Look 'n' Leap - SkyWalk and Sky Jump - 1 person
A gift experience for the adventurous, great videa for a 21st or 30th birthday gift.
Skywalk Life on the Edge! Walk the 1.2 metre-wide walkway around Auckland’s famous Sky tower – 192 metres above the ground, no handrails and nothing but air either side of you! SkyWalk is one of New Zealand's most exhilarating and unique tourist attractions and the most thrilling adventure to be had in Auckland City. You'll traverse 360 degrees around the spectacular Sky Tower – the tallest tower in the Southern Hemisphere - stopping at several points to have your photo taken, learn about the Tower and the area and have a go at hanging over the edge!
Safety SkyWalk has been independently approved by a certified engineer and very rigorous safety standards are upheld. SkyWalk is an adventure activity with a very low real risk but very high perceived risk. Each SkyWalker has two safety tethers from their harness up to the overhead rail. One is a climbing rope designed as a failsafe. The other is a seatbelt-type retraction system that allows the tether to be adjusted to your individual height. This means that if you do step off the pergola you simply swing back like a pendulum!
SkyJump SkyJump is a whole new way of falling off things and brings new dimensions of adrenaline, comfort and safety. You’ll be clipped to a cable in a full body harness and leap feet first. The cable drum rotates as it feeds out, the speed limited by air resistance against fan blades on the end of the drum. Jumpers fall at about 75kph until near the ground, then decelerate to a safe landing speed. The 16 second fall is breathtaking. The ground rush is unbelievable.
SkyWalk has very strict cut-off limits for wind.
Minimum weight restriction: 45kgs in winds over 45 km/h.
Maximum weight restriction: 130kg.
Minimum age: 10 years old (written parental consent is required for all people aged 10-13 years)
