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!

Good family day - Small scale as far as theme parks go but plenty of fun for the kids. Rides were pretty average although Stratosfear does get the adrenalin going.

We went there during the weekday with our 2 kids (2 & 6 years old). Rides are grouped into 10 sessions (some rides are repeated) and Kidz kingdom are pretty much available in all sessions but with limited staffs available. If you are looking for thrill seeking ride, STRATOFEAR (choose the extreme 360), THE INVADER, FEARFALL are a must to... More

We celebrated our daughter's 10th birthday at Rainbows End today with one of their party packages. There were 11 kids in total and a few adults to supervise. From the moment we arrived at the park we were immediately impressed. The welcome at the party area was warm and friendly. Instructions for the day and timing of the party event... More

Lots to do ar Rainbows End. Rides for everyone, even toddlers. Fun place to go for families with fun rides. There is also food for sale there or you can walk across the road to Westfield Manukau mall and have lunch there.

Arrived here for a birthday celebration and couldn't have got a better day! Rain was forecast so maybe that's why their were no long lines waiting for the rides. We arrived promptly at 10.00 and had pre booked our tickets on line (which I thoroughly recommend as we walked literally straight in!). No rain was had until about 5.30pm and... More

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.
