Ratanga Junction’s Spring Special

Make the most of this spring special

Line up while you still can – Ratanga Junction is giving you a chance to have your last hoorah before they close for good in May 2018. For 10 days, Ratanga Junction is offering a spectacular spring day special where visitors pay R95/p for entry instead of the R170/p standard rate.

This means that from Friday, 29 September until Sunday, 8 October 2017, this beloved theme park will give the same fun at a fraction of the price.

The theme park, which has brought many laughs and screams of glee to visitors, announced that it was closing recently. John Chapman, director of the Rabie Property Group that bought Ratanga in 2005, says that keeping it open is not making business sense. “The oversized facility, lack of consistent demand for a theme park, seasonal weather, expensive maintenance and running cost, as well as the ageing equipment, (have) contributed to an unprofitable facility.”

They are, however, opening the 19-year-old theme park over spring and summer for all locals and fun-lovers to enjoy before they close.

Why not enjoy the rides while they run. Hop on the Cape Cobra to get your pulse racing. The roller coaster will push your hair back as you loop up and down, and wind all around at speeds close to 100km/h. The Slingshot will catapult you up into the air and give you the true Icarus experience. Swing up, up and away on the Congo Queen swing boat or take on, Monkey Falls, one of the highest log rides in the world.

Those wanting tamer rides and parents visiting with smaller children, needn’t worry. There are carousel, paddle boat and ladybug themed ferris wheel rides that cater to all ages. Ratanga even features a Foam Castle, a blow up castle with foam inside, just right for little ones.

What happens to the site after closing? The company is tight-lipped on the details, accept that they plan to develop the site and will, “embrace the existing canals, island and public open space.”

PRICES AND OPENING TIMES FOR RATANGA JUNCTION
Ratanga Junction’s Spring Break Special is enough to entice both the fearless and feeble, brave or hesitant.
