This is a late review as i did the free fall at Orlando in November 2015. Decided to take the free fall as it was too windy to do the Bungee Jump. The fall was extremely fun and the adrenaline rush was on another level. The only down side to this, was that i paid for the video and on... More

I was extremely scared. 100 meters bungee jump! The support from the staff at Orlando Towers Bungee was amazing. From the ladies taking my weight and payment to the amazing instructors on the platform. I always felt safe and their encouragement helped me to calm down. A bungee jump is definitely a bucket list item, something you should do once... More

Took a colleague to free fall at the towers as I am scared of heights I just watched on safe ground. He had a great time so highly recommended.

For a first time visit to Joburg and first time bungee, this was an excellent venue. Felt very professional and the staff was supportive (kept me talking up until before the jump). - Sign forms in the office and put valuables in a locked safe - can't bring camera / cell phone to top but can buy great HD pictures...

A fun and thrilling experience that I enjoyed with my pre-teen and teen kids. The team on duty was efficient and friendly. Taking a video is a must - either your own or their gopro footage (at a nominal additional fee). I would definitely do it again. The setting makes for interesting viewing - at the old Orlando Power Station... More

I was persuaded by a colleague to come here and bungee jump. The pictures sold it to me even though I'm not a fan of heights or throwing myself off them either, however, plucked up the courage and all I can say is that it was the best experience of my life. The staff were really reassuring at the top... More

Great place to do your first Bunjee jumping, its very cheap in comparison to other places. The only thing i didnt like was that if you wanted to take your gopro with you theyd charge you extra. Which forced us to buy their photos. When you jump, jump out with your arms out like diving into a pool. Makes the... More

We visited April 3rd, late afternoon. I at first wasn't going to do it as I HATE heights however after an hour I finally signed up! So glad I did, although the scariest part was when the lift stopped 3 times! I thought "Great I am going to plummet to my death on a dodgy lift" Thankfully I survived the... More

Only went up the tower, which provided great views of Soweto. The bungee and free jumping looked really fun, and the bar was pumping!

We were planning to go up to the top. Unfortunately it was a day without electricity power. Otherwise, this had been a perfect trip.
