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! Open Daily 10am - 5pm, only closed Christmas Day. 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. See you soon at Rainbow's End!

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

For a NZ park it's the best. Nothing like it that I can think of in NZ. But if you have done Disney anywhere in the world your going to compare and it's no Disney. The rides are good, the two teenagers with me enjoyed...More

I understand that New Zealand has a much smaller market for theme parks, and it would probably be impossible to fuel this desire, but the only thing this park is lacking is a bigger roller coaster. The white one there is far too short, not...More

Rainbow's End has many different rides to choose from, but due to the school holidays at the time, the lines were large. The bumper boats was a lot of fun, make sure you learn how to control it, otherwise you'll end up spinning in circles...More
