If you’re looking for a good scare this Halloween season, make your way to Haunted Plantation, Hawaii’s scariest haunted attraction and one of the top haunts in America.
Featured on Syfy and The Travel Channel, Haunted Plantation has been Hawaii’s premiere haunted house attraction for 12 years, drawing thousands of visitors from across the island. Located on a plantation that is said to be haunted by real spirits, you will walk through multiple houses on the property, taunted by multiple frights along the way.
If my memory is correct, we last went to the Haunted Plantation in 2015, and we just went again this past Saturday!
Ticket purchase is open at 6:15pm, a bit earlier than the starting time. General admission is $15, Fast Pass is $20, and VIP + Front of the Line Access is $30. Let me tell you that VIP is definitely worth it for a couple reasons:
1. With VIP you get a secret room(s) that general admission/fast pass doesn’t get! It’s a small, new addition this year and it was the most terrifying part of the plantation for me, and Jarden loved it! There are limited amounts of this ticket, so if you wanna get in on it, try to go early!
2. Because of the VIP extra you do have a small wait, but you pretty much get to skip the entire line, so it’s definitely worth it – you’ll save SO much time. When we went there were about 1000+ people!
Without giving away major spoilers, I’ll relive our creepy AF experience! As soon as you park and walk to the entrance, you can hear the screams from the various plantation victims, which isn’t very comforting lol. You are put with other groups next to you in line, which I like because I don’t think I would have survived if it was just us two – my primary defense mechanism is sandwiching myself between others.
You first enter through a corrugated metal tunnel, which is pitch black and always reminds me of Jeepers Creepers. Oh, and did I mention a big theme this year is CLOWNS?! Yeah, watch out AHS fans, just gonna leave it at that.
There are a bunch of plantation houses to walk through, and I’m happily surprised at how long the entire thing was. Each house seemed to get increasingly scary and hard to shield myself from, with creepy actors that like to sneak up on you and breathe down your neck – (SO DISTURBING), giants that pop out at you with their various weapons, and girls that hang from places that people shouldn’t hang from.
The actors have some of the best special FX makeup I’ve seen, and there are a ton of them – no shortage of scares here! There are also some crazy props and devices that distort things a bit, adding to the scare factor. (Of course, there are tongs of fog machines, low lighting, and lots of jumpy surprises!)
We had an amazing time as always, and we like that each year there is something new that makes the plantation better and better. We are now officially in the Halloween Spirit!
