What are Honu ika Moana?
Honu ika Moana are actually two slides put together side by side. Their full names are a little on the long side: Honu of the Honu ika Moana and – you guessed it – ika Moana of the Honu ika Moana.
Let’s touch on each of them individually:
Honu: ride the underwater currents on a sea turtle, just like the ancient Waturi people used to. This multi-person animal raft speeds up two massive walls, through ocean mists, and down into “sparkling” pools.
Ika Moana: ride the ocean waves on a whale, just like the ancient Waturi people used to. This multi-person animal raft sprays water on its passengers from its center – made to look like the whale’s blowhole – while it twists and turns along the waterway.
