Great theme park. Lots of rides at various levels of intensity, catering for small children and families, right through those seeking that thrilling adrenaline rush. Experience the rich history of the gold mine, traditional dancing and even a petting zoo. Lots of great food options. A great day out. Wear comfortable shoes, you'll be walking a lot, and apply sun screen liberally.
Place to be for all ages. Amount of people that visit the place are the testimony that it is indeed a place to take out your kids to. Variety of activities which includes adrenaline rush activities and family activities all in one place. Rich history behind the place. The place offers fast food, snacks and refreshments. Enough parking space, helpful staff, well informed and knowledgeable. If you are a daring person you should try the adrenaline rush games to mention few, Anaconda and Golden loop. Very energetic and entertaining staff(dancers). More signage of directions would make it more simple to roam around.
