The glittering launch event of the new and improved Gold Reef City took place in November, which was attended by Jozi’s most glamorous celebrities, key media, and leaders of the gaming and hospitality industry. The refurbishment and expansion of one of South Africa’s national tourist treasures has elevated its status to a diverse, world-class entertainment destination for the whole family!
There is nowhere else in South Africa where entertainment seekers and families can experience a world-class theme park, the historical significance of the Apartheid Museum, enjoy the thrill of a casino, an opulent theatre, the family-friendly entertainment value of movies, 10-pin bowling, a games arcade and a diverse selection of restaurants in one place. Yet Gold Reef City brings all of these aspects together, making it Joburg’s premier entertainment destination.
What To Expect At The New And Improved Gold Reef City
The refurbishment of this family-friendly destination includes everything from dining and something fun for the kids, to world-class gaming experiences and amazing movie viewing!
Additions to this premier entertainment destination include several new and upgraded restaurants, such as the stylish Back o’ the Moon, which has had a total revamp and offers accessible upmarket dining. The property now also offers a Vigour & Verve restaurant, a Spur Steak Ranch, the family buffet restaurant, Boston BBQ, Calisto’s Portuguese Restaurant, The Raj Indian Restaurant, Ocean Basket, Vida e Caffé and Col Cacchio Pizzeria, as well as a food court.
Something For The Kids
To keep the young (and young at heart) entertained, the Magic Company has a new addition of a 12-lane bowling alley, and let’s not forget to mention cinemas. One of the most spectacular new additions to Gold Reef City is Tsogo Sun’s movie franchise, Movies@Gold Reef City, featuring a cinema complex themed as a Victorian train station! The cinema houses six theatres with a total of
1 048 seats, four of which have 3D capability, giving Gold reef City visitors a variety of cinematic options to choose from. The largest theatre is Platform 2, called Grand Central, which has 322 seats. And Platform 3, which seats 84, boasts luxurious leather seats and a bar, making it an ideal venue for intimate corporate functions and exclusive VIP events.
The new Salon Privé offers an opulent gaming ambience with its own private entrances, playing areas, baccarat room, internet and cash desk facilities, lobby and VIP desk, as well as an exclusive lounge.
Kaya FM Is In The House!
And, last but not least, in keeping with Tsogo Sun’s philosophy of establishing strategic partnerships with local radio stations and taking the opportunity to bring radio alive within its entertainment destinations, a Kaya FM satellite studio is now also housed in Gold Reef City.
Gold Reef City has a long history of providing guests with a unique combination of educational, historical and leisure attractions. This great heritage has been enhanced with additional new facilities, to offer visitors an even wider range of experiences than ever before. Gold Reef City is just the place to connect with our history, to do business, to be entertained or to spend a day getting the adrenaline pumping!
Just 8km from the CBD, 8km from Soweto, 15km from Sandton and 25km from the O.R. Tambo International Airport, Gold Reef City is easily accessible and convenient.
