We enjoyed the show, and learned a few things that we didn't know about Hawaii. You definitely want to review the Program that you are given when you get your tickets. It provides details about each scene that will help you understand the dance. The...More

We went here to see the show from a recommendation made by the Concierge Desk at our Timeshare unit on Thursday night November 16, 2017. We told if we paid cash that, we could get $10 off each $85 ticket in the Gold level seating....More

One of the best ways to see, hear and feel Hawai'i history and culture. While references to myth and village life may be less familiar and even tricky to understand to some, the value of family and cultural identify should resonate with anyone. The music...More

We did some amazing things in Maui and saved this until the end so maybe my expectations were too high. However, we did not enjoy this show and were bored. First of all, the theater is freezing cold. They were also 10 minutes late starting...More

Great show with live music and sound effects. It is based on the culture of Hawaii and not a Cirque de Solei type show. Lots of movement around the theatre by the performers with lots of props. Very entertaining.

This show represents the Hawaiian culture and history. The performance is artistic with hula dance. It is Vegas's production styles. It is also a less expensive way to enjoy the Hawaiian culture compare with the dinner show. Don't miss out.

85 minutes of interpretive dance and pantomime. Must read the program in advance to understand the story. Choreography and music was good. A few dancers were professional quality and the live accompanying music was good, though distractingly loud at times. Familiar storyline of noble savages...More

We were expecting a Polynesian theme show. This interpretive dance and music. It attempts to tell the history of the Hawaiian island peoples. The dance is hard to follow and the symbolism is confusing. The staging is very dark and it's hard to see what's...More

To answer the question about dinner after the Ulalena show. If you park in the Outlet lot across the St from the theatre, the theatre validates your ticket for 4 hrs. There are many nice restaurants on Front St. On trip... More
