Living and breathing 24 hours a day, the property provides the best of everything: from A-list entertainment to award-winning restaurants to the exhilarating theme park to the excitement of the casino. Pure energy, pure indulgence, pure escape, where Jozi comes to life.

Our visitors can also now enjoy a 6 theatre cinema complex, a bowling alley, new fast food court and additional restaurants. If you want to kick back and take it easy, or suit up and get your game face on, find yourself, lose yourself, we have it all.

Gold Reef City Theme Park Heritage Tours

Gold Reef City, Joziís favourite entertainment destination, provides the perfect backdrop for children with inquisitive minds to explore the rich and enchanting history of how Johannesburg came to be and how gold was discovered on the reef, outside of the traditional classroom setting.

The tour starts off with a movie in Rich Beginnings, where old Prospector Jo tells learners how gold was first discovered and Jozi came to be. Our inquisitive minds are then taken on an actual underground Mine Tour, offering the heart-stopping feeling of travelling deep below the surface, feeling the cold air and touching the rough rock surface that held the wealth of a nation. Learners then get to experience a breath-taking gold pour demonstration. This unforgettable, magnificent molten liquid glow inspires the imagination of every child and encourages true creative learning. After the gold pour, children get to pan gold through the mud in cold water, which encapsulates the euphoria of finding a shiny spec of gold in the dirt. And finally, a trip through the museum houses reveals what it was like to be a mine official in the good old days, how children were home schooled without the internet and how families learnt what it meant to 'waste not, want not'. A history lesson has never been this interactive and fun! Learners can also visit the Science exploratory, where they can interact with science.
