Without a doubt a fantastic place to come. I don't know anywhere else in Africa to go for a theme park that comes close to this. I do suspect the staff of keep rides closed for a while for people not to have continuous rides. If you can come on a slow day it is very enjoyable. Especially if enjoy getting a rush from the free falling feeling. There are rides for the whole family and restaurants all over. Even carnival games some of which are very unlikely to win anything. Some are easy wins
My family and I were booked in at the theme park hotel. Staff were friendly. The hotel room was fine. As for the swimming pool water, well that was green so my husband and kids could not swim in it. My kids were thrilled to go on rides, watch 4D videos etc. However the queues are ridiculously long. Sadly there is no exception for those staying inside the theme park. It would be nice if they could give hotel residents access to the rides an hour before opening to the public. There should be a limitation on the amount of people allowed access daily into the theme park so that everyone gets to make use of the rides instead of standing tirelessly during a heatwave in queues to get on. People are allowed in from around 9am/9:30am but the gates to the rides aren't open so you have to start queuing already which I find really annoying. To top it off they close the gates to rides from around 4pm when the theme park closes @ 5pm. I do understand that this is within the peak season however I seriously hope management does something about this.
Gold Reef City has always been a popular theme park. The roller coaster rides provide your body with an adrenaline rush, making you feel alive. A scream of joy, fear, and exhilaration! The park is very clean and well maintained, and there are plenty of food stalls throughout the park for you to choose from! I would not recommend visiting the park during the holidays because there are far too many people, especially during the December holidays, and you end up standing in line for hours and only being able to ride a few of the rides! Try to go on a Thursday or Friday when it is a little quieter. Then you can truly enjoy the exciting rides! Remember to book online and to wear comfortable shoes. R250pp
Amazing place to visit but I have to say plan in advance for this place, step one arrive very early to catch almost all the busy rides, like Anacondas, the trains and so on, 30min after the place open expect to wait about 30 to 1:30min for a single ride that last a minute. Be prepared to walk a lot, like a lot of walking is required there. The 4D experience was amazing just that they have one movie you can not make a choice, I love the fact that you bring your own food and you can buy food in there too. Online purchase is recommended when you arrive, so if you already know you are going buy ticket online. The part I don’t get is both adult and kids pay R250 even though there are rides the kids can not have access to. I have to say overall it’s ideal place to visit. I enjoyed myself after.
I took my niece on Friday, 8 April 2022, her first time. It was enjoyable. It wasn't too busy. We paid R250 pp, that was a bit steep to be honest. She's 9yrs old, that was a bit much. We had tons of fun and made use of most of the rides. The lady at the ticketing place selling tickets for the Gold pour and the mine tour is a rude and miserable individual, certainly not the kind to be at a theme park and dealing with patrons. The gentleman at the Gold pour exhibition directed us to her to purchase our tickets. He was the most polite, friendliest people, along with the lady who did our tour of the mine. Those two deserve an accolade, they made our experience exceptional.
Amazing day to spend with family and friends. Has enough attractions to keep you busy all day. R250 is the entrance fee, tickets are bought online and this will give you access to all the amazing rides except the Helicopter ride. There are food stalls, restaurants and ice cream parlours. Ample sitting area once your feet get sore or your heart has stopped functioning from the adrenaline pumping rides.
I loved the whole experience, even my friends enjoyed themselves and one of my friends girlfriend was able to enter for free since it was her birthday. The rides were amazing even though I wasn't brave enough to get into some but my girlfriend did and even today she still can't stop talking about the wonderful experience, but to top it all the 4D theater was the best
It was beautiful, second time being there...still have more to ride. My favorite will always be Miners Revenge...also had a chance to experience Storm Chaser...also got to watch a 4D short movie. It was less packed this time...meaning I was able to ride a lot more...best to go there before month end also better to buy your tickets online
Loved the newly added kiddies rides, my son loved them so much because they mimic the older people rides. The park its kept clean an neat despite the huge number of visitors a day. Lastly the stuff looked beautiful in their dulux khaki uniforms
There aren't enough hours in the day... The rides we did manage to get to were amazing, if I could double back I would have but the queues are extremely long. Food offerings aren't that great. But overall a great experience.
