If you’re feeling brave why not have a go at the world’s largest bungy jump?  At 233m it’s not for the faint hearted. You can also enjoy great panoramic views from the top of one of Macau’s icons – the Macau tower (338m).

The bungee chain AJ Hackett runs the jump.

Jumpers have to be a minimum weight of 40kg and a maximum weight of 110kg and pregnant women are not allowed to jump.

One jump will set you back around MOP $1,688. This includes a certificate, membership card, and t-shirt. A second jump costs MOP $588.

However, the Macau tower also offers several other adrenalin filled activities.

If dangling at the end of a bungee cord isn’t your cup of tea why not have a go at the skywalk. The walk takes you around the outer rim of the tower and is the highest skywalk in the world. Be warned there is no handrail (although there is a overhead rail system). The walk will set you back around MOP$588.

For those who want to get to the very top of tower try the mast climb. The climb takes a minimum of an hour and you scale the towers antenna (338m high). Those brave enough can lean off the top and hope your harness holds out! The climb costs MOP $1,688.

If bungee is a bit passé  have a go at a sky jump – a 17 second flight where you reach a speed of nearly 75km/hr. The Guinness World Records has awarded it the “Highest Commercial Decelerator Descent” in the world. There is a minimum weight limit of 35kg and a maximum weight of 120kg.

The Macau tower is also home to a large climbing wall – 32m high. There are a choice of three routes and they are of varying difficulty.

Advanced booking for the majority of the activities (except the skywalk) is required.

Opening Hours: The tower is open 11am – 730pm Monday to Thursday and stays open until 9pm on Friday. On Saturday and Sundays the tower is open from 10am-9pm.
