Gold Reef City
Gold Reef City is an entertainment destination and theme park in Johannesburg South. Located on an old gold mine which has closed down, Gold Reef City is themed around the gold rush era that started in 1886. Employees are turned out in period costumes of the 1880s and the park buildings are themed to match.
The park boasts some of Africa’s tallest thrill rides, as well as milder rides for the whole family. The mine museum promises an exciting history lesson about how gold was discovered and how Johannesburg came to be, as well as an underground mine tour.
Among the other entertainment on offer at Gold Reef City is the Gold Reef City Casino, with regular events being run.
