As a SKYWALK guide I spend a lot of my time on the Observation
deck and the roof (SKYWALK). I get to meet people from all over the
world. Their reasons for visiting varies, but believe it or not, a
lot of our guests are not so keen on heights. This is not
surprising as acrophobia is one of the most common phobias, and
most people will experience it at some stage in their lifetime.
Looking back on my first SKYWALK, I remember I was excited yet
quite apprehensive. However, once I was out there surrounded by
breathtaking views, I let go of any nervous feelings. I had a great
time and it shows in the photos too, which leads me to give you all
a very important tip I received before skydiving: Always remember
to smile in your photos, regardless of how nervous you are. If you
have that awkward nervous smile during SKYWALK, you tend to look a
bit um…constipated…not a good look! So smile people :)
The SKYWALK team are professional and extremely patient and we
strive to personalise our walks to meet the diverse needs of our
guests. We empathise with the fact that not everyone is comfortable
with heights, but honestly, SKYWALK is an exhilarating,
non-strenuous and non-stressful experience. It would be a shame for
you to miss out.
SKYWALK - more serene than extreme...
Just in case you're wondering, we have not lost anyone this year
and all nervous guests have returned safely and ecstatic that they
did the SKYWALK and overcame their fear of heights. We really,
really mean it when we say that SKYWALK is more serene than
I look forward to seeing you up there, but before I go, I'll
leave you with this quote:
"I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the
triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid,
but he who conquers that fear."
- Nelson Mandela
