Keep Your Cool on the Orlando Towers BungeeGauteng, South Africa
Teeter on a platform strapped to a suspension bridge and take in the views of South Africa’s famous Soweto neighbourhood before plummeting towards the concrete below. Forget a purpose-built steel tower; here jumpers bungee in one of the world’s most unusual settings – between the cooling towers of a former coal-fired power station.
Endorphin-seekers can clamber up the sides and free fall down the centre into a net, but opt for the bungee and you’ll think you’re leaping towards the apocalypse as you hurtle 100 metres with only a cord to save you.
Jumps cost about US$35.
Bungee-jumping is never for the faint-of-heart, and this industrial thrill ride is no different!
