Love it. You need the whole day to play. Things are a bit far apart. Need more boards. Had an awesome day

We had staff getogether at Gold Reef City that culminated in an Amazing Race throughout the theme park. The facilities were good, but the rides were not great as many were out of order and others had significant cues.

I love visiting Gold Reef City. I prefer the historical aspect of the park over the rides, as I visited theme parks overseas which trump GRC rides. Nevertheless, I still enjoy going here.

Far too busy, but there again it was in December, had a few overseas visitors, & then weren't really impressed. Very average, but at least the restaurants were organised & we didn't have to wait too long. Ride queues were a long wait for most of the popular rides... An average day out!
