So I was looking up my local park, Rainbow's End, the other day and found that there hadn't being a Trip Report made in years. So since my new annual pass just arrived it was the perfect time to head on out for some photos.

Sorry about the less than desirable photo quality, my mom had the DSLR camera so I couldn't use it :(

Thanks for the report. I think this park is harder for most people to get to than Singapore or Dubai cause it's just so darn at the end of the world!

I had no idea New Zealand had a park - let alone a nice mid-size one.

thanks for the report and the photos, as it really does look like a fun, spend-a-few-hours park. and tho I could see it get a little overwhelming, I actually *really* like that they went for it, and used the rainbow paint theming on multiple rides thruout the park.

in particular? it really looks great on Corkscrew!

well done, Rainbow's End.



thanks again for sharing :)

^ As do I!

Nice report on a very out of the way park. Looks like they could use a few more coasters, but their flat ride selection looks pretty top notch.

I'm rather intrigued by the Gold Rush ride. Thanks for the report!

Thanks for posting the trip report. By the looks of your photos, it looks as if you could pop in at the park for an hour or two. Fearfall, Stratosfear, Corkscrew Coaster, and Power Surge make the park worth a visit.

What else did you do in New Zealand? I was there three years ago and only toured the North Island. I spent most of my time on the western coast (New Plymouth). The country itself is absolutely stunning; puts Ohio to shame.

Nice to see a more... "up to date" visit to this park!! Thanks for the TR, and the photos!! Looks like an awesome little park.

I also LOVE this coaster's paint scheme. . .

Great report. Very cool to see parks from (for me) very far away. Looks like it's a worthwhile place, if I ever go to NZ.
