I firstly had to ask for a bottle of water from the reception. I expected to find it there. The television had bad reception, we couldn't watch it most of the time as it was repeatedly jammed. But I enjoyed the theme park a lot.

The hotel has its own secure parking close to the entrance. Security will direct you to it once you enter Gold Reef City.

There is a swimming pool at the Theme park hotel, but it was green when we were there in September. Also looked like a hangout spot for the staff, with all the hotel chairs standing around there.
