Sky Tower, Auckland Reviews
Sky tower is one of the iconic places in Auckland. It gives great views all over Auckland city. There are a lot of adventurous activities to do for people. There is a restaurant as well. You can have photographs taken and get them at the reception with effects. It gives awesome views of Auckland all around. The elevator takes you to different levels. Walking on the glass floor is quite an experience. It’s a good visit if you visit Auckland.
Amazing views (obviously), with a multitude of restaurants and services available. Friendly and helpful staff, with relatively good value food and drinks at orbit 360. Would definitely recommend 360 for the views and service, food and drinks were rather pleasant as well. Gift shop at bottom seems a little too touristy though, as the sky tower seemingly attracts as many local tourists as it does international.
Such a wonderful place located in the center of Auckland... I had an amazing experience there and worth every penny... stunning views of the city above and also nice facilities you can find... nice cafe, good restaurant with awesome food with good prices as well... clean place and the staff is very helpful... you will love it there and if you like extreme stuff you can a bungee jumping or a sky walk...
Fantastic views of Auckland, 360deg, from the Sky Tower's observation decks! On a good clear day, you have a brilliant view of all of Auckland, and further afield. You won't go hungry or thirsty either, as there is a small cafe on the lower deck serving a variety of snacks and both alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks. Want a "sit down meal"? The Orbiter Restaurant is the place to dine. Sit down and enjoy your meal, and you'll see Auckland whilst you rotate around! For the "dare-devils" who are in for a thrilling/exciting experience, bungy jump off the Tower, or walk around the outside of the Tower, looking down on the city below.
The view from Sky Tower is pretty spectacular. Is it worth $29 each? Well... It's hard to say. A visit to Sky Tower is nice if you have a few hours to kill. However, coupled with how expensive everything is, and how packed the tower is even on a very cloudy and dark day. It's a mixed bag. Unfortunately unless you are staying in the hotel there's nowhere to put your luggage, leaving you to carry it around with you through all of the crowded floors. A big positive though was that after lugging our bags through Auckland it was nice that at floor 60 there's actually some chairs to sit on to relax and enjoy the view. One really big annoyance though is the queueing system and pseudo-security scattered throughout the tower. The security are really just a bunch of posers. There are no metal detectors, no body searches, no nothing. The "guards" there have less muscle than the doormen you see out the front of bars and clubs. It seems their only purpose is to make sure that no one can get in without a ticket and not too many people take the lift at once. Like I said there's more security at a courthouse or bar 🙄
