At Ala Moana Center, play isn't only for children—it's a state of mind, a heightened level of curiosity intended for all. Ala Moana’s many adult play offerings include a virtual reality roller coaster, as well as cultural experiences including Shirokiya Japan Village Walk—a replica of a traditional Japanese town, complete with dining concepts. A 20-foot climbing structure encourages visitors to play and explore all that the world's largest open-air shopping center has to offer.
