Accommodation near Gold Reef City

Gold Reef City is an entertainment complex offering anything and everything you could possibly need to fight boredom. It is situated in Johannesburg, in the suburb of Ormonde, just 8 kilometres from the city centre. It is a 20 minute drive from the OR Tambo International Airport and is easily accessible, even if you're visiting from further afield, due to its proximity to numerous national road links.

Experiences to be had at Gold Reef City are varied and range from the thrill of adrenaline-inducing theme park rides to the slightly different thrills involved in taking to the casino floor. For the wannabe history buffs, Gold Reef City offers you the opportunity to take a good hard look into Johannesburg's mining history and a number of experiences await small children too.

The theme park rides consist of the normal combination of rollercoasters and other rides and each is given a fear factor. The Anaconda, for example has a fear factor of 9, owing to the great heights to which it climbs and upside-down twists you'll be subjected to. The Tower of Terror's rating is 10, as you plunge 50 metres at 100 kilometres an hour. The Raging River Rapids ride scores a comparatively mild 6, and provides an experience akin to bumping your way over a narrow river gorge, occasionally hitting the rocky sides and feeling like an on-coming wave might tip your vessel over. For smaller children there is an animal farmyard and a gaming arcade courtesy of the Magic Company.

Gold Reef City is well known for its mine shaft tours, in which a guide takes you down into a mine and tells you about the past and present conditions of mining. Upon re-surfacing, there is a museum to visit, modelled on the home of an old mining prospector, and you can also try your hand gold-panning among other things.

The complex also houses two theatres, numerous restaurants and take-away facilities and a 24 hour casino.
