It's fun on demand at Rainbow's End so how will you play it? With over 20 rides and attractions, there's something for everyone, every day of the year except Christmas Day. The brand new ride, Stratosfear, at Rainbow's End is now open. It is seriously scary with a complete 360 degree rotation to challenge even the most seasoned thrill seeking ride enthusiasts. This ride is a first in the Southern Hemisphere, seats 30 people and with the complete 360 it's one of only 4 worldwide! Spin vertically and horizontally, suspended 18m high on the Power Surge, be trapped in a runaway mine cart, or Fear Fall 18 storeys at 82km/hr! Defy gravity on New Zealand's only corkscrew roller coaster or ride the Log Flume with its dramatic water chute plunge. The brand new Kidz Kingdom is also now open at Rainbow's End! The ultimate place to visit for children 8 years and under and the best birthday venue ever! With Magic and Illusion shows from Andre Vegas on weekends and school holidays, it's definitely a full day of entertainment for everyone at Rainbow's End! Rainbow's End is the best place for weekend fun, kids birthday parties and spending some fun time with your family and friends! You deserve it! You pay one entry price which covers all your rides as many times as you like! If you work that out per ride it is really amazing value for the best day out. Only 20 mins from the CBD we are conveniently located with loads of free parking. Open Daily, only closed Christmas Day. See you soon at Rainbow's End!

You don't come to New Zealand for it's theme park... so adults don't be disappointed when you discover this park is not on par with some of the theme parks you find overseas. Rainbows End is perfect for 8 to 18 year olds. It has...More

The kids loved the park because no one was there and they could go on rides several times. I understand that there is H&S but not having several key rides open is a joke - there were no high winds and if the staff mopped...More

My kids are of the age range 9-2. Most of the rides were too adult for them, such as the roller coasters or spinners. We ended up in the Kids' area where there were bouncy castles and slides and kiddie rides. They did enjoy some...More

Love coming here for the day. Bit higher in price. All of the rides are fun and enjoyable. If you have a slightly weaker stomach I would steer clear of the stratos-fear. Obviously busy on the weekends so try weekdays if you can. The food...More
