I was in South Africa for my sister's wedding so I thought whilst I was there I had to see what Gold Reef City was all about.
I started the day battling through the Johannesburg traffic which meant a 20 min journey took just over an hour, we got there just after 11.
Since I was there with my Family my Mum and Dad said they were coming too, more the merrier in my opinion.
Gold Reef City is a nice small family park that appears to be freshening up here and there.
The main attraction for this park is the refurbished Tower of Terror, A self made Dive coaster with restraints that makes your average S.L.C. look comfortable, and it gives you a serious donkey kick. There is also a Zierer coaster called Jozi Express, it is ok nothing special but not too bad either.
Anaconda is a Giovanola suspended that I was curious about but it was closed for maintenance and looks like it has had a new coat of paint. The final credit is the Golden Loop, a Schwarzkopf Shuttle Loop which is, in my opinion, is the best coaster in the park, it does what it says on the tin.
Well on to some photo's.
The entrance, It serves it's purpose
First up was Anaconda.
But it was closed for maintenance.
For those who like the loops
A Zierer coaster.
Again for the fans.
Just remember to Brace!
The Main Attraction
Well That's their opinion anyway.
Not many others though
Although there weren't many people in the park.
No, no one there.
Building work was going on, a re-design apparently.
Can you tell what it is yet?
This ride was just as good as this photo, don't bother.
Of coarse there were other rides but this is the only one I took a photo of even though I didn't go on it.
People, there are actually people here.
The furies were out in force, we ran after this photo as they started to come towards us.
More to come.
I have always wanted to go to this park for some reason. I am really
curious about Anaconda and that wicked helix around the rock. It looks
like a very intense ride. It kinda reminds me of B:TR with the two vertical
loops and a zero-g.
