Coronavirus crisis closes Auckland’s Rainbow’s End

Coronavirus crisis closes Auckland’s Rainbow’s End
March 20, 2020

In an effort to prevent the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19), Auckland’s amusement park Rainbow's End has announced its closure until further advice is received from the New Zealand Ministry of Health.

In a statement on its Facebook page, Rainbow's End said it was taking the precaution in line with the Government advice around social isolation, and that mass gatherings of more than 500 people should be cancelled.

The statement advised “the safety and wellbeing of our guests and staff is our priority and we will take all necessary precautions and follow the advice of the Ministry of Health to ensure their continued welfare.”

Luna Park Sydney yesterday announced its closure "with immediate effect" while Dreamworld, Warner Bros. Movie World and Sea World on Australia's Gold Coast remain open.
