Built originally for Orlando’s Power Station, the towers host one of the world’s more incongruous bungee jumps. Once painted a drab white, one tower is now decorated with a colourful mural, the largest in South Africa, depicting, among others, Nelson Mandela, singer Yvonne Chaka Chaka, and a football stadium. The other tower displays the FNB logo (the bank commissioned the murals in 2002). There’s a bar and hang-out area with good-looking staff and ‘Xtreme’-ly loud music.
