“Great entertainment!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 March 2014 via mobile

This was our first hula, and it didn't disappoint! There were male and female dancers, as well as kids. They were all fantastic, showing their wonderful talents. It was great to see the boys, some barely walking age, learning and practicing the art. We arrived about 45 minutes early, and we're glad we did, there was standing room only by the time the show started. I wish we would have stayed for the free hula lesson afterwards, but our little ones were too worn out for that.

“Quality Free Luau Show”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 February 2014

This show is very well done for a free show. They first do a Tahitian and an Hawaiian style dance set. Then they do a keiki hula set followed by a New Zealand dance number. Last they have a fire eater/ dancer who is as good as anyone that I have seen at a luau where I have paid top dollar. I would recommend to arrive early if you want to get a seat and a parking space. Very well done!

“Fun show, don't miss it!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 January 2014

Very good dancing and music. Maybe not professional quality but free is free. They do shows on Monday and Thursday and they are different, so go twice. We got there almost at 7 and had no problem finding seats but if you want something upfront better plan on earlier.

“Free Hula Show”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 November 2013

This was a great alternative to going to a luau. We really just wanted to see Hawaiian dancing and that's what you get here. The dancers were great, they performed different types of dances and the men danced with fire. They perform there twice a week and it's definitely worth going to. If it is a busy time of year, get there early because the outdoor stage has limited seating.
