- Optus Stadium to enhance HALO rooftop tours with a new ‘on top of the world’ experience
- Visitors of all ages and abilities can enjoy 360-degree views of Perth and the world’s most beautiful stadium, Optus Stadium
- Thrill seekers will have the option to experience an unprecedented view over the field of play from the Western Gantry, 42 metres in the air
- Set to open in 2022 with construction already commenced
An exciting addition to Optus Stadium’s rooftop attractions is set to offer visitors an ‘on top of the world’ experience from the Western Gantry in 2022.
The new element will complement the HALO rooftop tours, allowing thrill seekers to feel the wind beneath their feet as they walk 42 meters above the field of play while taking in a 360-degree view of Perth without rails.
Making the HALO experience safely accessible for all abilities and ages, the visitor experience will add to the already successful suite of stadium tours, sold from THE OZONE..
The new addition is set to provide an unparalleled vantage point with unique views of Perth’s landscape – from the Perth Hills in the east, to the city landscape in the west, as part of the 90-minute HALO tour around the stadium's panoramic rooftop walkway.
To ensure a safe and secure experience, visitors will be required to wear a safety harness on the roof above the field of play.
A key priority of the State Government and VenuesWest was to ensure this experience is accessible to as many of the public as possible. Individuals Requiring Universal Access (IRUA) can access the attraction via a lift in the stadium.
