Experience the aloha and mystery of the Hawaiian Islands as never before: Encounter our planet’s most active volcano on the world's largest screen! Discover how volcanoes have been shaping the people, history and culture of Hawai’i for centuries as we journey with a young Polynesian boy, traveling through time to encounter legendary figures of Hawaii. Meet King Kamahameha as he unifies the Islands with the help of an explosive eruption… Royal Chiefess Kapiolani who dares to defy the volcano goddess at the fiery crater's edge... and volcanologist Thomas Jaggar, founder of the Hawai’i Volcano Observatory, whose cutting-edge science is today credited with saving thousands of lives around the world.
