Running With the Dinosaurs – Kualoa Ranch Oahu


Dinosaurs exist, and they live with King Kong and some horses and cows. I saw this with my own eyes at Kualoa Ranch in Oahu.

Kualoa Ranch is where they filmed Jurassic Park(remember the stampede?) and Jurassic World, also, Kong: Skull Island, Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle, 50 First Dates, and over ninety other Hollywood films.

We were able to ATV for a couple of hours around a real World War II bunker, movie sets, and scenes from Jurassic Park.
While I wasn’t there to learn, I was schooled on a few things:

Almost one hundred movies were filmed at Kualoa Ranch.
My thumb is all that’s needed to accelerate an ATV.
Kualoa Ranch is privately owned, originally purchased for $8000.
You can get married at the ranch.
There’s a World War II bunker that shot anti-aircraft weapons here.
T-Rex sightings still happen (see video)

Ziplining, horseback riding, bus tours, and VIP private tours are also available so no one is left out. Cats, they also have cats.

Adventuring around dinosaurs, giant apes, war relics, and cats with a coastal breeze is the perfect way to spend the in the hidden valleys of Oahu. All these things exist in harmony even with humans at Kualoa Ranch.

Have you ever been to Kualoa Ranch? If so, what did you think? Also, what’s your favorite Jurassic Park movie? It has to be the first or last one right? No one ever says Lost World or Part 3…
