Last Chance For Savings At The Haunted Lagoon
Eerie canoe ride has welcomed more than 100,000 brave passengers since opening in 2008
Laie, Hawaii – The Polynesian Cultural Center (PCC) is offering kamaaina one last chance to save on a spine-tingling journey through the Haunted Lagoon. When booking online at HauntedLagoon.com, kamaaina may purchase adult and keiki general tickets for just $13, a savings of nearly $7.
This special is valid on select days from Oct. 17 through 31; visit HauntedLagoon.com for more details. Supplies are limited. Tickets must be booked a minimum of 24 hours in advance and cannot be combined with other offers. Ticket holders must provide proof of Hawaii residency at the time of pick up.
Renowned as Hawaii’s top haunted attraction and the only haunted canoe ride in the world, the Haunted Lagoon has scared more than 100,000 guests since opening four years ago. This full-scale production features a ghastly cast of more than 100, and includes state-of-the-art special effects and animatronics, as well as a new 3D walkthrough experience that begins even before boarding the canoes. Guests cast off on double-hulled canoes and are taken on a harrowing journey through the dark waters of the PCC’s twisting lagoon. Canoes run from 6:30 p.m. every Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday through Oct. 22, and then Monday through Saturday from Oct. 24 to 31.
“There has never been a better time to book online,” said Raymond Magalei, PCC’s director of marketing. “Last week, we were proud to welcome our 100,000th Haunted Lagoon passenger in less than four seasons. Now, not only will guests be guaranteed a seat on one of our canoes, they will also save time and money by taking advantage of this special online offer.”
The ride revolves around the story of the Laie Lady, the restless, vengeful spirit of a young woman dressed in white who fell into insanity following tragedy many years ago. Legend has it that she now wanders the lagoon searching for her lost son. This year, it appears she is not the only one looking for him, as her vengeful, murdered husband has returned.
The Haunted Lagoon is not for the faint of heart, so the PCC also offers milder “keiki canoes” from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. for family members of all ages. Aboard each keiki canoe is a “lost warrior” who protects his passengers with the mystical light staff, which repels monsters and creatures, including the ghostly Laie Lady.
Standard kamaaina tickets are $19.95 per adult and $14.95 for keiki. General tickets are $25 per adult and $20 for children. Kamaaina Annual Pass holders may ride free on weekdays and for a discounted rate on Saturdays. Fast Passes are additional.
