Gold Reef City

Gold Reef City is synonymous with fun and games. Come and have some fun!  Gold Reef City, an amusement park in the South of Johannesburg, is located on an old gold mine which closed in 1971.  The park is themed around the gold rush that started in 1886 on the then Witwatersrand, now Gauteng.  Staff at this venue wear period costumes of the 1880s, with all the buildings on the park being designed to mimic the same period. 

The park includes a museum dedicated to gold mining where you not only get to hold a bar of gold but adventure deep into the bowls of the Earth to view a gold-containing ore vein and the underworld of mining days gone by. All this at affordable gold reef city prices.

With many attractions available, Gold Reef City keeps on giving, and people keep on coming back.  Attractions include water rides and roller coasters as well as hotels and restaurants and the live shows of Idols South Africa which are filmed in the "Hippodrome", a large auditorium based in the park.
