Rainbow's End Theme Park

This is one of New Zealand's premier theme parks, with crazy rides and attractions for children of all ages. For those under 10yrs, there's Kidz Kingdom with a host of rides including the space shuttle, car wash convoy, the jumpin star, the carousel and the brand new choco express, surf and swing and the magic bikes.

Older kids will scream their lungs out on New Zealand's only double-loop roller coaster, and there's more fun to be had on the invader, the power surge, fearfall, log flume, pirate ship, enchanted forest, and in an abandoned mine. Add bumper boats, cars, and virtual theatre, and the whole family will be glad you came.
