After a five-year run, we have decided to not operate the Haunted Lagoon. It was a wonderful event, and we greatly appreciate the incredible amount of support the Haunted Lagoon received from everyone.
With the holidays approaching and plans being made for family activities, we are excited to announce that we will again be offering Christmas in Polynesia from December 13-23. This year’s theme will focus on Christmas Traditions Around the World.
Mahalo nui loa (thank you very much) for your continued support of the Polynesian Cultural Center. We hope to see you soon.
Every year the Polynesian Cultural Center hosts a series of cultural, seasonal and special events. For further information on a specific event please visit the website of the event you are interested in attending or participating.
