The decommissioned cooling towers in Soweto were originally built for the Orlando Power Station, but is now the surface of South Africa’s largest mural and site of the world’s first power swing between two cooling towers.
Guests are harnessed by a guide and then lifted in an open-air elevator to a height of 97m. A floating staircase takes guests to the final 3m to the 100m viewing deck with a 360º view across the horizon. Guests have one of two choices: descend the drop into the cooling tower or swing between the two.
