“Something for everyone”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 22, 2012

Certainly worth a visit. The adrenaline junkies will love the rides, there are gentler rides for the younger kids. A good variety of entertainment is on offer with interesting shops and a wide choice of food offerings.

“Mini Disney World, but much better service!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 22, 2012

I loved the antique shops, taking me back to the 1800's The rides were great and the kids loved every second. For the adults we loved the casino, theatres etc. A must to do!

“Gold Reef City”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 20, 2012

This attraction has become very expensive for what you get. A lot of the times most of the rides are out of order. If they are working, Gold Reef City is a fun place to visit, especially if you go on the mine tours/gold tours.

“Fun day”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 19, 2012

I always have a good time here, the only thing that could ruin the experience is when your favourite rides are out of order.

“Always fun for kids of all ages”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 14, 2012

it is fairly expensive to get in for a family (there are 5 of us!), but if you consider all the different rides you can go on which are all included then you do get value for the money spent, and the kids have a ball.
