A new virtual reality (VR) attraction has opened on Auckland’s Sky Tower.

It offers users a computer-generated slide around the building travelling at a virtual 160km/h.

Customers use a VR headset up the tower, 186m above street level, before being virtually whizzed around the tower with 360-degree views.

The attraction is known as SkySlide. It joins other recent additions at the SkyCity complex such as the All Blacks Experience and Wētā Workshop Unleashed.

SkyCity’s Chief Operating Officer Callum Mallett said SkySlide has been in the planning for a number of years.

The SkyCity website is taking bookings for SkySlide from $40 for adults and $28 for children aged 10-14.

Those costs include Sky Tower admission.
