We enjoyed the theme parks and the rides. Will definitely be back to visit. Was a bit busy in the time we visited due to school holidays and the queues to rides were ridiculous.

This is a big theme park with something for everyone. Kids of all ages will enjoy the wide range of rides but it's worth noting that there is a height limit on some. Expect long queues. For some visitors the best bit about the park...More

If you are in South Africa, if you have kids, if the sun is out and you haven't made a trip to Gold Reef City, you need to. Expect long lines everywhere, but thrilling rides none the less..

It is a great place to see what the ``City of Gold'' is about.Prices are over the top for locals but these places are priced to keep the locals away and attract the dollar people.

The attractions are nothing too exciting, so if you're a thrill seeker you won't really find that here. There aren't very many rides either, so you could go on each of them once in half a day.

No need to book your tickets before the time, You can follow the normal queuing system when you enter. The rides continue in the rain but I would guess if a major JOHANNESBURG STORM hits than you will need to run for cover... More
