This landmark is a must-visit in Soweto. During the Apartheid era, the towers were used by a coal-burning plant to produce electricity for the northern suburban region of Johannesburg. On the other hand, Soweto’s people became the sufferers as they were left to inhale the poisonous smoke emit from these towers. These towers worked till 1998 and after that it was left neglected and unused. However in 2007, Skyriders transformed these unused towers into an entertainment area – a vertical adventure facility and a prominent landmark for tourists. Today, these towers hold a special place for adrenaline junkies who wish to experience activities like swinging, bungee jumping, rap jumping, climbing, abseiling and a zip line. The towers also serve as giant billboards where artistic murals depicting the lifestyle in Soweto have been done.
While exploring the city, your eyes cannot ignore the giant painting of ‘Madiba waving his hand’ on the towers.

Staff are very friendly and generally happy atmosphere. Bungee experience was excellent and safety was treated with utmost importance. Recommend getting the video after the jump, as the editing is done well.
Awesome place if you looking for an adrenaline rush to tick off your bucket list. The staff are friendly and very efficient. Make sure the go pro camera lens is clean before doing a jump.
Best place to go with your partner and chill, have fun and feel good!!!! I love it!
Safe jump. Friendly staff. No locker rooms. Better take a friend along
Orlando Cooling towers in the Soweto region. You can bungee jump here and there's a heap of small stalls selling souvenir's. (I did not bungee jump)
