The One Small Town In Hawaii That Transforms Into A Terrifying Halloween Wonderland
Located in the center of Oahu south of the H-1 freeway and north of Pearl Harbor’s West Loch is the city of Waipahu, one of Hawaii’s most dangerous cities. The city is also home to the Hawaii Plantation Village, an outdoor history museum that transforms into a terrifying Halloween attraction every October.
The village tells the story of the island’s sugar cane workers and life on the plantation circa 1850 to 1950, as well as the history of immigration to Hawaii, and features restored buildings, replicas of various plantation structures, and a quite a few ghosts as well. Yep, this Halloween attraction is actually haunted.

Don’t miss this spooky event: the Haunted Plantation will be open October 21, 22, 27, 28 and 29 from 7 to 10 p.m., and Halloween night from 7 to 9 p.m. The haunted attraction is located at 94-695 Waipahu Street, and general admission is $15. You can also pay $20 for fast passes, or $30 for VIP tickets, which allows you access to two secret rooms. There are no presale tickets, and once capacity is met, you will be turned away: the ticket booth accepts cash only and opens at 6:15 p.m. before the haunt opens at 7 p.m.
The haunted village is not recommended for the faint of heart, children under 13 years old, pregnant women, or those with heart or breathing conditions. For more information, visit their website.
