Getting on top of Maze Bank in GTA 5 is easy. Here’s how to do it.

How To Get On Top of Maze Bank in GTA 5

GTA 5’s open world is full of buildings in all shapes and sizes, but none is more recognizable than Maze Bank – the tallest skyscraper in the game.

Unfortunately, there is no way to enter Maze Bank in GTA 5, like many other buildings in the game. You can get on top of Maze Bank and do fun stuff, such as skydiving or taking on the Dom Mission Targeted Risk.

This quick guide will show you how to get on top of Maze Bank.

Where is Maze Bank in GTA 5?

Maze Bank, also known as Maze Bank Tower, is located at Pillbox Hill in San Andreas. Maze Bank is the tallest tower in the game, sporting 96 floors.

Getting on top of Maze Bank will require a helicopter.

You can’t miss Maze Bank in GTA V, as it is one of the most recognizable buildings in the game. The epic Bank Tower is between San Andreas Avenue, Vespucci Boulevard, Alta Street, and Power Street.

As one of the tallest skyscrapers in the game, Maze Bank is a prime location for parachuting in GTA V. Unfortunately, there is no way to enter the skyscraper from the ground, as the building is closed off like most buildings in the game.

Use a helicopter to get on top of Maze Bank Tower in GTA V.

The only way to get on top of Maze Bank is by flying an aircraft and landing it on the helipad on top of Maze Bank. Ideally, you will want a helicopter, as landing a plane on the tower is impossible. Alternatively, you can also get a hold of the Atomic Blip and land it on the helipad.

In GTA Online, you can use aircraft with VTOL (Vertical Take Off and Landing) capability, such as the Hydra, or call Pegasus to deliver a helicopter if you have already purchased one.

How can Franklin Get A Helicopter?

There are many ways to get a helicopter in GTA V Story Mode. You can steal a helicopter from Los Santos International Airport, but you will instantly incur Wanted Levels as soon as you enter the airport.

The quickest method is by using cheats. However, this method will disable all achievements in your current session, making getting a Gold Medal in missions such as Targeted Risk impossible.

You can instantly spawn a Buzzard Attack Chopper by using the following cheat code:

  • PlayStation: Circle, Circle, L1, Circle, Circle, Circle, L1, L2, R1, Triangle, Circle, Triangle, Circle, Triangle
  • Xbox: B, B, LB, B, B, B, LB, LT, RB, Y, B, Y
  • Phone: 1-999-2899-633

The safest method is to get a helicopter from the Central Los Santos Medical Center. You will not get a Wanted Level for stealing a helicopter there; you can also safely reach the rooftop helipad by using the stairs.

What is Maze Bank Tower in real life?

Maze Bank Tower is based on the U.S. Bank Tower in Los Angeles, California – one of the largest buildings in the world. However, unlike Maze Bank Tower in GTA 5, the U.S. Bank Tower only features 72 floors.

A real-life building that matches Maze Bank Tower’s total floor count can be found in New York. The 432 Park Avenue Tower in New York stands at 1,396 feet or 426 meters and features 96 floors.

Nevertheless, it makes a ton of sense for Rockstar Games to add a counterpart of the U.S. Bank Tower in GTA 5 since Los Santos is a parody of Los Angeles.

Final Thoughts

You can only get on top of Maze Bank by using a helicopter, a blip, or jumping off a plane and parachuting to the tower. There are various methods to get the aircraft necessary to get on top of Maze Bank, and it’s up to you to decide which method you use to get these aircraft.

Just remember that you cannot get a Gold Medal in the Dom Mission if you use cheats to get the Buzzard Attack Chopper, and you’ll get a Wanted Level by stealing a chopper from Los Santos International Airport.
