Holiday Trolley

Merry Christmas to all!

Every Christmas Downtown Honolulu comes alive with a festive holiday light show. This winter wonderland of lights and festivities is best enjoyed from the easy comfort of an open-air trolley…and McCully Shopping Center will have its very own Honolulu City Light Tour!

Our trolley to
ur includes a spin downtown to see Honolulu’s famous holiday lights along Beretania, Bishop, King, Alapai and Punchbowl Streets. Passengers will NOT be allowed to disembark however, you will get to enjoy a 30 to 45 minutes of carefree Holiday music while seeing all the Holiday Festivities.  
Every year we have an overwhelming response for our Trolley Rides so we have a few new rules to follow to help make this a fun and enjoyable night for all. Please see how to get tickets below.


Tickets Available through merchants loyalty program.  Trolley rides are scheduled for Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, December 17th, 18th and 19th – 6:3opm ~ 7:15pm ~ 8:00pm ~ 8:45pm. We invite all to come stand in line in our standby line if you don’t have tickets, we will allow on all those we can accommodate without tickets the night of.  First come first serve basis. .  (Standby line will be on the Diamond Head side of the flag pole with a first come first serve basis.  Please come at least 30 minutes before your designated trolley ride you would like.  Once everyone is seated for that ride what ever available seats will be filled with our standby line.) 

Once you have tickets please be at the Center and line up on the Ewa side flag pole at least 30 minutes before your designated ride.  We will board at 6:25 and once done with all ticketed line is filled we will open to our standby’s.

Trolley Rides are absolutely FREE!

As for the Merchant loyalty programs… each participating merchant will be issued a small amount of tickets to distribute to their loyal customers.  You may ask a merchant that you frequent if they have tickets to see about getting advanced tickets, otherwise they are on a first come first serve basis the night of the trolley ride. 

Otherwise the only way to get tickets will be to stand in line the night of the trolley ride that you would like. So if you want Monday’s 6:30 ride on the 17th of December I would suggest you stand in line around 5 or 5:30pm however, that is just a suggestion.
