What to explore at Macau Tower?
The World's Highest Bungy Jump at Macau Tower will take its guests on a free fall at a speed of up to 200km/h for the ultimate extreme journey! Plunging from a platform 233m high, challengers will experience a 4-5 second freefall before stretching the 50 meter bungy cord nearly four times its unloaded length and rebounding at approximately 30 meters above the ground. Using a guide cable system, bungy jumpers will be able to safely experience a few rebounds before slowly landing onto a specially designed airbag.
Designed and operated by two of the world's greatest adventure master-minds, AJ Hackett and Waitomo Adventures, the SkyJump will take guests on a 20 second flight over the breathtaking cityscape of Macau from 233 m aboveground.
Unlike the free-falling Bungy Jump, SkyJump utilizes the technology of 'Fan Descenders' to let its guests fly through air at 75km/h, without rebounding or inverting, before decelerating to a comfortable landing speed upon reaching ground. Or you can try the Tandem SkyJump to enjoy the thrill with your beloved one!
Very thrilling walk around the main outer rim of the tower, 233 meters above ground. Safety is guaranteed by a world-first overhead rail system.

Tips for you
The macau tower is the one among the tallest tower in the world. It as a glass flooring in its view area and u can see the mainlaind china as well as macau from there. Its nearly 65 floors high and a high speed lift takes u to the top in a minute. U can watch bungy jumps from the observation deck. The bungy jump is pricey as also the video for the bungy jump. There is a cafe in the observation deck and the ground floor of the tower has food courts and shopping outlets. The tower is is at the water edge in the Macau Bay.
Breathtaking and panoramic views all around and a look down through the clear glass tiles on the floor of the observation deck can make you feel weak in the stomach, even if you are not acrophobic ! This tower is is at the water edge in the Macau Bay and this gives wonderful views of the sea, the vessels sailing around etc.... don't know if any of the other taller towers are so strategically located to give views of the sea and land around it ! Make sure you pick a day with a clear skies to get the best view, though the light can be too bright for the better part of the day for good photos. The world's highest Bungee jump at 233 meters, a Skywalk for the not so adventurous ones, while you can watch the Bungee jumpers and the Skywalkers from the observation deck. But the jump can set you back by a nice and tidy sum of almost US $ 450 and another US $ 100 for the GoPro video ... but still, the AJ Hackett center for the Bungee jump and the Skywalk are always busy ! The Bungee jumpers seemed to be having two diagonal wire harnesses also tied on to their waist in addition to the rope tied to their feet..... so, probably, you do not get that jerk when you hit the bottom of the drop... may be a much more comfortable damped and gradual descent for the last 10 meters ?? Don't know about this for sure though .... All said, the US$ 17 admission fee is worth it !
Don't forget to go up at level 58 and 61 and take a snap on glass floor just like I did.
