This postcard comes from my pen pal Natalie. I’m adding Gold Reef City to the list of places I’d want her to take me to when I go visit her one day. 😀

Gold Reef City is a large amusement park in Johannesburg, South Africa. Located on an old gold mine, the park is themed around the gold rush on the Witwatersrand. Park staff wear period costumes of the 1880s, and the buildings on the park are designed to mimic the same period. There is a museum dedicated to gold mining on the grounds where it is possible to see a gold-containing ore vein and see how real gold is poured into barrels.

There are many attractions at Gold Reef City, not the least of which are water rides and roller coasters. Gold Reef City is located to the south of the Central Business District. It is also the site of the Apartheid Museum.
