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!

A bit expensive but I always have fun here. Obviously not as big or good as some of the arks I've beng to overseas (Disneyland. Knotts, Six Flags, SeaWorld, Dreamworld etc) but you cant expect that with a small country like ours.

The park was good, had quite a few rides and attraction. Could do more with new rides, as I know the rides outdated. Place is clean and crew was friendly and kind. Overall the park need facelift of new rides, need more thrill factor.

We took our 8yo and 4.5yo girls here for the day. We entered at 10.00am and left at 4.00pm! The price was GREAT value and we all had a fantastic time. The rides were fun for both of the girls (and we could also go with them on a few of them which was fun). They put on a magic... More

Great fun and quick lines. Almost caught out by hitting the big rides in a row, but my stomach caught up eventually. Lots of options at all levels of challenge, but especially love the scare of stratosfear. Eventually I'll keep my eyes open. Friendly and clear staff. Wish the karts were faster but enjoyed anyway.

As it's still school holidays me and my family decided to go on a week day. Due to the fact it was a week day a ride schedule was given to show which rides were available during the time slots. Unfortunately due to the lack of people in the theme park that particular day most rides started to shut down... More

Hi Rose, thank you for your review. Weekends, school holidays and Night Rides are the most popular times for guests to visit so if you are looking for a busy, high energy environment then we'd recommend visiting again during one of those times to enjoy the fast-paced atmosphere. Monday to Friday during school term we do have a timetable and... More

I always find Kids Kingdom to be clean and safe for kids of all ages. Staff are usually very helpful and friendly. You do get the odd assistant who looks like they've had a hard night and would rather be somewhere else. Food is pretty basic, the usual fast food for kids. Entry fee is a bit pricey for what...
