We both have canes and found the stairs on the way to our seats very difficult to navigate. The show was very high energy and the impersonators were talented. The music was louder than the singers though and that detracted from the performances.

We have been to this shows four times in last ten years . We have a party of six , three adults and three kids (6 to 8). The kids excited to especially about Michael Jackson . ( Elvis and Whitney Houston they don’t seem to know ). The venue in Waikiki Hawaiian shopping Centre , we had dinner at A restaurent downstairs . You also can get dinner inclusive tickets , with tables close to Stage , we bought the premium seating , comes with a drink . The place was 80 percent filled. The shows seems to have improved since I saw last 2 years ago . The stage is Grand and the band is terrific . The three featured imitator performers are good , Elvis is fun and entertains well and interact with the audience , Whitney has the best voice , her rendition of I will always love you the best song tonight , Jackson superb dance move , moon walk aroused the audience . The supporting dancers and singers is very good too . The lone performer of Hawaiian fire show outstanding . We have a great evening. , plan to be back in a few years ( Jackson / Elvis always same , the lady changes , Celine Dion , Diana Ross , Whitney Houston , may be Katie Perry next time ). The kids still practice the moon walk when we returned back to hotel. !

The place was fabulous. We took the back stage door which was very interesting. We had front row dining seats and the food was magnificent. The Elvis impersonator was the best I have seen. This trip to Hawaii was my birthday present to my 70 year old mom. She had a blast (so didI) at this and many other activities we did. My mom said the the Rock-a-Hula was by far the best thing in Hawaii for her. When Elvis came down and placed a lei on my mom and kissed her cheek made her day(her words). Would recommend this place for everyone to go to at least once.

Bought the cheap seats no meal before but the theatre is of a high standard with great comfortable seats plenty legroom and even tho sitting above the stage a great view of all . Elvis M Jackson and others fillled the stage virtually non-stop for 1.25hrs plus, plenty of enthusiasm and good singing and dancing. Not normally my sort of thing but very enjoyable.
There is a discount in one of the free books on the street worth grabbing when you book tickets.
