Rainbow's End is not the largest theme park in the world; for UK travellers I would compare it to a slightly smaller Chessington. It has all the essential theme park ingredients including adult and kiddy coasters, log flume, dodgems, cars, tower fall, a motion sim...More

If you've been to other theme parks around the world, don't go to RE, it's just... sad. Falling to bits, nothing new in so long, never changes, yet the price gets more expensive every year. New Zealand's ONLY theme park! Oh dear...

Bit pricey for what you get, if they halved their prices it would be worth it. Ok for NZ I suppose though

Took our 4 year old here, enjoyed himself. Tickets very pricey compared to the likes of gold coast theme park packages. Fun place to visit but would break the bank to go often.

I’m saying it’s OK as my daughter enjoyed the rides, and was a good day out for her, however I wasn’t impressed the Staff in the food stalls and Cafe were slow and looked miserable. It’s good for kids and young teenagers.

Love this theme park. Lots of fun for the kids and for adults too. Went on the ‘stratosfear’ and it was amazing! Always come here when I visit Auckland.
