The Orlando Towers vertical adventure facility was the brainchild of Bob Woods back in 2001. Bob, a Skyriders director and rope access specialist for many years, was contracted to provide the rope access technicians for maintenance operations on the disused towers, and was awe-struck by their power and magnificence - enough to want to share the "almost religious" experience of viewing Soweto from the top of the towers with the world at large.

His idea was to build the first ever vertical adventure center in a cooling tower, offering swinging, bungee jumping, climbing , abseiling, rap jumping, a zip line and more.

The Orlando Towers vertical adventure site is the fruition of many years of negotiation with the local municipality, engineers and bridge builders, and the people of Soweto themselves.
