  • 2 Adults, 12yo & 5yo. Great day out our youngest child just hit the 120cm height mark so he was able to go on most of the rides except a few. The park is well spread out but not too vast, plenty of...  more »
  • First visit to the theme park. This is NZ's only theme park and if you have been other theme parks, keep the expectations low as the park is rather small. The theme park has a small collection of...  more »
  • The new and improved Rainbows end is still living up its iconic name in NZ! Great to see new rides and polished up rides. The weekdays are totally the best times to go as its not that busy (we went...  more »

  • I love this place! Very fair price for a full day out with bumper cars, go karts and rides. Definitely not just for kids.. we had one teenager and 2 adults and stayed until closing time. The low adrenalin rides were awesome and entertaining without feeling sick! The high adrenalin rides are really good. Staff are great, and very attentive to safety which is reassuring.
  • Amazing amusement park. Thanks so much for the friendly services. We really enjoyed being here yesterday. Would definitely visit again soon :)
  • This is like the ONLY theme park in NZ which is why the tickets are probably a bit pricey. I've been here around 10 times and the rides are starting to get a bit boring. The first time I went here I was excited and all but now all that hype is starting to fade away. Since the tickets are so expensive, I think they should make bigger and better rides as it is starting to get boring going on the same rides over and over again. Although the rides are all the same every time, it is still a great place to spend your day.
  • Great day out with the children. Or if u r keen on thrills and stomach churning rides go for it. Go early on a Sunday when good folk are at Church. Last day of school holidays. Perfect. Take a book if you are spectators. Highly recommended at least once a year.
  • I really enjoyed Rainbow's End on the 2 occasions I have visited this year. My favorite ride was the log flume! Riding through the enchanted forest was amazing! Wait times were super short meaning I got to ride most things more than once. Food is fairly priced if you compare it to other tourist attractions.
