Gold reef city has been around for many years and evokes happy childhood memories. It’s always a fun day out but many of attractions are very old and tatty. Queues can get really long so definitely go off peak times . I would recommend it however as the kid a love going.

Day out with family and friends at the theme is great fun. Been there many a time and still fun. The casino area is not for all but nice restaurants around there.

My friends and I often meet there for drinks and sometimes supper. Safe, great venue, a few good restaurants, cheap bowling, good cinemas and great coffee at the Vida Cafe. Also has a Barnyard theatre which has good deals for couples- very entertaining. They even host a few festivals like the recent Flavours of India if you into stuff like that. Plus they have an awesome theme park. Not open every day of the week though so make sure you check them out online before you go. All in all a decent entertainment place for the whole family.

So many rides! Phenomenal experience... Most definitely would be going again! Variety of food so when the tummy monster visits you can just go buy food at the various food stalls. Best enjoyed with a group of friends/family
