Hawaii has been the backdrop for many blockbuster movies. Most of them have been filmed on Kauai and Oahu. On both islands you can take movie site tours.
On Oahu, numerous shows and movies have been filmed at Kualoa Ranch. Which ones were filmed there? To name just a few — Hawaii Five-0, LOST, 50 First Dates and the Jurassic series — all used Kualoa Ranch. If you visit the ranch, you will start to recognize it.
We took three tours at Kualoa Ranch that all showed some part of movie sets. Here are our video overviews:
