This is probably the best show I’ve seen in my life. The show takes you on a cultural journey through Polynesia as you experience the traditional dances, costumes, and chanting of several Pacific island cultures. The storyline is not incredibly deep, but that’s not the...More

This show was a great way to end our day at the Polynesian Cultural Center! It was non stop 90 minutes of entertainment! Be sure to grab a program so you can read along with the scenes to make sure you can follow the storyline!...More

Loved the story, the dancing, the flame jugglers... everything! Can't wait to watch the video with our kids. If possible, get front seats and a back stage tour after. Highly recommended!

Did an amazing job incorporating all the main cultures from Polynesia in a great show. Best part is your admission goes to supporting the local students attending the BYU - Hawaii campus.

Really enjoyed this show. It was a wonderful example of the six islands represented in the park, told in a sweet poignant way. The story of a family and the stages of life, with each stage based on a different Polynesian island. It was exciting...More
