  • Honestly it was okay, unfortunately our group was very keen for the stratosfear only to find out when we got there that it was closed for the week for maintenance, which I understand needs to happen b...  more »
  • Pretty disappointing place, especially if you have been to any other theme park in the world. It's pretty outdated. My 6 year old son had fun but he didn't have to get his wallet out. The carnival gam...  more »
  • Kids had fun. Price was not bad either but book and pay online as it is a lot cheaper. No matter how many times you go here still have fun. Staff were friendly.  more »

  • Great place to spend the whole day. Lots of fun. A mixture of the older iconic rides and newer thrill rides. Also a large arcade. A variety of things to do for all ages. Great that there is separate parts of the park for the under 7's (kids kingdom) and the main park for everybody, gives you a choice as to what you want to do and what you want to pay for. Lots of places to get food, unfortunately no halal or kosher options but still a great day out.
  • It’s a great place to have fun with kids. I think it should be less expensive when you go with family. There is another important thing I’ve noticed last night event that there are no toilet facilities outside the booking counter especially when you host late night events and lot of queues are expected. Luckily my niece saved by one of their staff member. Bottom line great expensive place with nice staff.
  • I've been to Rainbows End numerous times in my short life. The rides are mostly negligible if your goal is to get the greatest adrenaline rush possible. The whole park is directed heavily towards young, young children. If you're not a new family, don't bother. Invader is fun though.
  • It's definitely getting better but oh my life, it's very very pricey. The stratosphere ride is hands down the best thrill ride there. Lines are long on the whole and the rides are quite short. In saying this though, it's always a bit of fun. Parking is plentiful and you aren't forced to eat hotdogs, ice creams, chips etc. if you don't want to. Rainbows End also bend over backwards for you if you would like to hold a corporate event there. They have a wonderful and flexible event team.
  • It's a good place to go, especially if you have kids. Easy a day with kids, for adults you can get around the whole park in a few hours. Enjoyable
