Arrive in NZ… CHECK. Jump off Skytower… CHECK!
Visiting Kiwi land along with a variety of bungy jumps has been sitting at the top of my bucket list for way too many years. So there was no time to waste. Fly into Auckland, ride electric scooters, jump off Skytower!
I figured it’d be a good warm up for the Nevis Thrillogy of Bungy, Swing and Catapult – stuff I’ve wanted to do since before my hair was grey, and that’s some time ago.
The Skyjump itself turn out to be a fun, relaxing experience. Jumping off a building towards concrete somehow seems more unnatural versus jumping off a bridge into a canyon, but the skyjump is a controlled descent at around 85km/h – fast but not free fall fast.
