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!

Pretty average theme park to be honest however the addition of the new rides have made rainbows end better and the thrill provided is world class!

The website for this park could do with some increased functionality, a basic "how to get here" section with details of what trains to catch etc. and also parking information would have been a great help. The park itself was nice and clean and tidy, the day we went the lines were not too long and we only had to... More

Loved every bit of Rainbows End built loads of memos with my family. The park caters of all types of families big or small... You got to do it....#youngAgenRushes Be in mind it is best to take your own food as it is expensive for food & drinks... Have Fun memories last forever😉 Here's afew pixz

My family of 5 went on a week day so it wasn't too busy which was perfect for us. We were there from opening until close. The stratosfear and free fall are probably the most scariest rides there, eat light on the day so your not left feeling ill afterwards lol we all had a ball!

Well done for taking on Stratosfear and Fearfall - and a good tip about doing them on an empty stomach. Thank you for your review. More

This is a great place for fun once a year (if you can afford it) with the kids. But take your own food (although a hassle to carry around) the food is plastic disgusting oily and over priced. What not put a decent Cafe within such a popular attraction. A bakery style homemade coffee shop would do exceptionally well.

Hi KiwiSummer, thank you for your review and glad you had a good day in the park. We do have two cafes here that serve baked goods as well as salads and other typical cafe items. I'll forward your comments on to the team as maybe we can improve our signage around these to make them more noticeable and easy... More
