New Zealand’s speciality in providing diverse experiences is not only limited to its stunningly diverse terrain but also in their man-made endeavours such as the Rainbow’s End, the country’s premier Theme Park located in Auckland.
Initially, when the establishment opened to the public in 1982, it consisted of only a small number of rides and attractions. As time progressed, additional attractions such as the Pirate Ship, Log Flume, Dodgems and Space Shuttle Zim Zam Zoo Playground were opened. At present, the main attraction of the park is undoubtedly the Corkscrew Roller Coaster, which coincidentally is the only feature of its kind available in the country.
For the thrill seekers, the Power Surge will literally make them spin with delight as the ride spins both horizontally and vertically while one of the newest roller coaster rides, The Invader, will make them scream as it charges across an eighty metre track at high speed. For an additional thrill, make your way to the Fear Fall where you will be lifted up and dropped at a speed of 80 km/h that is sure to make your heart race. The Park is also complete with themed roller coaster rides, such as Goldrush which is modelled with very sharp corners and heart wrenching drops. After all the thrill and excitement, one may opt for the slow paced Cinema 180, a screen with a 180 degree view which shows a 12 minute movie.
For children, the Castle Land attraction is ideal for it specifically caters to the needs of the younger patrons. The Castle Land is complete with Space Shuttles, The Carousal and The Jumpin’ Star and can even be rented for a one of a kind birthday party. For families, the Scorpion Karts are ideal. These are essentially Go-Karts suitable for families to ride in. Families could also opt for the Bumper Boats where riders can drive leisurely or cause mischief by bumping into other boats. Another ride that could be enjoyed greatly by families is the Enchanted Log Flume which is also one of the Park’s most beloved rides and is complete with a photo capture at the end of the ride.
All in all, Rainbows End provides for a fun outing for families, kids, and even senior citizens! Being the country’s largest theme park it is definitely worth a visit when touring New Zealand.
