Gold Reef City Reviews
This is the best amusement park I have been to , so many rides and it has many thrilling things to do , I highly suggest visiting the park more »
Being a geology nerd, going down into the old mine was fascinating!! It is amazing to think what humans will do to get something shiny. And these miners are the bravest people to do what they do... more »
Clean, well maintained, friendly helpful staff. Innovative by using adrenaline cool down stations. Lots of food stall accessible all around the park. Many rides to fill the day. Still has the historical feel and information about the mining era keeping it proudly South African. Great value for money.
Ha an amazing time. Some rides need a little attention and repair, but all in all a wonderful experience! The anaconda and golden loop are certainly the best thrill rides Gold Reef City has to offer. Great place for a group event and the kiddies section is just as fun. Love all the restaurant options as well as the historical section such as the train and houses to visit and walk through
