Great for all ages.

I always love a scary ride and Gold Reef City did not disappoint. I saw kids of all ages, and adults, enjoying the park.

This is a must for all. If you are a thrill seeker, food and movie buff, like to chance a little luck Gold Reef definitely has it. I would recommend that people between the ages of 5 + enjoy a piece of history and great tourist spot. Get out, go have fun :)
