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!

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

As the title says this is a great place for all ages. 30 minute drive from the City centre. Will occupy the entire day for the whole family , you can be sure the kids will sleep well after a day here! Recommend buying tickets on line to save a few dollars and queuing up. Only negative I have would... More

My first visit in over 20 years and this time I took my family. We had a totally wonderful time. My children are 8-12 and in my opinion most of the rides are suitable for this age. Some of the more adventurous rides were beyond us but there were really only a couple of those so we didn't feel we... More

The kids area is great! My 5 year old daughter loved the little thrills of the mini fearfall & kidsroller coaster. I went on the new ride the stratosphere (extreme) it was sooooo awesome - terrifying, but awesome! We went during the school holidays and hardly had to queue at all. We spent all day there.
