Who can resist spending the day with horses on the “backlot” of Oahu! Not me!
If you like horses and shows like Lost and Hawaii Five-0 or movies like 50 First Dates, Jurassic Park and Mike and Dave Need Prom Dates then this is your spot. Known as Hawaii’s Hollywood!
Located on the island of Oahu, Kualoa Ranch is a hidden paradise. It covers 4,000 acres and serves as a privately owned natural reserve and cattle ranch. Offering tours for visitors to explore the truly magical valley.
On our horseback riding tour we explored the Ka’a’awa Valley which is where most of movie and television filmings goes on. And man, you can see why movie choose this location. It’s absolutely breathtaking. A true hidden gem in paradise!
We saw areas where Lost was film like Hurley’ golf course, Godzilla’s footprints, epic locations from the filming of Jurassic Park, and the famous road in 50 First Dates where Adam Sandler’s character keeps trying to get Drew Barrymore’s attention.
Tours offered: horseback riding, ATV tours, zip lining, movie tours, and much more. Check out all the tours on their website.
I met some other friends at the ranch too. Wishing I could bring my new friends home!
Enjoy. Adventure awaits!
