Gold Reef City: The Best Entertainment Spot To Be


Gold Reef City prides itself on being Johannesburg’s favourite entertainment destination, which is why it comes as no surprise that it managed to scoop a spot in Santam’s Annual Most Loved Local Campaign.

The Casino and Theme Park claimed first place in the entertainment category as South Africa’s Most Loved Local Entertainment spot in Santam’s Annual Most Loved Local Campaign.

The people of South Africa have spoken, and Gold Reef City won by an astounding 46%. With service, products and value for money topping the reasons people fall in love with business the entertainment hub’s offering set it apart.

Casino Complex

Gold Reef City has something for everyone – regardless of age. The casino complex is constantly alive, brimming with excitement and energy.

From thrilling gaming on the casino floor to world-class stage productions at The Lyric, and the latest blockbusters in the Victorian train station-themed cinema complex, Gold Reef City is an entertainment lover’s dream.

The action-packed ten-pin bowling alley is a regular spot for teens and adults with a healthy competitive spirit.

There is also an exciting variety of mouth-watering meals available at the restaurants and fast-food outlets.

Theme Park

The exhilarating theme park includes 18 thrill rides, 13 dedicated rides for the kiddies, Jump City Trampoline Park, the only authentic underground mine tour in Johannesburg and other spectacular attractions.

This is a destination of choice for most overseas travellers as the park is known far and wide for its intense offering of bucket list adventures.

If you don’t want the fun to end, you can stay over for the night, or bring the kids for a family holiday.

Stay at the award-winning Gold Reef City Theme Park Hotel or Southern Sun Gold Reef City – both are an indulgence for children and adults alike. 

Most Loved Local Business

The entertainment hub was one of twelve local business honoured with the title of most loved.

Mokaedi Dilotsotlhe, Chief Marketing Officer at Santam, who is responsible for the research, says the company wanted to celebrate those businesses getting it right, and allow others to learn from them.

“The research has strongly highlighted our vibrant and colourful business sector. There are so many amazing success stories. We truly hope our report will motivate more people to go into business or to lift their venture to the next level.”
