The British Airways i360 Viewing Tower in Brighton is taking heights to a whole new level with a brand new fun experience. The i360 Tower Top Climb offers visitors a flight in the viewing pod to 138 metres, before stepping into the tower itself and climbing 30-metres up ladders to the very top. Guests will emerge onto the open-air platform 162 metres high to experience a birds-eye view of Brighton and the South Coast.
For the first time ever, this unique experience gives visitors access to the internal workings of the i360 tower. Up to six guests will climb steep vertical ladders within the tower, accompanied by expert BA i360 technicians who will describe how the tower and pod operate. At the top of the tower, the technicians will open the hatch for guests to climb onto the outdoor platform to spend time admiring the stunning views from 162 metres high and to have several souvenir photos taken.
Ian Hart, Chief Operating Officer said, “We are really excited to announce this exciting new experience at BA i360, a new visitor offering is the perfect way to celebrate BA i360’s fifth birthday on 4th August 2021. The i360 Tower Top Climb provides everything that adventure experience seekers are looking for – the thrill of a 30 metre vertical ladder climb inside the tower, the view looking down inside the length of the tower, the fabulous open-air views from the very top of the tower, and the chance to hear from our engineers about how the i360 works.
“We think the i360 Tower Top Climb will appeal to visitors who have already enjoyed the BA i360 viewing experience and want to return for the views from an even higher vantage point. I’m also confident this challenge will appeal to a new audience for our business, those that enjoy adrenaline-fuelled activities which give you the buzz of accomplishment and leave you feeling elated.”
