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! 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. Open Daily, only closed Christmas Day. See you soon at Rainbow's End!

As a group with young children (8 and under), we loved this place! We have annual passes to Dreamworld, Seaworld and Movieworld on the Gold Coast (Australia) and none of these have such a good area for little kids as Rainbow's End's Kidz Kingdom. Fantastic...More

great place to visit fro young and old, lots to see and do. Choose which rides you want to go on first and get these in as the park can get very busy. Great place to enjoy birthday celebrations

This theme park has all the basics such as bumper cars, boats, log, spinning wheel, kart racing, children's area etc. Nothing special though. And can't compare with Australia or Asia theme park. Definitely worth going for families if grabone has half price deal on.

This is a nice theme park, but it is small on theme park standards. But the price isn't as much as the big ones. To save a bit of money, check for specials online. We did so at the front of the park and saved...More
