The attraction was an immediate hit with its Hawaiian-themed musical show hosted by four macaws whose plumage matches their implied countries of origin. José is red, white, & green and speaks with a Mexican accent; Michael is white & green with an Irish brogue; Pierre is red, white, & blue and has a French accent while red, black, & white Fritz has a German accent. The birds have real feathers with the exception of the chest area which is covered in custom-woven cashmere, allowing the figures to “breathe” in a lifelike manner.
225+ talking, singing, and dancing birds, flowers, the magic fountain, tiki drummers and tiki totem poles perform “In The Tiki Room” by the Sherman Brothers and “Let’s All Sing Like the Birdies Sing.” The finale has them performing a rousing version of The Hawaiian War Chant. Exit music is an arrangement of Snow White’s “Heigh Ho” with lyrics thanking guests while encouraging them to exit quickly!
