Promising Hawaiian-style “chicken skin,” this spirited journey with Hawaiian Escapades takes guests on an exploration
of one of Hawaii’s best-kept secrets: We’re one of the most haunted states in the US. We take our guests to locations
of documented hauntings, share the hidden history, chilling facts, and darker folklore surrounding Oahu’s most well-known
sights, and explore methods that modern-day ghost hunters use to uncover any truths behind the mysteries and myths.
Between battles — both pre-Hawaiian Kingdom and post WWII, contemporary buildings built on ancient burial grounds,
modern freeways following along the paths of ghostly Night Marchers, and forgotten places of human sacrifice amid the
metropolitan sprawl of Honolulu, Oahu boasts more than its fair share of ancient legends and haunted places.
After pick-ups in Waikiki, we drive to a site of a sacrificial heiau. A brief stop at this location — which is more
recently the site of a tragic school bus accident — we continue to a place referred to as "Quarantine Island"
to reveal the secret ceremonies that make this such a haunted location.
Following views of Pearl Harbor we continue to the Windward side of Oahu, via a highway said to have been built over
ancient Hawaiian burial grounds. Delays caused by ghost sightings resulted in highway construction lasting seven
years. Workers digging through the Ko’olau Mountains unearthed skulls and bones, and it is said that the cries of
old Hawaiian warriors can be heard in the resulting tunnels.
On the Windward side we stop at another sacred heiau, believed to have been built by the Menehune, and a site of
human sacrifice. The marsh upon which the heiau is built is also considered the home of the earth goddess Haumea
where you will learn about the goddess’ daughters who can transform into lizards.
We continue our journey back to the Nu’uanu valley, up the Pali Highway past the Nu’uanu Pali Lookout where
Kamehameha the Great’s army drove the defenders of Oahu over its cliffs and to their deaths. Once back in town,
we continue with a walking tour of the Downtown, where ancient Night Marchers, restless turn-of-the-last-century
spirits, and modern-day ghosts mingle with locals and tourists alike on the streets of Honolulu.
We conclude at the Royal Mausoleum where the spirits of Hawaii’s monarchs are said to sit across the branches
of a large tree guarding the front gates. A final brief stop at Punchbowl Hill, you will learn about why this
location is also known as the "hill of sacrifice."
Guest participating in the ghost hunt will have an opportunity to use devices to measure electromagnetic
fields — fields that ghosts are known to emit. Certainly, a useful tool that modern-day ghost hunters use to
uncover any truths behind the mysteries and myths.
