Entertaining kids is no tall order for this Auckland favourite: The Sky Tower. Standing right in the heart of Auckland city at 328 metres above the ground, this attraction is suitable for everyone, from adventurous young children to adrenaline junkies.
As soon as you step through the doors, be prepared for your children to jump for joy. Travel up in the glass-fronted lifts to one of the three spectacular viewing platforms (with breathtaking views for up to 80 kilometres in every direction). The SkyDeck offers outstanding views through virtually seamless glass, taking this experience to the next level. Just watch your children run around in amazement!
Are you stuck for ideas for what to do in the holidays? During each school holiday, there are exciting themed activities for the children, and maybe some parents too! Themes include Hairy Maclary, movieland, pirates, and more. All offered for the same price, it’s sure to keep the children entertained.
Want even more thrills and excitement? SkyTower also offers the SkyWalk, where a group of friends or family can walk around the pergola at 192 metres up. A full body harness and overhead safety lines keep you safe and secure, but don’t let that fool you, it’s still no walk in the park!
Yet another big attraction is the SkyJump off the Tower. Yes, you read that right: Jump off the Tower! This is one for the bigger kids. Leap off the Tower and plunge 192 metres straight down. The family can watch kids jump from the SkyDeck through the enormous windows, allowing everyone to enjoy the excitement! Get ready for the children to have their faces pressed right up against the glass with wide eyes.
After all the exploring and excitement, sit back and refuel with family-friendly food from Sky Café. Or, for an incredible family memory, dine in at The Sugar Club or Orbit – Auckland’s only 360-degree revolving restaurant. They all provide a wide range of food that will not disappoint!
Another bonus: Cildren under 5 are FREE and children 6-14 years are $12. Family passes are provided to ensure the whole family joins in on the fun.
Open 365 days, you will be amazed at what you can see and do under one roof at the Sky Tower!http://www.skycityauckland.co.nz/attractions/skytower/
