We gave each our kids $20 to buy souvenirs during our trip to Hawaii. Our 9 year old decided to spend his money on the ride at the back of the shop. They gave him a great deal on an all day pass and he loved it. I didn't join him, my husband did for a bit and then he... More

This is a small 24 seat 3D screen plus motion seat theater. There are about 10 different films to watch. Most are some form of animated thrill ride like roller coaster rides and last 10-15 minutes each. One real human one was a speed boat ride showing Hawaiian under water sea life. One ticket retails for $6/person but there are... More

We got to go here for free thanks to a deal with the resort we were staying at, so that probably colors my thinking. We were just killing some time before dinner. The roller coaster adventure was pretty fun, though my husband got a little queasy. The one child in the theater clearly had a total blast and was sad... More

We watched the ocean film or ride as they call it. Fun, but super short. Lasted only about 15 minutes at the most for $6. A bit pricey for the return.

This is a fun treat for the kids. Ask for a buy one get one coupon and it's really reasonably priced. They also offer the deal after the hula shows on Monday and Thursday nights. This made it $5 for 2 kids to see one short movie.

My two kids age 3 and 6 can not get enough of this place. They have asked to go back 3 times on our trip. The staff was super friendly and helpful, they even offered to watch my 3 year old while my 6 year old and I did a movie that was too scary for the younger one. It's... More

We went to this 4D experience just to pass some time before heading back to the beach. The "theater" is located in the souvenir shop. We had a 2-for-1 pass, so it was $18 to watch 3 shows. Each show is about 15 minutes in length, and at the end of the 3 shows, we were happy to leave. There... More

We took a four-year-old grandchild for a diversion. Since we were there when it opened and they weren't busy, the manager told us to just ignore the schedule and choose what we wanted to see. She then showed the shows, all rather short, back to back. It was relatively inexpensive (for Hawaii, that is) and she helped us to customize... More

Take a break! After lunch at Tommy Bahama's take a short stroll through the Shops at Mauna Lani to the 4D theatre. Enjoy a little 10-15 min. movie ride in air conditioned comfort (a number of different shows from which to choose); then do all of your souvenir shopping in their many-itemed gift shop. Corey and friends are friendly and... More
