Explore Rainbow’s End
Rainbow’s End is every Kiwi child’s dream on a trip to Auckland.
As New Zealand’s largest and most impressive theme park, Rainbow’s End is a fun-filled day for the entire family. Whether you’re after the adrenaline rush of a corkscrew roller coaster, a place to take the kids for some gentle fun, or a dual family challenge on the bumper boats or go-carts, this theme park has everything you need.
Rainbow’s End really does have something for everyone, no matter what your age.
If you’re after a thrill, twist your way through the Corkscrew Coaster, plunge to the ground on the Fearfall, swing from the giant Stratosphere, or face your nerves on the famous Power Surge. An inception-like ride consisting of 360 degree rotations within rotations within rotations, this is one ride that is best to do well before you’ve eaten lunch!
If you’re after some fun but fancy keeping your lunch inside your body, then rides such as the Log Flume, Gold Rush, Dodgems, or Scorpion Karts will still give you that sweet adrenaline hit, minus the pure terror.
For the kids, there are a plethora of fun yet gentle rides to keep them occupied for hours within the Kidz Kingdom. From the classic Carousel, to the mini Surf n Swing, to the Jumpin’ Star, to the maze-like Fortress of Fun, there are no shortages of fun rides to choose from.
The Adult Superpass (ages 14+) allows you to spend all day in the park, and costs $64.99. The Child Superpass (ages 2-13) is $54.99, and the Senior Superpass costs $34.99.
If you’re going purely for the kids, there is also a Kidz Kingdom pass for $39.99, or $44.99 if you want to add on an unlimited log ride.
