Owner description: 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!

“Kidz Kingdom birthday party”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2013

Our daughter had her 5th birthday at kids kingdom.
Was fantastic ,great value for money,
Staff were all really friendly and nothing was a problem.
Premises were very clean and quality of food was good.
The rides were great ,perfect for this age, and good to see the staff were strict on not letting older kids on rides so the little ones had a fair go.
Would highly recommend this as a hassle free party venue

“Great day out for all the family”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2013

Small by international theme park standards but up there in terms of quality. Good selection of rides for thrill seekers and for the less adventurous !! All rides are open at weekends but during the week, out of season the rides operate in rotation. Not a problem though - when one closes others open. The advantage is that, if you keep an eye on the programme, you can usually beat the queues!! Spent the whole day there and had a great time - would definitely recommend a visit!

“First visit to the new Kidz Kingdom”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013

our first visit to the new Kidz Kingdom with a couple of todlers was heaps of fun. A morning is enough for them to enjoy everything at least twice. Only issue we had was that staff did not control line jumpers and we had a couple of instances where we had to complain before anything was done.

Overall it was a fun experience for the little ones.

“Fun day out”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2013

We had a fun day out at the park, our 10yo enjoyed all the rides, and the under 5s enjoyed the kids kingdom, we managed to get discounted tickets through one of the email coupons, so the price was right for us, but the standard prices seems very high for what you get.

Because we home school we were also able to go on a school day, this meant that some of the rides were on a rotation, but that didn't matter because there were no queues to wait in and we just kept an eye on the times and did the rides that were open at the correct times. The kids kingdom was a little slower they would do a ride for you if you wanted to, but with a few other people there and sometimes only one staff member it did mean a few waits.

Overall it was a nice day out, but probably not something we would do every year.

“Average...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2013

I have been to Rainbows End about 5 times in my life, and each time it seems to get more average but more pricey. I don't think the price is worth it, and last time I went I was disappointed to find the one ride I really wanted to go on wasn't going. If you go during the school week, rides run by a timetable which is frustrating as you have to plan your day around the times (and sometimes queues can be quite long with school visits). On weekends and school holidays all rides operate at all hours, however some lines can get up to 30 minutes long. I feel the place is getting tired and in desperate need of a revamp.
