Valid forms of transportation with an Entry voucher are via walking, a non-motorized vehicle, rideshare/taxi, or carpooling with a Hawaiian Resident with State Issued ID.
I booked the wrong date or timeslot, could you please change my reservation?
Unfortunately reservation dates and times cannot be changed once the purchase has been processed. ALL SALES ARE FINAL. No refunds, no exceptions.
Does my Parking reservation provide entry to all passengers in my car?
No. You will need both a parking reservation and entry ticket for yourself and an entry ticket for the passengers in your vehicle.
If we purchased the 7:00am to 10:00am do we need to purchase another voucher to stay until 12:00pm?
Yes, multiple timeslots can be purchased to stay at the park for an extended period. In this situation a voucher for 7:00am to 10:00am and a voucher for 10:00am to 12:30pm will be needed.
My reservation states the time of entry is 10:00am-12:30pm. Does that mean I have to leave the park by 12:30?
Yes. You can enter the park anytime within your reservation timeslot but must leave the park once your reservation has ended.
Can I park there all day?
If you want to park all day, you’ll need to purchase vouchers for all the time you plan on visiting. If you want to be there from park opening until sunset, you’ll need to purchase all Four time slots. Note – not all time slots may be available on a given date.
