Kualoa Ranch - Jurassic Valley Zipline
We’ve been zip lining several times and our adventure yesterday was one of our favorites! The zip lines were great, safety was top priority and the landscape was beautiful. The best part of our activity were the men that ran the adventure. They were fun, friendly, personable and respectful.

Kualoa Ranch - Jurassic Valley Zipline
The zipline crew of Mac, Marc, and Gabe were very professional and friendly. It was my husband’s first zipline and the crew was able to reassure him of the safety of the event.

Kualoa Ranch - Hollywood Movie Sites Tour
It was an excellent get away from busy Honolulu, Kimo our tour guide was very good and kept us all entertained. We will come back someday to experience the other tours. The cafe offered some really good and affordable food. We took an Uber ride to and from the ranch, if you rent a car you can drive the rest of the area which was beautiful. Mahalo

Kualoa Ranch - Hollywood Movie Sites Tour
What a wonderful way to spend an afternoon! Great way to see part of the North Shore of Oahu while learning about movies, movie-making, Hawaiian history and culture, and Hawaiian preparations for WWII. Visit to a WWII bunker was very interesting. The wild beauty of the ranch reminds me of Kauai. The staff members were friendly and knowledgeable and there are many different options for tours.

How to Get There

The property is set 25 miles (40 kilometers) north of Waikiki Beach and about 11 miles (18 kilometers) north of Kaneohe on Oahu’s windward side. It’s possible to take public transit via The Bus from Waikiki (Bus 55 runs past the property), but most visitors drive themselves along the scenic coastal roads or choose a tour that includes hotel pickup and roundtrip transportation.

Show all


When to Get There

The ranch is open daily from 8:30am to 6pm. While each tour departs several times per day, active tours—like ATV riding and ziplining—are best done in early morning or late afternoon to avoid midday heat. Year-round temperatures on Oahu are almost always between 70°F (21­°C) and 80°F (27­°C), so there is no bad time of year to visit, though rain showers are most common between November and February.

Movie Magic at Kualoa Ranch

Kualoa Ranch’s natural beauty is so scenic that its backdrop has been featured in numerous Hollywood films and TV shows. Choose a movie site tour and hop aboard a green bus for an off-road ride into cinematic history. Take photos in one of theLost bunkers, hide behind the log that shieldedJurassic Park visitors from stampeding dinosaurs, and check out the Hukilau Cafe, where Adam Sandler’s Henry first met Drew Barrymore’s Lucy in50 First Dates. The ranch offers a 90-minute standard movie tour, a 2.5-hour premier movie site tour, and a special 90-minute Jurassic Park Jungle Expedition, all with multiple daily departures.
