SCREAM FOR FUN! Japan’s Ghost Bus Experience Restarts March 1 in Waikiki Special Two-Month Engagemen

HONOLULU – The thrills, chills, wide-eyed gasps, and screaming scary fun of Japan’s Ghost Bus experience is restarting March 1 and will be available for everyone to enjoy in Waikīkī through Halloween, including a special two-month engagement on weekends in Kapolei.

The Ghost Bus is a year-round thrill-seeking experience in Japan. Fans of horror films and zombie shows will find the Ghost Bus to be the ultimate haunted house on wheels, complete with sinister characters, ominous audio-visual sensory effects and an ever-present foreboding sense of fear and terror – all in the spirit of fun and creating memories to share with friends and family members.

From March 1 through April 29, the Ghost Bus will be scaring the devil out of everyone on weekdays, Monday through Friday, while parked in front of the Waikiki Beach Marriott.

In addition, on each weekend, Saturday and Sunday, during March and April and concluding on May 1, the Ghost Bus will be offering guests at Ka Makana Ali‘i mall in Kapolei a heart-thumping thrill available at no other shopping center in Hawai‘i.

Starting May 2 the Ghost Bus experience will return to the Waikiki Beach Marriott and be available for anyone brave enough to climb aboard through October 31, 2022.

Presented by JTB Hawai‘i, admission to the Ghost Bus experience is $15 ($13 for kamaaina) for ages eight and older. Each thrilling experience lasts about 15 minutes. Reservations for the Ghost Bus must be booked online at

The Ghost Bus opened in Waikīkī last fall but then closed temporarily in December to help prevent the spread of COVID-19, especially the highly infectious Omicron variant.
