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!

Getting a bit squeezed for space but some great rides. A clean, loud and happy place. The roller-coasters great especially if you can keep your eyes open and watch others. The river ride is relaxing and memorable then thrilling. The 3d cinema . . . don't stand there with you hands in your pockets - your bound to face plant... More

Went to Rainbow's End with some friends while visiting Auckland. It was a great day out, went on all the rides and the food was reasonably priced. We went late in the day so it was quite busy, so maybe best to go earlier.

Nice perfect hot weather helped to make us feellike running around trying rides under the sun. Sadly no water cooler can be found. In such hot weather it is hard to be on the long queue to get water. Hope the park will install the water cooler soon. Other than that, the rides are fantastic, long queue but satisfactory rides.

We hadn't been here for a long time. I found it a little boring and not something we could of done all day because without taking children there is only so much for you to do. We saw there was heaps of childrens things to see so may this would be better for people with children. We loved the motion... More

Came on a Tuesday during term time so the park was being run on a schedule which we understood at the time and there was no real problem following which rides were open when. My 9 and 11 year old boys had a amazing time and the adults in the group just realised that the older you get the less... More

Had a great day with my son, did all the rides! Good value for money, some awesome thrill rides as well as rides aimed at the slower end and for kids! Plenty of food options, lockers abound and the staff were really friendly. Would go back in a heart-beat.

We went midweek, which meant the park runs a timetable for when the different rides our open, with the staff shuffling around to a new ride when necessary. I though this made sense to be honest and it worked well. The ride themselves are ok, with something for everyone, but we just felt the place looked a little tired and... More
