“First time fun”
Reviewed 8 October 2013

It was my first time on one of these and it was very interesting. It was so real to life with water misting you,wind, vines and the chairs rocked for extra fun. It was a great time.

“Nice for the kids when you have some "down time"”
Reviewed 3 September 2013

On an evening when we needed some "down time", it was nice to take our daughter to the Shops at Mauna Lani and let her experience the 4-D movies. Not too expensive, and perfect for the stomach and attention span of our eleven-year-old. She really enjoyed it! (FYI: We bought two, three-movie passes with the intention of a parent accompanying her to each show, but that didn't happen. The adults each felt a bit "woozy".)

“great little time filler”
Reviewed 28 August 2013

We watched Sea Monsters and Hawaii Roller Coaster movie, they were both awesome!! The lady who served us was so friendly and gave us two movies for the price of one even through we didn't have a coupon. There was water spray, shots of air in your face and things that touched your legs... yes I screamed out loud on several occasions!!! lol. The kids were laughed about Mum being scared!! Ages 8 and 10. The kids loved it. It is short, about 15 mins for x2 movies but well worth it if you need something to do with the kids. There is a sheet of activities of local entertainment as well so we will be heading back there tomorrow night to watch the fire dance. Can't wait the local people are so friendly and welcoming. We are in love with The Big Island!!

“Great for killing time”
Reviewed 27 August 2013

This was an amazing 20 minute movie that played with all 5 of your senses. Very enjoyable. I liked the realistic graphics and sounds. The only con is the time constraint. A little bit longer would have been great.

“Pleasant, if pricey, distraction for the kids”
Reviewed 9 July 2013

We're pretty regular visitors to the Mauna Lani, with 3 small children. For a nice, short, air-conditioned distraction at the Shops this is OK. $6/head for 15 min is a bit much though. You should know that their "2-for-one deal" that they tied in with the Hula/Polynesian show night is not 2 people at one price, but a first and second feature for one price.

The 4D aspect is great for kids up to age 7.
