All About Mobile Bungee and SCAD Freefall

Soweto Towers ON THE GO is coming to the Royal Show! You will need to hold on to your hats for this exciting adrenaline-fueled event, wherein a 50m mobile bungee and SCAD freefall facility will see show goers hurtling through the air! Of all the activities at the Show, this event lures only the brave…

Everyone has heard of the Soweto Towers or Orlando Towers (one in the same thing!) in Johannesburg. This legendary vertical adventure centre attracts thousands of locals and tourists year-round to leap from the suspension bridge and enjoy the rush of air as they race to the ground.

Now, the team at Orlando Towers are coming to the Royal Show to spread the adrenaline rush across the country. Soweto Towers ON THE GO is bringing a 50m bungee and SCAD freefall vertical adventure centre to your doorstep. This is a first for the Show and will definitely be a huge attraction amongst the agricultural exhibitions and animals.

Orlando Towers was conceived in 2001 by the late founders Bob Woods and Brownlee Barry, with the first bungee jump finally taking place in 2009. Current owner and manager Nico Myburg has twenty years of bungee and extreme sport experience and is motivated to introduce people from all walks of life to the world of adrenaline. Safety is the highest priority for the Orlando Towers team – and by extension, the Soweto Towers ON THE GO team. Both the permanent and mobile vertical adventure centre aim to excite and entertain tourists and show goers alike.
