Win tickets to Night Rides!
In association with Rainbow’s End, The Post Newspaper is giving away three packs of four tickets to lucky readers, to be used on the evening of July 18 for an action packed night of fun.
Valued at over $150, each pack offers four adult tickets (valid for kids as well), and will allow the winners to enjoy a night on some of the most amazing and thrilling rides in the southern hemisphere.
With all rides open and awesome live entertainment, there’s loads of fun for everyone.
The latest ride Stratosfear is there to be conquered, and with a complete 360 degree rotation, it will challenge even the most seasoned thrill seeking ride enthusiasts.
This ride is a first in the Southern Hemisphere, seats 30 people and with the complete 360 it’s one of only four worldwide!
As well as the Stratosfear, check out their Invader; seated on a huge disk facing over the edge you will be spun and transported along an 80 metre track which reaches heights of 15 metres.
The Power Surge ride is billed as giving riders a different ride every time. Riders begin their disorientating journey seated in a star formation with their feet dangling below them touching the ground.
They are then hoisted 18 metres into the air and spun on both vertical and horizontal axes.
But wait, there’s more – while the ride is spinning the seats rotate as well! At 18 stories high, the Fearfall takes two cars of four seated riders each on a controlled ascent to the top of the tower, pauses them for a few seconds and then drops them – reaching speeds of 80km/h.
And then there’s the Corkscrew Coaster, the only one in New Zealand. You are taken more than 90 feet in the air, then sent shooting down towards the ground into a complete loop, round a corner at teeth-rattling speed and then into a double corkscrew.
These are just a few of the attractions which are made even better at night, and are proving to be one of Auckland’s premier night-time attractions.
To be in with a chance to win one of the packs of tickets, simply email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and tell us how many people the new Stratosfear ride seats.
Don’t forget to include your name and contact telephone number!
All correct entries will go into a draw to be held at noon on Monday July 13. Winners will be contacted by telephone and announced in the Post
Newspaper on July 14.
One entry per person.
Good luck, and you could be in action on Saturday July 18! Since you’re here… we have a small favour to ask. More and more people want the Post than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. The Post’s independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. With investigative reporting, we often don't know at the beginning how a story will unfold and how long it might take to uncover. This can mean it is costly – particularly as we often face legal threats that attempt to stop our reporting. But we remain committed to raising important questions and exposing wrongdoing. And we do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too. If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps to support it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as NZ$5, you can support the Post – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
