Halloween Means Hauntings

They also offer “keiki rides” which leaves at 6:30, 7:00 and 7:30 pm, if you have young ones with you.  The main difference is that the keiki canoes have a lost warrior that rides along to protect them from evil spirits, while adults are left to fend for themselves. Its a good idea if you purchase your tickets in advance.

Ticket prices are $25 for adults, $20 for children (Fast pass – $40/$35). Kama’aina pricing and various discounts are available as well. Prices do not include the standard entry to the rest of the PCC.  The Haunted Lagoon runs Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays & Saturdays between Sept. 30th and Oct 23rd;  Monday – Saturday from October 24th through Halloween night. Canoes start at 6:30pm (Fast Pass times: 7:00, 7:30, 8:30.)
