No coasters there... but what do you need coaster for when you're sipping mai-tais on the beach in paradise?

Or surfing a 30' wave? That's gotta be more scary than any coaster on the planet!

There are some FECs,but most of the "big" iron is owned by E.K.Fernandez Shows, Hawaii's one and only carnival.

They do have Sea World type park, and 2 waterparks in the Honolulu area. But, Jeff is right, the beach and tanned hula dancers rule.

Real estate much too expensive.

I lived in Hawaii for 16 years, and at one time there was talk about building a park there. It was to be called Castle Park, but nothing ever came of it as far as I know. While tourism is one of the biggest (if not THE biggest) industry in Hawaii, it was thought that the "typical" tourists generally aren't interested in amusement parks. (The tourists from Japan tend to be the honeymooners or others on completely pre-planned tours. The tourists from the US Mainland tend to be older folks, namely, those who have saved up all their lives for this once-in-a-lifetime trip. Not that all tourists fit into these categories, of course.) I doubt whether the Hawaii population could add enough customers for a really big park. Anyway, when I lived in Hawaii, I had to travel to Magic Mountain (before Six Flags took it over) for my rides.

Heh... tourists are funny there. The guy who carried our bags in the Sheraton Kauai jokingly said that they refer to tourists as "newlywed or mostly dead."

There has been talk about building one, although I personally think it is not a good move. I don't think there are enough people in Hawaii to make it economically worthwhile, and I think it is too expensive to travel to Hawaii for most people just to go to a theme park.

Here's a link...
