Sky Walk Dubai – Scaling A Skyscraper From The Outside

Last Updated:

Dubai doesn't have a lack of towering skyscrapers- one of its most recently completed projects is Sky Views, nestled in the heart of Downtown Dubai. With a striking observatory and exhilarating activities to behold, you're in for a real treat.

Of the activities, Sky Walk Dubai is one of the more recent attractions open to the public. The Sky Walk is essentially the world's longest footbridge between the two Sky View Towers. Brace yourself for the ultimate adrenaline rush as you scale the building 220 meters above ground level.

Mind you: you're walking OUTSIDE the building, high above ground level. But fret not, for you'll be roped in with a safety harness. Besides, once you're on the outside, you'll be so distracted by the spectacular views of Dubai, you won't have time to think about your fear!

What Is The Edge Sky Walk Experience?

Add a splash of adventure to your trip to Dubai with The Edge Sky Walk! Sky View's Edge Walk is not for the light-hearted, for you walk hands-free along the ledge of the building's 53rd floor. That's right- you're 220 meters above ground level, scaling the outside of the building. This is the activity daredevils were meant to try!

The Sky Walk is considered to be one of Dubai's more recent thrilling activities and everyone is giving it a go (as should you!) It is definitely the first of its kind and guests are eagerly taking to the skies and enjoying the full circle hands-free walk on the Tower's main pod.

As you defy gravity, make sure you soak up the stunning views of Dubai's glittering skyline (notice the Burj Khalifa sticking out like a sore thumb!) With nothing between you and the views but thin air, this takes thrill-seeking to the next level.

Why Try Out Sky Walk Dubai

Picture this: walking in the sky with the Dubai skyline sparkling in front of you. Add to this a balcony view of the world-famous Burj Khalifa? Sign me up! Make this dream a reality by heading to the Address Sky View and zooming up to the 53rd floor for the exhilarating Sky Walk experience.

In the year of 2017, Address announced its ambition of opening up the Sky Walk, also known as Edge Walk allowing all guests to walk in the sky. This is not your ordinary observation deck (although there is an observation deck as well!) Walk on a 30-meter-long cantilever that runs outside the observation deck on the 53rd floor of the Address Sky View!
