Uau! I'd never guess i would bungee jump between old cooling towers in soweto! But this was an amazing experience! The jump is scary, but it was worth it. The view is pretty cool with the city and the colorful towers!

They have a few options of activities to do there (bungee, swing, free fall - inside one tower, paintball). I did the tower swing. One of the biggest adrenaline rushes of my life! It was awesome. The only thing I didn't like was the fact that they charged me to take my own GoPro up with me. They charged the... More

The towers are the first thing that you see welcoming you to Soweto. It is very bright and colorful detailed with various artwork. It has wall climbing and other activities.

We had an office Christmas party at this place. There are two old decommissioned cooling towers for a thermal power station. The main attraction is bunjee jumping. There is also wall climbing and quad biking. You can also relax to some drinks, braai or "shisa nyama" as it is called locally at Chav Poz restaurant just next to the twin... More

We went to towers for a team building and I loved the experience. The place is very rustic and the bathrooms have the most amazing graffiti. The staff are very safety conscious and I felt comfortable doing the activities. I love the quad biking out ride and they offer paintball, wall climbing and an awesome bungee jump too.

We had such a amazing friend's birthday party, where we experienced well organised but crazy jump. You can also do wall climbing, 40 m free fall, enjoy food and bar facilities. If you like to try something new in the center of Soweto, then it will be worth your time!!!!

This is by far the most scariest thing I have ever done in my life. I did not do the bungy jump, but I did do the swing. Holy crap. It is so high and going up that lift just adds to the suspense of jumping off one of these really well decorated cooling towers. It was well worth the... More

This Jump at Orlando Towers was a nice jump as the Towers were nicely decorated and the vibe was great however the staff could have been more on time and more prepared when getting us ready to jum. There was no music on top of the towers to get us pumped up which would have also been nice.
