GGs at the PCC – North Shore, Hawaii

img_5770Post about the Polynesian Cultural Center and we will get to that.

Cliff & Dina Goodman contributed 50% of the genes of which the Goodman Giants are comprised. We honor and respect these Goodmans, the parents/grandparents of Giants.

To honor these 50% Giants we all went to Hawaii to celebrate their 50th anniversary. When we say all, it was not just the two being celebrated and the 6 Giants. The cute couple’s kids and grandkids all joined them in Hawaii – 26 in all. Great times were had.

Clearly the Polynesian Cultural Center (PCC) was a great activity choice since the center was also celebrating 50 years. At PCC there is observation fun as well as join in on stage excitement.

Want a coconut? Just climb the tree and get it. No Giants climbed – it was an amazing sight to watch the muscular man of funny one liners ascend faster barefooted than any of us could climb a staircase. On the ground he broke the shot-put in half, and by hand he used coconut leaves to produce milk from the fruit flesh. He poured out the liquid in the center at the start and made fun of the coconut water. Why no videos or photos of this fete? Visit them and see for yourself: posting a video of this would be be a spoiler as some things are best seen 1st in person.

Raise your hand and volunteer and you just might find that you are the one Smurf looking blue shirt wearer called on stage. No training required as you will see in the video:

And the fun continues:

Want to get a temporary tattoo? Many do… Want a tattoo on your face that looks like you were run over by a motor bike? Leave that to Taco:


Below is our honorary Goodman Giant. The Giant kids call him Uncle Baby because he is the youngest of the Cliff & Dina family:


Fun with extended family at a wonderful venue made it easy for the Goodman Giants to rate the Polynesian Cultural Center:

6.0 Goodmans

All 6 loved it!

Insider tip from our activities expert: Splurge for the Ambassador Luau Package if you can, it will make it so you can get two days worth of visiting in within one long, event filled, exciting day. The tour guide makes it so you will see the best parts of the best shows, that for an additional 60% is worth it. We can’t imagine how we could have see so much if we chose a non-guided option.
