How Safe Is Skyway Rooftop?
Scenic World is renowned for its diligent and detailed approach to all levels of safety. Beyond Skyway has been developed with best-in-class engineering and safety protocols, which were developed working with Working at Heights consultant. Locked, full-body harnesses are personally fitted for each guest and from the moment that anyone steps onto the ladder to the rooftop, is always secured to one or more anchor points.
What Can I Bring Out On The Rooftop With Me?

For everything you can't take, don't sweat it! We have individual, secure pods for storage until your return.
I Have A Fear Of Heights, Will I Be OK?
The most heart-racing moment of the Beyond Skyway experience is the moment you climb through the hatch, out onto the rooftop. There is never a moment when you are not securely attached to anchor points throughout the cabin. Before going up the ladder to the rooftop you are securely attached to our Height Safety System, and from that point on are always attached until you are safely back down. However most people find that once they're sitting on the benches in the middle of the roof, that any feelings of fear wash away and a sense of tranquility replaces it. People with medically diagnosed vertigo or fear of heights cannot participate in Beyond Skyway.
Can I Still Experience Beyond Skyway If I Don't Sign The Declaration?
Not under any circumstances. Your safety is paramount to us; we need to know you’re able to safely complete Beyond Skyway. Every participant is required to complete and submit the Waiver and Disclaimer. If you are over 75 years of age, pregnant, or have a medical condition, you must also submit the Medical Form signed by a GP, no later than 3 days prior to your tour.
