Sky Tower, the brave game

Auckland's Sky Tower
It is a pity that I have never been to New Zealand. But what I know about the country is the beautiful scenery, endless prairie with a lot of sheep, and the Sky Tower on which you can overview the whole Sky City.
The Sky Tower is the tallest building in New Zealand, up to 328 meters high. It is located on Victoria Street in Auckland City. Maybe it is like the Tokyo Tower or Tokyo SkyTree. Tourists can take the elevator in just 40 seconds to get a subjective view of Auckland City View Terrace Panorama. Visitors who have courage to stand on the glass floor with a single step can have a look at the amazing scenery outside.
The tower also has some entertainment such as 'Sky Jump.' It is a game for the brave person who will jump from the observation deck about 192 meters, during which the jumper can reach up to 85 km/hr.
The tower is also used for telecommunications like other towers, because of its height. But the most beautiful scenery is the blinking lights around the tower when night comes. I dream that one day I can go there to see the tower, to see the Sky City and the whole New Zealand.
