Kidz Kingdom by Rainbow’s End – Pure fun for under 8’s

Keeping little ones entertained in the week when the older ones are at school can be hard work, especially in the winter months with more time indoors.

Kidz Kingdom at Rainbow’s End is a great way to break routine and give your little ones a truly magical day out, whatever the weather.

Kidz Kingdom is a mini Amusement park with over 13 rides and attractions built just for kids 8 and under. All Kidz Kingdom attractions are undercover or inside, making it the perfect place to play, rain or shine, 364 days a year.

With a mix of classic amusement rides and play zones, there’s plenty to keep the little ones occupied for hours, and a full-service café on site with great coffee and plenty of food options to refresh.

All the fun for half the price on Thursdays

Head in Thursdays 10am – 4pm during school term time and pay only half the standard Kidz Kingdom Pass Entry, a great value option for a weekday treat, and a fantastic meet up location for coffee groups.

Half price Thursdays also include a free small espresso coffee from the Kidz Kingdom Small Talk café for the Spectator ticketed adult accompanying the child.

Plan for a great day

Height is an important safety factor on rides, so we recommend you check the height restrictions by ride to avoid disappointment.

Some ride height restrictions may mean you need to ride with your child, like Magic Bikes, the Choco Express Roller Coaster and the Surf and Swing, all lovely fun experiences to share together.

If hands on play is more their thing there’s plenty of space to move and explore with the Fortress of Fun play structure full of slides, tunnels and obstacles to explore, Comfyland play zone and the Tiny Tots soft play area just for little ones 2 and under.

Come rain or shine to Kidz Kingdom, the ultimate kids play and entertainment zone, half price kids on Thursdays!

    What an awesome sounding place to go and visit. We live in Christchurch and have heard great things about Rainbows End – maybe they could look at building one in the South Island for those of us who can’t get to the North Island as freely.

    It is wonderful that they have a section for the younger children – ideal to take them during the school term. I really like the idea that it is undercover as this means another rainy day option for the children. Will definitely need to look in to this next time we are in Auckland.

    This is awesome! We live in Wanganui but I have always wanted to take Master 9, and now Miss 2 to check out Rainbows End. I love theme parks and have been to a number overseas but not our very own!I hope they run this promotion for some time as I would like to take the kids sometime soon 🙂

    We were lucky enough to win Rainbows End Passes from Kidspot and was my 3 boys first time ever… The kids kingdom proved to be very popular not just with my youngest but my older 2 also enjoyed a few of the rides alongside him too. I love that they are like mini versions of the main rides so the little ones feel included. I was surprised at just how many rides were tgere too and the ice creams at the cafe were reasonably priced too.
    Cool thst you can just pay for kids kingdom not whole paek which i didnt realise which makes it a great idea for birthday party something ill deff look into when its his bday

    Actually sounds like a lot of fun! Especially like the free coffee. It’s like they know 😉 I haven’t been to Rainbows End in so long. I might have to add it to my list of things to do in Auckland for our next visit ❤️

    I’ve seen so many ads for Rainbow’s end and we have never been here. Now with 1/2 off on Thursdays – that’s a good marketing idea for families with kids to be able to go. Similar to everyone else here, I just wish it was in my region. There’s no theme park here in Welly (that I know of)…do correct me if there is. Only though bouncy indoor places for the kids to go into.

    Rainbows End is great! My kids love it and the Kidz Kingdom is a fantastic idea to keep the boisterous bigger kids from knocking the littler kids around. We will miss this now that we have moved south.

    Rainbows end sounds so much fun I wish it was in the South Island though. This reminds me of the theme parks in Australia they are so fun. I wish I knew about this when the kids were younger. This is cheap though and with 13 rides or attractions to see. It’s great that the kidz kingdom area is undercover too for the under 8 year olds so you can visit any time of the year.

    I sometimes wish we lived in a bigger city, although there are pros and cons. This park looks so awesome though and my 6 year old would love it! We have a few different places in Dunedin to choose from, but as we live in the centre of town we have pretty much seen and done everything haha. This would be such an awesome place to take our daughter though, she can get a bit scared at playgrounds sometimes when there are bigger kids around and getting rough 🙂

    Would be even better if we had one in Christchurch too… here its pretty boring in that there isnt much to do…Rainbows end is a cool place to take kiddies i must admit… a shame we live away.

    Wow this is a cheap day out at only 16 dollars per child on a Thursday. I would be so keen to take the kids to this 8 and under kids Kingdom themepark. How cool having one that suits both my children. This is awesome I so need to get cheap flights then take kids for a holiday. Looks so awesome and they would have the time of their lives for sure.
