The casino owned by SkyCity Entertainment Group opened its doors in 1996 and has been running successfully since then. Their doors never close and they provide top service to their players.

So, if you’re in the mood for non-stop casino entertainment then SkyCity Auckland is the place to be.

However, SkyCity Auckland has so much more to offer its visitors other than the ultimate gambling experience. Apart from 2 first-class hotels, a 700-seat theatre, a convention center, numerous bars and restaurants, the property also has the SkyCity Tower.

The tower which is a telecommunications and observer tower was constructed during 1994 and 1997.

The tower has many levels open to the public. Different floors house different facilities such as The Orbit 360° Dining restaurant, the Sugar Club restaurant and many more. What’s most special about it, it offers an exceptional educational experience for groups up to the tower and is open to public and private schools alike.


It allows students to enjoy a field trip like nothing before. The visit will last approximately 2 hours in total and includes a guide for teachers and a student workbook. The educational program called Volcanic Auckland is aligned with New Zealand’s school curriculum making it the highest and most likely the most fun classroom to exist.
