History
Kahunaville was started by David Tuttleman in 1993 when he purchased a warehouse on the shore of the Christina River and converted it to a Nightclub. By 2000 Tuttleman's Adventure Dining Inc. had 7 locations, each with a Hawaiian theme complete with animatronic turtles and waterfalls.1 Each location also contained an arcade operated by Pocket Change America Inc. until the end of 2000 when most of Pocket Change was acquired by Namco2, 3 In April 2008 a fire destroyed the original location and was later turned into a children's museum.4 The last location, inside Treasure Island Las Vegas, closed in February 2016.5
