Great for Couples, Family and Solo visits. This Theme Park is affordable and very enjoyable with lots to see, do and taste. Loads of rides, a Casino, Hotel, Animal Petting farm, Food Courts, etc. to name a few. A must do when in Joburg. Your kids will love you for it.

loads of family fun , kids are always entertained and the train ride is a must for the little ones ... the 4d experience is also good - value for money although if you go in the peak seasons you might be spending a lot of time in long queues but overall definitely worth the trip

The theme park has about 5 or 6 really decent rides and multiple smaller rides. Alot of decent food and drink available inside. Plus a pleathora of other activities to do, including a casino, theatre and historic mine. Well worth a visit if you are in Joberg

Gold reef city looks a little tired but is worth a visit, albeit if it's only once. I would not add this to my bucket list though.
