Gold Reef City, located on the outskirts of the city of Johannesburg, is a fun day out for the family. There are plenty of attractions to amuse all age groups, and a large variety of food outlets to meet most tastes. When we were there recently, some of the rides had closed for refurbishment/ service, which was not a problem... More

well, I'm not a big fan of parks... besides visiting the mine (which is very cool)... all the rest is pretty average.

This theme park is great fun with a variety of rides and things to do. Went as a couple, which worked well, no need to go in a group. Went off-peak though, as it can get very busy and queues can be very long during holidays. Well-maintained and clean facilities.

We only took part in the Heritage Trail, as were on a day tour experience. This was very interesting and included a trip down the old mine, 75 meters underground. Overall an interesting part of the Johannesburg history.

A great experience all round. A little something for everyone. The young ones enjoyed the Themepark as well as the mineshaft.The adults had a great time at the Lyric Theatre. The Boston Barbeque finished the outing perfectly.

We opted for the Birthday Thrills option to celebrate our daughter's 6th birthday and was pleasantly surprised by the excellent service from everyone at the theme park. Starting at the Birthday Thrills reception (skip the que and get instant access) all the way through. Every member of staff treated us to a friendly smile and their kind assistance. We received...

Awesome place to get your thrill fix! Over all it does need some touching up here and there, but it's a great way to spend a full day out in the sun!

We have taken our one boy there with his friends for his birthday for 3 years in a row. The kids have got braver over the years and now do everything including the Anaconda. The rides are awesome but Miners Revenge is still my favourite. Tip: get there as it opens to ensure the kids get their moneys worth.
