Ratanga Junction Open for the Summer Season

The home of the Cobra offers thrill seekers one last ride.

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. From Friday, 24 November 2017 until Tuesday, 16 January 2018, Cape Town’s only theme park is opening for a few weeks of summer fun and exhilaration.

Ratanga Junction, which has brought many laughs and screams of glee to visitors, announced that it was closing a few months ago. John Chapman, director of the Rabie Property Group that bought the entertainment venue 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 the summer for all locals and fun-lovers to enjoy before they close.

Hop on the Cobra to get your pulse racing and your body shaking! 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 the 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 rides, paddle boat trips, and lady bug-themed ferris wheel adventures 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, except 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

Full Adventurers (over 1.3m tall) pay R179/p to enter the theme park while Mini Adventurers (under 1.3m tall) gain access for R95/p. Cape Town’s balmy weather is inviting enough to draw anyone outdoors. That’s why Ratanga Junction is opening from Friday, 24 November 2017 until Tuesday, 16 January 2018 (except 25 December 2017). Visitors can buy tickets at the gate or by emailing [email protected]. The theme park opens at 10am so you can indulge in a full day of activities. For more information call +27 (0)21 550 8504 or email [email protected]
