A Sky Walk in New Zealand

By Linda Tancs

What’s taller than the Eiffel Tower, has three circular public observation levels and a view of 51 miles (give or take) on a clear day?  Why, it’s the Sky Tower in Auckland, New Zealand.  The twelfth tallest tower in the world, each of its observation decks offers 360-degree views of the city–and beyond.  If you’re not content to admire the surroundings from the inside, you can walk or jump as well.  The SkyJump lets you feel like Superman as you base jump 192 meters straight down.  If that’s not enough of a rush for you, then consider the SkyWalk, a jaunt aruond the edge of Sky Tower’s pergola in a full body harness and overhead safety lines.
