Loaded with thrill rides, bumper cars and sideshow attractions, Rainbow's End is one of Auckland's top family days out. The park's signature ride is the Corkscrew Coaster, which sends passengers twisting, looping and spiralling along the tracks.
Get behind the wheel on Family Karts, test your seafaring skills on the Bumper Boats and win prizes in Sideshow Alley. Toddlers and pre-teens will love Kidz Kingdom, a family-oriented zone filled with rides and arcade games. Escape the sunshine on the 4D Motion Master, a multisensory indoor attraction that follows the Wishbone family on an action-packed adventure.
Rainbow's End offers plenty of action for thrill seekers, including the stomach-churning Stratosphere. There’s only a handful of these the planet, where riders are locked into a circular cage and spun 360 degrees at heights of up to 30 metres. On a sunny day, prepare to get drenched on the Log Flume, which plummets 17 metres down a slide.
Rainbow's End is a 20-minute drive from the Auckland CBD and offers on-site parking. Local trains will get you to Manukau Station, a 650-metre walk from Rainbow's End, in 30 minutes.
