It's a great family day out. Some of the rides could do with a coat of paint and a good clean. Some certainly need maintenance, but in general it's fun.

My first visit to Gold Reef City was about 15 years ago. It was a great experience with lots to see and do. With my next visit the place deteriorated and was not 50% of what it used t be. To sure if it is better again.

The hotel was themed around the early 1900s gold rush. Decorations are interesting and the hotel is very safe and contained. Bowling alleys, movie theaters, food for every pallet. Families could easily be here with plenty to do. Next door within walking is a theme park and The apartheid museum. Red bus tour was great and it picks up and drops off here.

We went here for lunch but the buffet meal was disappointing. Average food, nothing really to write home about or that stands out.
