Hawaii is filled with plenty of haunting tales and since it’s October, that means the witching hour is soon to be upon us.
Several spooky events are on the lineup this year and if you’re a local or just planning to spend your Halloween in the islands, there’s plenty of frightful experiences to be had by all ages.
Here are two top events that we recommend for your haunted Hawaiian nights!
Haunted Lagoon @ PCC
The Laie Lady Lurks at Polynesian Cultural Center’s New Haunted Lagoon this Halloween
Kama’aina Get a Special Treat with 50 Percent Off Purchase of an Annual Pass La’ie, Hawai’i (Sept. 23, 2008) Â Things will go bump in the night at the Polynesian Cultural Center this Halloween at its new Haunted Lagoon. From October 24-31 (closed on Sunday), PCC will give its visitors a unique way to celebrate the Halloween season. Guests will be able to take a twilight canoe ride through the Center that promises a scary (but fun) night to be had by all. Snacks and spooky souvenirs will also be available. And, for those local residents who want to come back to the PCC for more, kama’aina annual passes will be available for 50 percent off through the end of the month.
The Haunted Lagoon will feature a keiki version that the whole family can enjoy, and a meandering, spookier version for those with braver souls. Local rumor has it that the mysterious and vengeful Laie Lady is a frequent visitor to the Center grounds on dark nights, incessantly searching for her child she left behind or her killer; no one knows for sure.
Admission: Tickets are $8 for adults 16 and older, and $5 for keiki
ages 5-15 years. Kama’aina Annual Pass holders and keiki under 5 will receive one free ride per night. Parking is free after 5:00 p.m.

The Haunted Village @ WCC
The Nightwalk is a 15-minute virtual tour of a haunted graveyard that features 3D animated magic. Audiences will be guided on a night walk down a creepy crypt and into a haunted mansion filled with bats, ghosts and other spooky things that only come out at night.
Shows are every 20 minutes from 6-8 p.m. Tickets are $3 per mortal, or $2 for costumed customers, so put on your Halloween best. Tickets will be available at the box office on the night of the event.
Most of the Haunted Village’s other spook-tacular activities are free of charge.
