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!

While we were up in Auckland for the FIFA Under 20 World Cup we had time to kill and came to Rainbow's End. Being the school term, and midweek, the numbers were very low and as a result queues were either very short or non-existent. While the low numbers meant rides were operating on a scheduled basis (ie 5 or... More

This is a great option for a kids party. There is a good variety of rides outside and a huge kids adventure playground inside. The birthday kids wears a birthday badge and each party gets a host. The party rooms are perfect, good size and immaculately clean as are the bathrooms. Good to bring some of your own table settings... More

8 of us visited Rainbow's End on a pleasant Sunday in the middle of winter (Father's Day as it turned out). The place was amazingly uncrowded - many of the rides we were able to walk straight on as soon as the previous run was over. The longest wait was about 10 minutes for the go-karts. The rides are high... More

Brilliant , although extra large amount of cash is required for all those extra things. Games arcade, photos, side shows, food etc.

They have good selection of rides for the whole family. If you buy tickets make sure you start your day early and go on a sunny day

Been to the Kidz Kingdom section of rainbows end a number of times and it has been consistently fab! Kids have had a ball and the rides are all well suited to our kids age group 2-5. We have always found the lines to the rides to be minimal often not having to wait to get on at all. Great... More

Arrived early to get close carpark and even with booking online still had to line up for ages to get in, check in area was chaos. Had great day on the rides, not much waiting. Mr11 was tall enough to go on most things this time :-)

Although I ended up feeling sick from all the rides I loved rainbows end!! The rides (when I wasn't close to passing out) were so much fun and I had a great time! I also want to mention the man who was in charge of the roller-coaster ride on May 16th (Saturday) was very friendly and helpful.

Great day with the family and friends, it was a shame that the log flume was closed but we had fun on the other rides (although I'm too chicken and was mostly the photographer) Bumper boats, the invader, rollercoaster, gold rush the dodgems and the motion master were all fabulous, also the kids area is great, we were there for...
