“Always exciting to visit Gold Reef City. So much fun, so much to enjoy whether or not you go on the rides, there is the movie theatre, bowling alley, casino, lots of restaurants and sites to see within the theme park.”
Most Loved Entertainment
SA is a melting pot of cultures, history and creativity. This category includes places that bring all of those elements to life, including amusement parks, theatres, museums and art exhibitions. Coming out tops as SA’s Most Loved Local with a resounding win (46%) was Gold Reef City.
"I am beginning to understand that Gold Reef City really is a “city” within the City of Joburg s they really do have an enormous variety of events on offer with a very specific focus on family entertainment."
What’s more fitting than an entertainment park on the grounds of what used to be a gold mine in the City of Gold? Picture 12-hectares of adrenaline and entertainment in the form of a casino complex, theatres and movie houses, a bowling alley, rides AND restaurants for the whole family. That’s what Gold Reef City offers. And to boot, there’s also an underground mine tour which gives a taste of some of Jozi’s history to balance the thrills of the theme park rides.
HOW DOES IT FEEL TO BE A MOST LOVED LOCAL BUSINESS?
"We are very proud. It’s a wonderful achievement and it’s really humbling for us as an entertainment park. It gives us a sense of pride to know that our work has been fruitful and impactful."
