Gold Reef City - Theme Park, Casino and Museum

Located on the outskirts of South Africa's City of Gold, Johannesburg, Gold Reef City is certainly one of the most popular attractions in Johannesburg.

Gold Reef City is made up of a Theme Park, Apartheid Museum and the Gold Reef City Casino. This combination of entertainment has proven to be successful, as it provides a fun filled day for the entire family.

For adrenaline junkies, the Gold Reef City Theme Park has an assortment of rides to offer, for the hesitant and the fearless. For the entire family to enjoy, the Jozi Express has a maximum speed of 68 kilometers an hour, and a ride time of two minutes, and if terror is what drives you, climb aboard the Anaconda with a maximum speed of 90 kilometers an hour and maximum vertical G’s of 3.5! The Gold Reef City Theme Park rides, have something for everyone.

Gold Reef City is also an educational tool, teaching the history of Johannesburg in a way which has children eager for more. Throughout the park, local and international visitors will learn about, and enjoy South Africa’s cultural heritage through traditional African dance and music.

Another popular attraction in Johannesburg is the 24 hour Gold Reef City Casino. With 1600 slot machines and 50 tables ranging from Blackjack, Roulette, Baccarat and various different kinds of Poker, there is an abundance of entertainment waiting. For the high rollers, the exclusive Salon Prive will cater to your every need. Complete with private gaming facilities, lounge area, 60 slot machines and 8 gaming tables. Recently, Gold Reef City has opened three smoking casinos, namely Saratoga’s with 107 slots, Reef Routine, Manila Poker, Blackjack, Roulette and Baccarat. Barney’s and Market Gardens are only for slot machine players.

In recent years, the Circus was merely a spectator entertainment medium, but no more. In the heart of Gold Reef City, is the Gauteng Circus School. Here, in a safely controlled environment, students can experiment with swinging trapeze, stilt walking, tight wire and trampoline, to name but a few.

With a casino, rides, a museum, Circus training, restaurants, the amphitheatre and even a chapel for those who want to tie the knot, why not just book yourself into either the Casino Hotel or Theme Park Hotel. Then you can enjoy all the Gold Reef City has to offer, at your leisure!
