Gold Reef City Theme Park Heaps on Easter Entertainment
Gold Reef City Theme Park, Jozi’s leading destination for family entertainment, offers something for everyone this Easter holiday with its winning combination of fun, fantasy, and history.
From traditional mine dancing to Jozi’s Story Of Gold, from choreographed bird shows to street entertainers, and from adrenalin-pumping rides to Africa’s only 4D theatre, the Theme Park offers a variety of attractions that no other venue in Africa can match. That’s without even mentioning the dazzling choice of restaurants and shops that line the streets of Gold Reef City Theme Park, including a brand new Milky Lane and Mugg & Bean.
Visitors to the park can look forward to some special Easter treats, including The Missing Baker’s Man Hunt scheduled for Easter Sunday, 8th of April, at Gold Reef City Theme Park. The popular Odin 4D theatre, meanwhile, debuts the brand new Haunted Mine Ride just in time for the holidays. The Haunted Mine Ride is a four-dimensional cinematic experience that puts the audience in the centre of an action-packed and suspenseful mystery.
The Theme Park has also stacked up some great street and outdoor entertainment for the holidays, ranging from three daily tribal shows in the Golden Arena, through to traditional mine dancing at Gemstone World.
Circus clown, Marcello DiLello, will be doing his magic tricks throughout the day in the Town Square, while kids will also revel in Exor’s unique magic and illusions, as well as kids’ magic and juggling hosted by Jacques Marais and Sergio.
Gold Reef City has a brand new choreographed bird show starting in time for the holiday – an interactive Tropical Island Paradise show presented in the Golden Arena. New cast members such as a beautiful Toucan, King Vulture and Hornbill will put on a colourful aerial display against a tropical backdrop and some vibey island music.
During the school holidays (Saturday, 24th of March to Tuesday, 10th of April), don’t miss The Town Square Spectacular at 12h45, the street parade at 14h00 everyday and the brand new children’s street pantomime, Little Red and Goldie Locks at 12h00 and 13h15 on the Wimpy Stage.
Of course, Gold Reef City Theme Park is justifiably famous for an awesome selection of rides that range from the tame to the truly terrifying. Visitors to the park can enjoy their favourite rides such as the UFO, Anaconda, Golden Loop, Wave Swing, and Carousel. The newly relaunched Dream Boat, is a unique and thrilling ride with a complete 360° rotation to both the left and the right – it is bound to make anyone scream.
The heart-stopping Tower of Terror ride is also back – and those who would dare to ride it are advised to bring a change of underwear for the scariest ride in Africa. The Theme Park spent more than R10 million revamping the Tower of Terror to create a ride that even the toughest adrenalin junkie will walk away from with whitened hair, pounding heart and knocking knees.
Jozi’s Story of Gold – an educational yet highly entertaining tour – brings the Theme Park’s historical attractions together in an interactive and informative package. This is an opportunity to go back in time and touch history, with a first-hand look at life in the old mining town of Johannesburg.
The Theme Park is open from 9h30 to 17h00 every day during the Gauteng school holidays. General admission fee to Gold Reef City Theme Park is R100 per person for all rides, shows and other exhibits but excludes Jozi’s Story of Gold. Children under the height of 1,2 metres, including pre-school children, only pay R50 each.
