Summer is finally here!
Summer is an awesome time to visit Rainbow's End and the summer school holidays are a very popular time to visit. Here's our top 5 tips to prepare for your visit this summer.
1. Stay Hydrated
In the summer sun it's important to stay hydrated. We encourage all our guests to bring water bottles to Rainbow's End, or if you forget you can purchase one at our gift shop at the main gate. You can refill your water bottle at our Hydration Stations beside the Crazy Sideshows, Recharge Zone and beside Small Talk Cafe. If you can't spot the water fountain please ask our team and they will point you in the right direction.
2. Wear Sunscreen
Sunscreen is really important. Even on cloudy days the NZ sun can still burn so make sure you apply before you arrive and keep applying throughout the day. If you've forgotten to bring yours then you can pick up a bottle in our gift shop at the main entrance. If you have little ones with you Kidz Kingdom is fully covered under our giant rainbow roof so it's the perfect place to play out of the sun.
3. Spend some time in the shade
You can find shade at our Centre Stage (and it's a nice spot for lunch!) there's also plenty of trees around the park and most of the queuing ares at rides are shaded. Grab a water break and reapply your sunblock in the shade to cool down. We also have a team trained in first aid at Rainbow's End so if you're feeling unwell at any time during the day please let any member of our team know.
4. Summer of Fun Pass
Until 5th Jan 2020 you can pick up a Summer of Fun pass for unlimited rides during the day all summer long! When activated you'll just need to scan this card with our team at the entrance to get your superpass wristband. See all the details and get your Summer of Fun Pass here. This is a great option if you're visiting a couple of times during the holidays.
5. Ice Cream
Stop by the Ice Cream Cafe near Centre Stage or the Small Talk Cafe in Kidz Kingdom and grab an ice cream - even if it's not hot.. because Ice Cream is delicious.
