Gold reef city is one of Johannesburg most popular attractions for International and locals visitors alike. The site where Gold Reef City is situated is an old Gold mine and it has been modelled to resemble the gold rush and the gold rich history. Gold Reef City is actually a combination of a Theme Park and a Life Museum of a Victorian Architecture depicting the story of Gold. THEME PARK RIDES Gold reef City has variety of Thrill rides you can choose from when you arrive at the park. Popular fastest Thrill rides you can participate on: Anaconda inverted roller coaster, Golden loop shuttle roller coaster, Jozi Express roller coaster(This coaster will move you through tree tops,mine dumps and if you are brave enough to open your eyes you will have a better view of Johannesburg CBD),Miner’s revenge,River rage rapids, Run away Train, Storm Chaser,High Flying Maverick,Tower of terror (High speed roller coaster with a vertical drop into the old mine shaft) These rides will turn your world upside down literary JOZI STORY OF GOLD HERITAGE TOUR The Virtual tour will give you an experience of how prospectors panned Gold/separated gold particles from soil in a freezing cold water by hand. The story of Gold doesn’t get more real than descending 75 meters underground to discover the riches of South Africa’s history on an underground mine tour or witnessing the magnificent glow of a live gold pour! You also visit the Historical Victorian homes on the ground. The original mine manager's residence houses the authentic bioscope dedicated to show case how life was during this fascinating period of South African history.
