Separate obstacle courses are also available for kids and teenagers.

Gold Reef City

Built around the No. 14 shaft of Crown Mines, this city is an authentic reproduction of Johannesburg at the beginning of the 1900s. There are fully furnished miner's houses with original furniture and fittings, including pressed ceilings. The museum exhibits include antique clothing and children's toys, which take the visitor back 100 years to the city that was. A train encircles the park and many shops offer interesting curios. You can also visit the original gold mine in a lift that goes down to 220 meters below the surface. An on site casino is open 24 hours daily.

Constitution Hill

This area of Johannesburg is filled with mixed themes and rife with history. A symbol of South Africa's journey to a deserved freedom, the Constitutional Court sits where the Old Fort Prison Complex used to house both political and common criminals -- names such as Robert Sobukwe, Mahatma Gandhi and Nelson Mandela were once trapped in these walls until its closure in 1983. This once oppressive site has been transformed into a monument of perseverance and justice. Guided and interactive tours are scheduled regularly.


What started out in 1994 as a small concert venue is now one of the most happening entertainment centers in Johannesburg, hosting many of South Africa's jazz legends. In 2003, Bassline was remodeled and renovated and now it can captivate nearly 1000 music fans with top-of-the-range acoustics. It has hosted over 3000 concerts of local and international music artists in the past. Apart from concerts, Bassline can also be rented for corporate functions and rehearsals. For complete details, call ahead or check the website.
