With the Aloha State’s mixing of cultures, it’s no surprise that many different beliefs and storytelling traditions made it to these shores. So, it follows that there are many different ghost story traditions that dwell here as well. For those looking for a spine-tingling experience, try a tour that journeys to some of the haunted spaces on the island. Ranging from highly spiritual to mostly colloquial, all of these tours are based in the lore of the people who’ve called Hawai‘i home.
Native Hawaiian storyteller, Lopaka Kapanui, shares his knowledge of Hawaiian history and lore in his MYSTERIES OF HAWAI’I tours. Known for his well-researched stories, these tours go beyond mere ghost stories, delving into the history and cultural significance of each site.
Come Halloween season, check out Dead End- The Apocalypse, a haunted drive-thru experience at Aloha Stadium throughout October. The spooky scenes take place outside the confines of your passenger vehicle (all riders must be in legal seating). Not intended for young audiences, find out more by visiting oahuhauntedhouse.com
