Last year November decided to take my Family with.It was an amazing 1st day for my nephew to be at Gold Reef City. Enjoyed our good at Wimpy with good service given. Our good didn't take long and was still hot. We enjoyed our rides, the Log, Jozi train, UFO, Anaconda the list is endless. We are going back again end of November 2017. Kids can't wait.

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
