Celebrated my sons 8th birthday with his special friends. What an amazing day and value for money. Everyone loved it and the birthday lunch was delicious. My son's 6 year old friend announced the day his best day EVER!

Entrance fee paid and fun all day to late evening.
From walking around sightseeing, riding the adventure rides, going down the mine shaft and experiencing mining activities to a bit of gambling in the casino. The venue caters for all ages, never a dull moment and no time to get bored here. While you here you can catch a show as well, unfortunately we ran out of time. You might even book into the hotel for the evening to have fun the follow day. The thought did cross our minds, but amidst home was calling. See you next time we in Gauteng again. I loved Gold Reef City.

The washrooms were under renovations and there was no proper sign to state or direct us where to go to another. Then the food court is very small and a man approached us begging not something one would expect in a high end place where the security made us open all our bags before entry and frisked us all. We had KFC because the limited food places had long lines and persons were complaining about their wait time for food after order being almost an hour. The bowling alley inside the facility nearby the food court is fun and inexpensive at 50r pp to bowl. You don't need to rent shoes as they allow you with your socks.
