Hop aboard a vintage school bus and take a photo of yourself at the infamous Jurassic Park fallen tree, the bunkers from both Jurassic World’s, the boneyard from KONG Skull Island, the scavenger hunting grounds from Finding ‘Ohana, Godzilla’s footprints, see many other locations including the famous “penguin” road site from 50 First Dates, and numerous Hawaii Five-O and some LOST areas, like Hurley’s golf course! You might even see a filming in progress! You will also stop at an amazing WWII army bunker, built entirely into the side of the mountain range. There you’ll find movie posters, props and memorabilia from lots of the movies filmed at Kualoa through the years, as well as some cool WWII artifacts and exhibits.

We actually wanted to book a package but those were sold out. However we really really enjoyed this tour ..I think the duration was just perfect for families with little kids, it was fun to ride a school bus ..forget about movies ..natural beauty of this ranch is stunning, mountains, ground, drives, ocean view everything actually magical and every single turn is beautiful. Our guide was nice, very knowledgeable and helpful ..she wanted to make sure everybody is enjoying safely, took great pictures of ours.

We took a tour on a large forest green bus with our infant and two kids, ages 9 and 11. The views were spectacular! Kids got to see where the tv show, LOST, and Jurassic Park were filmed… and we got off the bus here and there to take pics. You have to get to the ranch an hour before the tour starts, as it takes time to park your car and find your tour (lots of different types of tours at the ranch). Book in advance, as space fills up fast! Worth every penny.

I loved our guide. Very knowledgeable and friendly. I was a little bit lost with some of the movies since I haven’t watched them all. But because of the way the tour guide described everything, makes me want to watch them all. Highly recommended if you want to enjoy spectacular views.
