There were about 125 experienced jumpers from 22 countries such as from USA, Canada, Austria, Czech, Ireland, England, Holland, France, Australia, Estonia, Mexico, Belgium, Luxembourg, Portugal, Switzerland, Brazil, Greece, Finland, Denmark, Japan and Malaysia.
Our approached was 'COME & EXPERIENCE SITTING ON THE EDGE!’. Towards making the event more remarkable and full of excitement, KL Tower has offered a special package of ‘Sitting On The Edge' for visitors to see and up close the jumpers in actions at the jump point either day or night time. This was the only time of the year when visitors are allowed to sit on the edge of the open deck (Sky Deck), the moments of the jumpers made the jump and experienced the adrenaline rush of standing on the top of the world.
