Grand West is a monumental new entertainment centre, some 20 minutes away from the city centre in the suburb of Goodwood. It belongs to the Sun International chain.
The centre piece of this complex is a Victorian style casino with 66 tables. American Roulette, Blackjack, Poker, Punto Banco, African Express and Diamond Rush are some of the games being played here. In addition, there are 1750 slot machines to be operated with a smartcard (not with coins). There are daily jackpots with up to 2 million Rand to be won. For the high-end player there is a Salon Privé available, open daily for 24 hours.
Part of the complex is a 4-star hotel, numerous restaurants, bistros, pubs, cinemas, a live jazz venue and a huge ice-skating arena. Video game machines, merry-go-rounds, rollercoasters and a real go-cart track are available for the entertainment of children and for the very tiny ones, there is even a crêche.
Grand West can be accessed from the N2 freeway. The turn-off "Vanguard Drive" is well signposted.
