Natural bamboo and wood fences surround the miniature fairways of Jungle River Mini Golf, whose aptly named course pits putters against a slew of jungle-themed obstacles. Like rainforest explorers, groups of golfers hack through the wild landscape, forgoing machetes for colorful putters or spring-loaded spatulas sized to accommodate guests of all ages. Monkeypod trees, palms, crotons, and banana plants drape over the course, framing many attractions including sculptures of friendly gorillas and dinosaurs emerging from tar pits. The course also features large bridges and waterfalls that meander throughout to create sharp turns and contoured greens.
In 1988, Natalie Brown-Aiwohi began working as a makeup artist at Headshots Hawaii. A month later, she was promoted to manager. In 2010, after 22 years as manager, Brown-Aiwohi purchased the studio herself and built a new location to house it at the Aiea Town Square. Immediately, she transformed a franchise that had been known for its 1980s-style glitz into a full-service photography studio that captures images of clients just as they are. “After all the glitz and glam, people wanted to look like themselves—they wanted more of a natural look,” Brown-Aiwohi told Pacific Business News in 2010, shortly after the move.
Today, Headshots Hawaii is the only remaining Headshots franchise of dozens that had opened in the 1980s and 1990s, and Brown-Aiwohi’s dream is still going strong. As a partner of the Miss Hawaii Pageant, Headshots Hawaii snaps photos of reigning Miss Hawaiis, drawing on Brown-Aiwohi’s experience as a former pageant queen and model. Photographers also shoot images for weddings, businesses, aspiring models, and airtight alibis, tailoring the style to suit the client. Brown-Aiwohi gives back to the community with charitable work, such as supporting events to benefit homeless teens.
At Brothers Paintball, sharpshooters aged 10 and older equip themselves with protective masks, multicolored paintballs, and semiautomatic markers before exchanging colorful crossfire on the field. Players avoid becoming a work of art by weaving in and out of trees, hiding in bunkers, and ducking for cover behind wooden planks and boxes. In between matches, paint slingers can drink refreshments they've brought, lick their wounds, and brush elbows with the enemy at a table area.
Royal Party Rentals ably outfits gatherings of all sizes, supplying necessities from tents to silverware. Rent a fete-finishing touch such as a 10'x10' white canopy tent to provide shade for a pool party ($125), or choose a portable 9'x12' dance floor so up to 14 couples can safely bunny hop at the company picnic ($243). Should additional flooring be in order, options such as a 6'x8' stage ensure that the birthday boy or girl stands 12 to 24 inches above the guests as they are pelted with traditional birthday pies ($57). A 48-inch heart-shaped table ($10.25) provides a sweet resting place for Marie Louise china ($0.70–$0.75/plate) or a romantic setting for festive arm wrestling.

Lisa Rose Doll House & Tea Room commemorates birthdays by indulging young ladies between the ages of 4–13 with elegant dress-up tea parties, earning the honor of Best Kiddie Birthday Party in Hawaii from Honolulu magazine. At the 90-minute Rosebud Princess Tea Party or Glamor Girl Tea Party, four girls are unleashed into a dressing room brimming with princess dresses, tiaras, handbags, and other accessories, harking back to a time when ladies dressed in their finest and glitter was an abundant resource. Before girls put on a fashion show for each other, nimble-fingered staffers complete the courtly transformation by outfitting aspiring debutantes with fancy hairdos, makeup, painted nails, and intriguing back-stories. At the tea-party luncheon, elaborate floral centerpieces and lacey place-settings cradle peanut butter and jelly, turkey, and tuna finger-sandwiches, as well as fruit, cheese, vegetables and dip, minicheese pizzas, sliced hot dogs, and lemonade. After shouting the names of dairy products during a photo shoot, the girls tackle an array of princess cupcakes and sweets, then extinguish the ceremonial flames before receiving party favors. The 90-minute tea parties can accommodate two additional guests over 6 years old ($25 each).
