From the lift down the 226 metre deep old mine shaft to the wildest modern playground ride, from good theatre to gambling, Gold Reef City gives an insight into Johannesburg's history and its fast lane personality which has persisted from its gold rush days. Nowhere in the country can you experience the city's history more realistically than on the interactive "Jozi's Story of Gold" Heritage Tour, which includes visiting historical mining homes, watching a gold pour and panning for gold. Alternatively, Gold Reef offers a plethora of restaurants, rides and gambling opportunities to keep you entertained 24-7.
