Easter Egg-citement!

What are you up to over the long Easter weekend? If you have no idea what to get up to with the family, then be sure not to miss out on all the egg-citement at Carnival City. The outdoor Pocket Park will be a hive of activity for the kids from 19 to 22 April 2019.  Expect special visits from the Easter Bunny, plenty of arts and crafts, face painting and of course, an egg hunt. The Easter egg-tivities will take place from 12:00 to 17:00 daily and are all FREE to enjoy (including the Easter egg hunt at 12:00 and 15:00 on Easter Sunday, 21 April 2019).

Carnival City’s Pocket Park is an exciting, grassed children’s outdoor play area complete with modern climbing frames. The brightly coloured, circling structures feature obstacles for children to climb and slides to zoom down while parents take a breather on one of the benches. There is no cost to climb and play in the Pocket Park.

Carnival City

There's More Fun!

Other family friendly entertainment to enjoy at Carnival City include laser games at the Lazer Zone, Go-Karting on a simulated Grand Prix circuit, arcade games at the Magic Company, the latest movies at Ster-Kinekor and ten pin bowling. Outdoor activities include rides for smaller children and carnival stalls, where youngsters can take a stab at winning a few cool prizes. There's plenty to keep the little ones entertained at Carnival City!

Easter Feasting

After all the Easter fun, families can relax and enjoy a hearty meal at Carnival City’s Thunder Eagle Spur or Panarottis. The restaurants share a large kids’ play area, featuring play modulars and plenty of entertainment. The new RocoMamas is another enticing option for hungry guests. Famous for their meaty smashburgers, mofo wings and seriously messy ribs, RocoMamas also has a great vibe.

Don't Miss The Joyous Celebration!

A highlight over the Easter weekend entertainment lineup are performances by South Africa’s biggest and best loved gospel ensembles at the MTN Joyous Celebration at the Big Top Arena. These shows are part of their nationwide MTN Joyous Celebration Tour 23. Tickets are available at Computicket.

This venue, as the name suggests, is based on a carnival theme. The building is shaped like a huge tent with lights hanging around it, which makes the scene shine bright like a star. This is quite fitting, as it is Brakpan's star. If you are around the Brakpan and Boksburg border, it can be seen all around like a giant lighthouse imploring you to draw near. The carnival theme is completed with giant clown murals, fantastical carnival scenes painted along the walls, carousal styled bars and, you guessed it, an actual carnival.

Outside, the miniature carnival features all the classic games of skill and chance that would win you a giant teddy bear. There are also several rides for children, like the enormous lollipop merry-go-round, among others. This outside area also features a play-ground with slides and swings for less adventurous children. But the main attraction is the go-karting. That's right, Carnival City has go-karting — something the other casinos definitely don't have. The only drawback is that it's only for the kids, not adults.

Go Karting

Adults do have their own entertainment options here too. It is a casino, after all, and was made for gambling. And with the 57 table games, which includes the classic American roulette, poker and black jack, gambling you shall do. This does not even mention all the slot machines they have. Also, as mentioned above, they have a bar that looks like a carousal — the perfect place to get something to treat those shot nerves or to celebrate any winnings if it's been your lucky night. And your kids will be taken care of, even if the carnival is not their thing. The younger kids can hang out at the Kidzone Créche while the older kids can head on over to the arcade.

Casino

The arcade here is certainly the best I have ever seen. Most of these gaming facilities in Joburg are small-scaled with barely enough room to move. To top that, many of the machines aren't even functioning. And you always spend all your tokens while waiting for that one family to stop hogging the only air hockey table. Not at Carnival City's Arcade. Here, there is plenty or room and plenty of games from the classic whack-a-crocodile to the latest zombie killing technology. They even have more than one air hockey table so everyone can get a chance at swiping those pucks. And because all of this isn't enough, they decided to throw in a Laser Tag Zone. Just in case killing zombies, crocodiles and dueling your friends in an epic air hockey game wasn't enough.

Arcade

Fighting zombies, racing go-karts and winning black jack is bound to burn a hole in your stomach. You'll be able to fill those hungry bellies at any one of the 13 restaurants or the food court. Not sure what to get? No worries! Among others, they have American, Asian, Italian, and Portuguese choices on hand, as well as a store dedicated to satisfying that sweet tooth for dessert. And if you feel like a little family fun time after all of this, head on over to the cinema and catch a movie or have a relaxed ten pin bowling match.

What Is It?
