One of the few places where adults and teenagers can have fun. A few thrill rides to choose from. A visit to the old underground gold mine is also a must. Check the rain prediction before you go!

Old mining town of days gone by. Reminds a lot of Pilgrims Rest except that it still works and shops are open. Love the old buildings. Can get a bit overcrowded on a weekend.

Response from Tebogo M | Reviewed this property |
There is public transport. However it is advisable to use private cab companies such as UBER.
Is it better to book before hand or just to buy the tickets there during Decemer? Will the rides still continue even if it rains?
