What are you going to do during the Easter Weekend?

Four days.

Four days can fly by in a blur, or it can feel like an eternity. It really depends on where you are spending those four days.

The Road Trip:

This starts with the early morning packing of the car during which you will forget something, despite your best efforts. Eventually you manage to get everything (and everyone) in the car…usually an hour after you were hoping to leave.

Then you hit the long road in the anticipation of adventure…but if you’re not stopping because of road works, you’re stopping because someone needs to pee. Then there’s all the arguing over what music is being played over the radio – unless you are a slightly more modern group. That’s when each passenger watches or listens to whatever is on his phone…other than the driver who has to sit in awkward silence for most of the drive.

The Camp Out:

Mosquitos and toilets that you have to dig yourself. Do we have to say anything else?

The Stay At Home:

“I’m boooooooooored!”

These are the words which will undoubtedly ring out through your home around about the 3rd hour that you and the kids have been stuck at home. You’ll probably spend most of your time praying that the WiFi doesn’t fail, because then you are in some real trouble. Maybe you are the kind of parent who has a host of activities ready for the long weekend…but then you better be the kind of parent who is ready to is ready to clean up the mess that comes with all those activities!

The Better Option:

You can make sure that your Easter Weekend feels like a rollercoaster – by getting on one!

Instead of letting the time drag on, bring yourself, your friends and your family to Gold Reef City where they can spend the time racing along on one of our 16 Thrill Rides and 14 Kiddies Rides. Even if they aren’t the type of people who would enjoy the adrenaline rush of our newest ride, The High Flying Maverick, they will still love our retail stores and restaurants.
