This is a wonderful place for a day of fun for the whole family. There are some good thrill rides and some tamer options for the not so brave. There is also a good selection of rides and entertainment for smaller kids. The park is quite big but does not feel to crowded when busy. There is also a good fariety of food and refreshment vendors/kiosks available throughout the park. The theme park reflects the old villages that were common in the area over 100 years ago with the gold rush. This is surely a must visit in the Johannesburg area and is good value for money.

We spent a night at The Gold Reef City Theme Park Hotel, after spending a week at the Pilanesberg National Park and The Palace, Sun City.

We loved the hotel at Gold Reef City. The staff were friendly and very well trained.

We had a huge two bedroom suite and the breakfast was super fantastic with great service.

They also offered a free shuttle to the Casino where we had dinner at the Boston Barbeque Restaurant (expensive and maybe average, but worth the visit).

We loved to explore Gold Reef City as you get free access to all the rides and we enjoyed the underground mining tour!

We traveled as a family with 10 people and will most definitely stay here again!

Room Tip: Ground floor corner rooms or two bedroom suites.

The theme park hotel is always a winner. Breakfast is awesome and massive rooms. Love the theme park as well. Highly recommend ....
I do however think that they could stream the check inn service as I waited a long time but was enjoyable non the less

It is a nice get away for the whole family and not to far to drive. The kids love it there and something to keep everybody busy. Mommy and daddy can even slip over to the casino side to go and have some fun...
