza below.
SkyJump is quite different to Bungy. While both jump off something high, the similarities end there. With SkyJump, jumpers stay in a super hero style flying position, so there is no hanging around upside down or bouncing around. They simply fall fast and smooth, and land on their feet at the bottom, on the perfectly placed target.
From check-in at mission control to waving goodbye to the crew with an adrenaline fuelled grin from ear to ear, the SkyJump experience takes around 30-45 minutes.
