Fodor's Expert Review Sky Tower
This 1,082-foot beacon is the first place many Aucklanders take visiting friends to give them a view of the city. Up at the main observation level, glass floor panels let you look past your feet to the street hundreds of yards below. Adults step gingerly onto the glass, while kids delight in jumping up and down on it. Through glass panels in the floor of the elevator you can see the counterweight of the Sky Jump, a controlled leap off the 630-foot observation deck that provides an adrenaline rush.
