We went to Gold Reef City for the day with our two children ages 7 and 11. Overall the park is great. Clean and well maintained. I was however extremely disappointed in the way the staff working at the kiddies rides treated and spoke to the parents. They were extremely rude and this was not just at one specific ride it was at all of them. You pay a lot of money to enjoy the day and then the staff spoil it with their atritude. I really think Gold Reef City need to address this as I personally will now think twice about visiting the park.

Line up to get in was over a hour long and so too was the line for the rides each around a hour long.
The rides were good but all in all I wouldn’t go back as all day we only managed 3 rides and lunch along with the line to get in. Overrated

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.
