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 - Jungle Expedition Tour
We were a family of 9, all ages. The jungle adventure tour was amazing. So much fun and easily accessible for ages 6 to 70. The grandkids are still talking about how much they loved it. I would highly recommend the ranch and tour to everyone. Go early to enjoy all the other fun things to do on the ranch.

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.

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.
