Travel Agent breaks down three fun events in Hawaii for clients who are looking for a cool costume party or just a good old-fashioned scare while vacationing in the Aloha State for Halloween

Halloween at the Hyatt

For perhaps the most happening Halloween party in the vibrant Waikiki area, tell clients about Halloween at the Hyatt Regency Waikiki Beach Resort, an annual costume party taking place at 8 p.m. on October 31.

This year’s them is “League Up!” Guests are encouraged to dress up as a character from the upcoming fall superhero movie, “Justice League,” for a chance to win up to $2,000 in cash and prizes.

An official Halloween at the Hyatt after party will also be held at The District Nightclub.

Pre-sale tickets will be available for $10 for regular entry and $20 for VIP entry. VIP entry will include a glow stick, a “Fast Pass” to skip the lines, and a candy pouch.

Bottle service for tables of four will be available for $300 plus tax and gratuity, while VIP Cabanas with seating for a group of 10 will be available for $1,500 plus tax and gratuity. 

All tickets will be sold at http://events.racesauce com. For VIP and bottle service reservations, email [email protected] or call 808-216-4298. Self-parking and valet service will be available at the Hyatt.

Hawaii Plantation Village's Haunted Plantation

And excellent option for families, Hawaii Plantation Village’s Haunted Plantation is considered one of the scariest haunted house experiences in Hawaii. 

Due to heavy attendance the past 11 years, the plantation has decided to open for 10 nights. Guests will be chased and taunted by “spirits of Hawaii” that are located in the Hawaii Plantation Village. 

The Haunted Plantation experience is available from October 13–15, 20–22, 27–29 and on Halloween night. It is open from 7 to 10 p.m. on all nights except Halloween when it closes at 9 p.m.

There is a $15 general admission. Children under 13 are not allowed and children 16 and under need adult supervision.

Celebrate Halloween in Hawaii at The Shops at Wailea

The Shops at Wailea on Maui has announced that its Keiki Halloween at The Shops will take place on Sunday, October 29 from 3 to 6 p.m. The event includes a keiki (children) and pet costume contest, prizes and a special trick-or-treat.

“We created this free event for the entire ohana (family) to enjoy Halloween festivities,” said Brian Yano, general manager of The Shops at Wailea, in a written release. "This fun event welcomes grandparents, parents, children and even pets to participate in a costume contest and trick-or-treat in style.”

Families and their children are invited to The Shops beginning at 3 p.m. for costume contest registration. The contest begins at 4pm and judges will award the winners at 5:30 p.m. with prizes. Contest categories include:

Keiki, Ages 0-2 tears
Keiki, Ages 3-5 tears
Keiki, Ages 6-10 Years
Ohana (Family)
Pets

After the contest, families and children are invited to stroll The Shops for a special trick-or-treat in their costumes.

In a continued effort to give back to the community, The Shops at Wailea supports a different Maui nonprofit each month with sixty percent of the special event parking fees going back to the nonprofit. 

A portion of the parking proceeds from Keiki Halloween will benefit Women Helping Women, a local Maui non-profit dedicated to ending domestic violence. The four-hour special event parking voucher is available for $5 and can be purchased at the non-profit’s parking table.

The Shops at Wailea is a shopping and dining destination on Maui with more than 70 boutiques, shops, restaurants and galleries. It is located in the heart of Wailea Resort.
