This is our third trip to Paradise Cove and our last. We love the luau. The Paradise Cove staff is wonderful. However, they choose to allow small children to take pictures with exotic birds (parrots, macaws). We allowed our children to wait in line to participate also. There are NO SIGNS warning us against the birds behavior and no waiver to sign. My 7 year old daughter was holding a bird on her finger but my three year old son was too nervous, so he chose to just stand next to her. The photographer’s bird got spooked and flapped his wings in front of my daughter causing her to lose balance and lower her hand with her bird. Her bird then flapped its wings and grabbed my son’s shirt and wouldn’t let go. He was screaming and when the photographer finally got the bird off of him, he had left a four inch bleeding scratch on his chest. The photographer was very annoyed at US about it and told the other photographer that my daughter “dropped the bird” and pointed towards the first aid station. I will say the first aid station was amazing and the men working there were wonderful and a huge help. However, we paid over $200 and left feeling nervous with a screaming toddler and are now afraid of a bird related infection or sickness. I understand the bird people are not Paradise Cove employees, but there needs to be a sign warning us that the birds can act up. I never would have let my kids participate had I known they were so temperamental. It really ruined the entire evening and could have been prevented with a sign.
