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!

Expensive but fun, the food was extremely expensive. Long queues during the school holidays could have been sped up by maximising seating on each ride

We went last weekend. Love it, so many rides for all ages. They also had entertainment in the main area.magic/illusion show, lolly scramble they get kids to join in on stage. Good variety of eating places there to. Felt like a big kid.

So many activities for my 7, 12 and 13 years olds. It showered a few times and wasn't busy so there were no queues and we had multiple gos on most rides. Had an amazing day.

We went on a drizzly morning and unfortunately couldn't wait for the go-cart tracks to open. However we thoroughly enjoyed all of the other rides. Lines were extremely short and we were able to just stay on the ride for another turn. Most staff were friendly and it was an enjoyable experience.

This is a definite when visiting Auckland. Definitely something we would do again, we had a blast. There is so much to do, keeps you busy for a minimum of 4 hours, but could easily be there from open to close.

I took my 9 and 11 year old on a Tuesday. They said the rides run to a timetable, so they are not operating all the time, well the timetable was a joke. The rides did not stick to the timetable and we walked around a lot of the day just trying to find a ride going, especially at lunchtime... More

Hi Bex, thank you for your review and it's good to hear that your kids had fun on the rides, especially the Log Flume and Gold Rush. We do operate on a timetable with ride sessions mid-week during school term where most rides run on alternate sessions, however the Log Flume and Gold Rush do have a continuous schedule from...

We took our 6 year old son to Rainbows end and in July 2016. Our son was unable to go on most rides being under the 150cm - 130cm. Because we (Mum & Dad) couldn't leave him alone to go on rides, we were also limited to about 4 rides. The little kiddies rides did not cut if for our... More

We went as a group and couldn't believe that spectators had to pay an entry fee. It was expensive to ride, expensive to watch and it's not like the rides were really worth it. Definitely better to visit as a kid.
