  • Today was an absolutely incredible experience. I wasn't sure what it would be like, but it was amazing. It's kind of like a Polynesian Disneyland. There are different sections of islands/ cultures and various activities/demonstrations to do inside. The demonstrators are engaging and very entertaining. All of the employees were incredibly kind and it's a very laid back atmosphere. There is plenty to do, even nice shops and great food. We did The luau package with the Breath of Life. The luau had a variety of delicious food and also entertainment, very worth it (even a roast pig!). The breath of life show was amazing, a beautiful story with captivating dancing and music- and insane fire dancing!! Absolutely worth it. Some complain about pricing and yes it's a lot but I don't think they appreciate what all of there money goes to- a good cause for students and considering the upkeep of the place and everything else involved, it's not bad. I highly recommend getting the Oahu pass, it pays for itself especially if you come here.
  • The Polynesian Cultural is the place to go for a luau! You get to watch a show and experience what it was like being a Polynesian. There were many different cultures that you learn and each show is very entertaining and interactive with the audience. The luau itself was wonderful with a great selection of food and fresh pork. The show was great and the announcer got the crowd involved with a whole lot of dancing. The show afterward which showed the creation of the people was amazing too with great actors and people who could spit fire. Overall the Polynesian Cultural Center is very informative and is a great place to have fun and enjoy the night.
