Kalaeloa Play Day: Adventure, Music, And Plenty Pork

Thrifty adventure seekers will be taking it easy Saturday night. Sunday brings Kalaeloa Play Day, a quad-athlon of live-action sports.

What: Kalaeloa Play Day and First Annual Kalua Pig Festival
When: Sunday, June 10, 10am-8pm
Where: Coral Crater Adventure Park (map) and other Kalaeloa locations.

For tickets priced at $154.99 (adults) and $129.99 (kids), these brave souls will get:

If you’ve not been adding along, that’s $190 in value for the $154.99 adult ticket. The part these adventurers can’t put a price on? A day the family will never forget.

For those not feeling up to a full day of action, each of these Kalaeloa mini-adventures offer special discounts all day, no ticket required.

After ziplining, go-kart racing, simulated war, and bowling, how will folks replace all the calories they’ve lost?

To meet this critical public health need, Coral Crater Adventure Park is hosting the 1st Annual Kalua Pig Festival.

An imu shall bring forth a bounty of delicious pork. Local chefs will spin their own Kalua-pig-based specialties. Stories of zipline thrills, go-kart crashes, battle kills, and bowling strikes shall be swapped.

Then as the sun sets, Maunalua will provide a live soundtrack. The trio will play their award-winning mix of traditional and contemporary Hawaiian music for all to hear.

It’s free to attend the Kalua Pig Festival, which runs from noon-8pm, though there will be a charge for food. The hope is to make it an annual event. For now, the food/schedule details are as follows:


  • Vash and MJ Catering: Hawaiian Plates with Kalua Pig
  • Guadalajara Tacos: Mexican-Style Kalua Pig Tamales
  • Tasty Treats: Caribbean-Style Kalua Pig Plantain Sliders
  • Jamba Juice: Smoothies and Acai Bowls

Entertainment Schedule

5:30pm: Halau ʻO Kaululauaʻe
6:00pm: Imu Demonstration
6:30pm: Maunalua

Attendance is sure to grow. Hunt Company, which bought 500 acres of Kalaeloa from the Navy, plans to start building the first of 4,000 new homes next summer, according to this week’s Pacific Business News. That’s a lot of potential zipliners, or at least kalua pig eaters.
