The Theme park is a fun place to be, especially with the kids. I enjoyed the outing and appreciated their hygienic attention. Their toilets were clean, and there were emergency vehicle's visible at most points.

For a day out with a child, nothing beats the Theme Park at Gold Reef City. Sunshine, fresh air, junk food and dozens of super fun rides. Every visit is a 100 percent success!
