Macau Tower Convention & Entertainment Centre
Macau Tower Convention & Entertainment Centre Review
Rising above peaceful San Van Lake, the 335-meter (1,100-foot) freestanding tower recalls Sky Tower, a similar structure in New Zealand—and it should, as both were designed by New Zealand architect Gordon Moller. The Macau Tower offers a variety of thrills, including the Mast Climb, which challenges the daring and strong of heart and body with a two-hour climb on steel rungs 105 meters (344 feet) up the tower's mast for incomparable views of Macau and China. Other thrills include the Skywalk X, an open-air stroll around the tower's exterior—without handrails; the SkyJump, an assisted, decelerated 233-meter (765-foot) descent; and the world's highest bungee jump. More subdued attractions inside the tower are a mainstream movie theater and a revolving lunch, high tea, and dinner buffet at the 360-degree Café.
