A glitzy affair it most definitely was – as celebrities, media, and industry moguls mingled together to celebrate the re-launch of Gold Reef City. As mentioned last night, people still flock to the City to discover their fortune in the same way as they did in yesteryear when Johannesburg was the place to come to discover Gold. This dream continues…

A few years back as the editor of Brides  Essence Magazine, I enjoyed experiencing Gold Reef City as a ‘pretend’ bride…enjoying the horse & carriage ride and a night in the hotel, however since then it has been a place that my children are regularly begging to frequent, and I have mostly thought of it as a theme park.

Not being a gambling person, I could beg to question why I would visit Gold Reef City, well after last night I am looking forward to bringing my family to experience first hand this refurbished and exciting destination.

Gold Reef City has been elevated to a World Class entertainment destination and if last nights launch was anything to go by, then a fabulous experience awaits tourists and locals alike. The South of Johannesburg can be proud – Gold Reef City now offers a very unique experience with its Apartheid Museum, Casino, opulent Theatre, Victorian Train Station themed movie house with six theatres, 10 pin bowling, games arcade and various restaurants.

Watch this space for my personal experience…coming soon!
