On October 14, 1963, the Polynesian Cultural Center (PCC) opened its doors to its first guests. Fifty years later, the PCC continues to thrive on Oahu’s North Shore with its fun, exciting and invigorating celebration of the people and cultures of Polynesia. One of its newest cultural presentations, Hawaiian Journey, is an immersive cinematic experience unlike any other offered in the islands. Cascading waterfalls and spectacular landscapes bring to life the connection between Native Hawaiians with their land and ancestral heritage. Throughout the film, guests experience crashing waves, mystic valleys and powerful eruptions through interactive special effects that tantalize the senses. Situated on 42 beautiful acres and anchored by six authentic Polynesian villages – Hawaii, Tahiti, Samoa, Fiji, Tonga, and Aotearoa – the non-profit PCC is the only cultural attraction of its kind in the world. PCC is open from noon to 9 p.m. Monday-Saturday, closed on Sundays. For more information or reservations, call 1-800-367-7060 or visit Polynesia.com.
