Gold reef City casino smoking section needs more fans or something as exceptionally dingy and smokey. Hot Aces machines are only in this section which is awful especially for a non smoker. The Prive is lovely and non smoking section pleasant.

Great day out with family. Food is good although it can be slow depending on the restaurant. Well priced. Safety of the rides does concern me a bit and there are breakdowns resulting in rescues. 😳

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
