"The Polynesian Cultural Center..." Hawaii (State of) Tourist Trap Tip by TMR1010

Hawaii (State of) Tourist Traps: 63 reviews and 35 photos

The Polynesian Cultural Center - It was fun to see the different villages and see the shows throughout the day, and the nighttime show with the dancing and fire batons etc. was really awesome. But the whole place had a kind of cheesy feel to - and it was VERY expensive! The buffet-style luau made me feel like I was in a Hawaiian-themed resort in Vegas. We called the place the 'Luateria' because of the mess hall feel to it. The best part was watching my sister-in-law eat all our tiny plastic cups of poi.
