Why Macau Tower Bungy Jump is special ?
If you have a chance to visit Macau, do not forget to go to Macau Tower, an important landmark of the city. It was designed by Gordon Moller, a famous architect of New Zealand. The construction was finished in December, 2001, at the 2nd year anniversary of Macau's return. It was the eighth highest tower in Asia and the tenth in the world by the year of its completion. Besides, it is a member of the World Federation of Great Towers. It is such a charming place attracting more than 1 million people to visit in a year in different ways.
Macau Tower is 338 meters (about 1,108 feet) above the ground. The highest observation level is the Outdoor Observation Deck on Level 61, with a height of 223 meters (about 732 feet). Walking around the Observation Deck, You can have a panoramic view of the Peal River Delta, Macau Peninsula and Taipa, Coloane islands. The Observation Lounge is on Level 58. It is a fascinating place to see the sunrise in the morning or see the spectacular night-view of Macau. Looking down, you can see the East and west Mangyang Hill, Casino Lisboa and even the outlying island of Hong Kong in sunny days.
What to explore at Macau Tower Bungy Jump?
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.
Conquer Macau's highest summit, at 338 meters, and stand at the top of the world's 10th tallest free-standing tower by climbing 100 meters up the mast's vertical ladders. The ascent and descent takes approximately 2 hours and is not for the unfit or faint-hearted. Maximum height exposure and best views of Macau guaranteed.

Tips for you
Don't forget to go up at level 58 and 61 and take a snap on glass floor just like I did.
Me and my wife visited Macau in March 2008, during our short stay in Macau we visited the Macau tower/ centre and spent a few hours here.We paid to go up the tower which was not exspensive and was not that busy (the weather was quite cloudy) whilst up at the top my wife did the skywalk which she seemed to really enjoy, there are other activities which you can do like bungee jumping and the mast climb (look on their website for more information)Once you come down from the tower there are some other things you can see and do and also places for you to eat.overall good valve for money and well worth a visit.
When I first read about the Mast Climb on the Internet, I knew that I had to do it. The price was a bit discouraging (MOP 888 plus admission fee to the observation deck) but it looked like an exhilarating experience. I was right!I believe that advance bookings of this activity are required due to the need for a guide. You start on the observation deck by stripping to your underwear and donning an orange jumpsuit. You will sweat! (AJ Hackett provides lockers for your valuables. For safety reasons, you may not bring your own camera. Sunglasses are allowable.) The guide then attaches all of the safety equipment (harness, carabiners, etc.) to your body.After the discussion of safety and the overall plan, you climb about 50 meters up ladders inside the tower to the first of three external platforms. You are always connected to the ladder by a special device that attaches to a rail that runs alongside the ladder.Once you get outside, enjoy the view, take a few pictures and shoot some video, the real fun begins! You climb the outside of the tower to the next two platforms. (Friends may watch you climb through the glass roof of the observation deck.) The ladder becomes narrower and narrower as the circumference of the tower shrinks to nothing. Finally, you're at the top, perched on a tiny platform, looking down on the world!If climbing a 338-meter tower doesn't take you sufficiently out of your comfort zone, you can clip onto the ladder and let go! The guide will take pictures and video of your aerial acrobatics. (Once you return to the observation deck, you receive a souvenir Mast Climb t-shirt, a certificate and a photo. You may also buy a CD of photos and a DVD of your climb.)I would like to congratulate everyone involved with the Mast Climb for creating such a fun, safe adventure activity. The safety equipment and procedures allowed me to enjoy the thrill of the climb.
If you're an adrenaline junkie, you'll love this place. Macau Tower is the home of AJ Hackett Macau Tower. This is the worlds highest bungy jump at 233 meters (about 764 feet) from the 61st story of the tower.On most bungy jumps, the fall is so fast you don't get past the initial rush, but this one you free fall for a good 10+ seconds, so you have time to get your wits together and really understand and enjoy the experience. Watch my video on YouTube to see what it's like. Search YouTube for Mykle1AZ.Macau is a quick, and cheap, ferry ride from Hong Kong. I'd highly recommend this experience to all adrenaline junkies.For the less adventurous, there are lots of other activities.
