At This Luau, You’re Part of the Ohana
Hosted by Chief Sielu Avea, the Chief’s Luau at Wet ‘n’ Wild Hawaii makes sure that you feel like you’ve become part of a big Polynesian family. The Luau offers just the right combination of cultural experience, delicious food and drinks, and thrilling performances. You’re welcome to join the celebration, dance, and enjoy everything the Chief’s family has to share.
As you arrive at the venue, you’re greeted with a traditional lei. The friendly staff invite you to try out some of the cultural activities, such as making your own headband out of palm leaves, learning some hula, or throwing a spear like a hunter.
As the sun sets, the buffet opens and your mouth waters at the beautifully arranged tropical bounty. A highlight of the Chiefs Luau is kalua pig cooked the traditional way: in an ‘imu, an underground oven lined with hot lava stones. The pork is covered with vegetables and wrapped in leaves before it is lowered into the pit and cooked for hours. Watch the impressive ceremony as the oven is opened and the tender, steaming pork is lifted from the ground.
Traditional flavors on the menu also include lomi lomi salmon, poi, and tropical fruits. These exotic treats are complemented by island staples including sauteed fish, steamed rice and fresh greens, so everyone can find the right mix of exotic and familiar for their palate.
Once your appetite is satisfied, it’s time to sit back, relax, and enjoy the evening’s entertainment. Chief Sielu’s show is famous around the islands as a unique display of Polynesian music and dance. Those who feel like dancing are welcome to join in the celebration of island life. A special moment for couples is a dance by the light of torches as the Chief himself sings. The breathtaking fire-knife dance provides a thrilling climax to the show.
Just Add Adrenaline!
The Chief’s Luau keeps you entertained from the afternoon until well after sunset, but to really make a day of it—and get your appetite in high gear—you can combine your luau with ziplining at Coral Crater, the most adrenaline-inducing place on the leeward side of Oahu. The ziplines range between 300 and 900 feet in length, and with the most modern braking systems, safety equipment, and professional staff, are safe for the whole family. Ziplining at Coral Crater not only provides you with a heart-pounding thrill, it also offers unforgettable views of the tropical landscape from a whole new perspective.
Combining a zipline tour with a luau gives you everything in one day: outdoor adventure, cultural experiences, new flavors for your taste buds, an unforgettable show, endless photo opportunities, and the party of a lifetime!
