New ride set to thrill


Rainbow’s End has recently opened the new Spectra Dark Ride – just in time for the July School holidays.

The Spectra Dark Ride is the biggest, immersive 7D theatre experience in the Southern Hemisphere.

The custom 28-seater ride mixes the thrill of an amusement park ride, with movies and gaming. It’s a modern twist on the 3D experience and sure to entertain everyone in the family.

The ride features different movies in 3D, with all of the extra features to tickle the sensors and laser blasters so players can participate in the story, while competing with friends and family to find the champion.

The Spectra Dark Ride replaces the previous 3D Motion Master ride at Rainbow’s End. It was due to release in the April school holidays, but the installation was abruptly stalled when the ride manufacturers, TrioTech, had to halt work due to the COVID lockdown and return to Canada.

As soon as New Zealand moved to Level 2 the park re-opened and the Rainbow’s End construction and maintenance teams have been working remotely with the Canadian-based ride manufacturers to finish the commissioning of the ride and prepare it for opening.

“We are really excited to be opening the Spectra Dark Ride in time for the July school holidays”, says CEO Karen Crabb. “It has been a massive team effort to complete the installation and theming. Kiwis are incredibly creative and resourceful and this is a great example of how we can pull together to create an entertainment offering that rivals our international counterparts.”

”We are happy to bring Triotech’s award-winning attractions to Rainbow's End,” says Triotech’s Founder and CEO Ernest Yale.

”The one thing about the Dark Ride is that guests always come out with a smile! It appeals to everyone, it’s immersive, it’s interactive, they play, they compete, they are part of the action.”

Spectra Dark Ride opened on Friday, July 3.

Rides are unlimited with every Superpass purchase. Rainbow’s End is open every day of the school holidays, or Friday, Saturday and Sunday during Term 2 and 3.
