Sky Tower bus hits the road!

7 December 2010

SKYCITY is set to send the all new Sky Tower courtesy bus on the road this December in time for school holidays and the extra visitors Auckland attracts over the warmer months. The free bus, which will be branded with images of Auckland’s favourite fun time out, the Sky Tower and SKYCITY, is sure to attract attention and get people excited about getting around town!

The bus will pick at the home of the Sky Tower, SKYCITY, and do a 30 minute circuit to Auckland Hotels and other attractions including the Auckland Museum and the Viaduct’s Maritime Museum. On board, tickets to the Sky Tower will be available, making it even easier and quicker to get up the tower.

Popular with tourists and locals alike, the Sky Tower is the tallest man-made structure in New Zealand stretching 328 metres high and offering stunning views 80km in every direction. Guests travel up in a glass fronted lift to one of three spectacular viewing platforms or can visit the world famous Sky Jump or Sky Walk.

Sky Tower opening hours:
Sunday – Thursday; 8.30am - 10.30pm (last tickets sold at 10pm)
