  • Pacific Aviation Museum Pearl Harbor
    The servicemen of Pearl Harbor's naval base were taking some much-needed R&R between early-morning repairs inside Hangar 37 when suddenly they heard a buzzing overhead. With the humming of their own planes and battleships periodically filling the air, this rapidly approaching sound wasn't foreign to their ears, but this instance proved to be drastically different. Thunderous explosions soon overtook Pearl Harbor and the USS Arizona struggled to stay afloat as the Imperial Japanese Navy delivered a surprise military strike, which resulted in one of the most devastating attacks on American soil. With a mission to preserve the history of this tragic event, Pacific Aviation Museum Pearl Harbor opened that very same hangar to the public, hundreds of feet from where ships burned and men courageously fought more than 70 years ago. Hangar 37's 42,000-square-foot space currently houses many of the museum's artifacts, which include a World War II–era B-25B bomber, Japanese Zero, and naval planes such as the SBD Dauntless. Also open to the public, Hangar 79 displays the actual bullet holes that pierced its windows during the attack, while an authentic WWII maintenance shop contains an exhibit that explains how planes ran on Lucky Strike cigarette materials. Visitors can experience the museum's ever-evolving collection of exhibits––which has included segments dedicated to the Korean War's MiG Alley and the Flying Tigers––through guided tours in both hangars and submerse themselves in the virtual world of the museum's combat flight simulator.

  • Scare Hawaii
    Scare Hawaii recognizes that each of its visitors is unique. One might have a fear of the dark; another might be terrified of skeletons. With this in mind, the haunted house's creators seek to individually stoke each interloper's fear, growing it like the puddle of ectoplasm on a ghost's bed. What goes on inside the house is kept a close secret for maximum effect, but it will include dim foggy corridors, chilling special effects, and sudden spooks by actors.

  • Maui Hawaiian Village
    The name Maui conjures up images of people lounging on sun-soaked beaches, surfing monster waves, and snorkeling through pristine blue waters. But the island is also full of many secluded spots that have been untouched by the modern world. Maui Hawaiian Village lets visitors step back in time and discover one such pristine, remote location and get a glimpse into native Hawaiian life. It takes a drive and a short hike to reach the village itself, where an active restoration of a historical valley is in progress. Surrounded by a lush forest, majestic mountains, ancient rock walls, waterways, and Hawaiian agriculture, visitors learn about the island's culture and participate in hands-on activities. These activities allow visitors to personally experience the Hawaiian lifestyle and introduce them to plants native Hawaiians have used for food, shelter, and clothing. Groups can even sample small bites of freshly picked food from the land while reflecting on how Hawaiians have thrived for generations on nature's bounty.
