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!

My husband and I took our girls, aged 6 and 4, to Rainbows End again these school holidays. It was another great day out - my oldest was tall enough (120cm) to go on some of bigger rides, the rollercoaster, the bumper boats, the Invader, and the Fear Fall, which she really enjoyed. The Kidz Kingdom area is great, the... More

Gorgeous day, very short queues, great food, wonderful service. All rides taken only missed out on second ride on water bumpers as queue was to long apart from this everything was perfect.

What fun, wish we had more time, loved most of the rides, took the scary one first or I am sure it wouldn't have happened (didn't realise what we were in for!!)

A great family day out. Expensive if your not doing many rides. Our boys aged 8 and 9 years thoroughly enjoyed it. Waste of time if your kids aren't tall enough as it's expensive. Food...there wasn't very many choices and what choices there were wasn't much. Not many healthy or appealing options. Hot dogs, burgers and chips was the most... More

Met our cousins at the park. Our son is five and my cousins kids are 14&15. Some things that the 5 year old couldn't do. Still lots to keep him occupied. Kids kingdom a little to young for our son. Loved family go carts and log flume. Staff very nice and friendly. Last time I was at the park would... More

We visited here whilst in Auckland. The rides are a little outdated but fun and this is the only park of sorts in N.Z. A must if you have kids. Some very scary rides and caters to the whole family. The food is expensive but in places like this that's always the case. It has a kids section and rides... More

A review is somewhat pointless as this is the only real theme park in New Zealand, but for the price, it's a good day out. Really good value is the "Night Riders" evening openings, which can be tacked onto a day ticket for only a minimal surcharge. There is a good variety of rides, although the total number isn't huge.... More

Rainbows End is great fun for the whole family. Having been there 4-5 times (My daughter loves this place) I know most of the rides and how they all run. I love the food, great service, but I think they need more rides. We normally end up on the same rides repetitively, so I think a change would be nice.... More

I’m a local and I hadn’t been to Rainbows End for 18 years, I loved how I could take my now 3.5 year old daughter and show her all the rides that were still there when ‘Mummy was a little girl’. We enjoyed all the rides, magic shows and loved dancing along with Princess Sapphire and Enzo the cheeky wizard.... More
