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!

This was the first theme park that I've ever been to so I can't compare it with others. But in saying that, my girlfriend and I had a blast. We did the Stratosfear, Fearfall, Invaders, Roller Coaster, Enchanted Forest and Gold Mine rides. Unfortunately we were all "rided out" by then so didn't try any of the others but from... More

Few years since I last visited Rainbows End so I was unsure what to expect but was pleasantly surprised. Plenty of new improvement, visited with group of friends and there was so much rides for us to do. A friendly and fun atmosphere, you'll enjoy it.

I am not sure the exact date we visited but I do know we spent absolutely ages on the Dodgems. We were filming them too so we got ride after ride. There is a whole lot of other stuff here to and it was fun to walk around but I really only can comment on one thing <g>

Good value. We went on about 12 rides each and had a great day. You can bring food in (which is great) but the food options are not too bad or too expensive. Very little non gluten choice though.

My husband and I took our two girls, age 5 and 3 to Rainbows End on a Saturday in January, at the very end of the school holidays. The girls had an absolutely wonderful time, there were plenty of rides for their age group, as well as shows to go to, which they loved as well. Nearly all the staff... More

Stratosphere is the new ride there. Its amazing and a must do. The theme park is very small compared to the ones in the India or England and has limited rides though the facilities are good and the staff is very friendly. They have a separate kids kingdom which is wonderful. TIP: Bring your own food the menu selection is... More

Had an awesome time here. The kids loved the place especially my eight year old. The only down side is the price. Other than that, the staff were great and friendly.

I took the two boys (7 and 9). We all had a really good day, the boys haven't stopped talking about it ever since. The staff were all friendly and helpful. There were very small queues at all of the attractions, we never had to wait long at all. The rides might not quite be world class, but definitely good... More
