We were picked up in a white Hummer at 7am for our 5 Hour Lost Tour. I thought it would be more appropriate if the Lost tours were conducted in a blue Volkswagen Van but I later figured out why we needed a Hummer (see video at the bottom of the post). We took off and right away our guide started pointing out places of interest in Waikiki and giving us some history of the island. We headed out of town and saw our first location, Anthony Cooper’s house, seen in Lost Season 1.
We saw the location of Jacob’s cabin. Of course it wasn’t there – Ilana ordered it to be set on fire in “The Incident, Part 1.” This is also the location where the smoke monster killed characters on two different occasions – Mr. Eko and the Pilot. Don’t worry, we kept our eyes out for the smoke monster and actually ran into it later in the tour (you will find out who from the Traveling Trio survived the smoke monster encounter in Part 2 of the Traveling Trio Lost Tour.)
The next stop was the Dominican Republic where Ben finds Sayid working for a charity organization and convinces him to come back to the Island.
As we drove to the next location we watched movie scenes from the locations we were about to visit!
At the next stop we saw locations from 50 First Dates, Godzilla and Lost. We saw Waikane Pier, Pala Ferry pier used by The Others in “Live Together Die Alone.”
We also saw Chinaman’s Hat, Mokolii Island. Chinaman’s Hat can be seen briefly when Michael and Walt leave the island in their boat.
The next stop, Kualoa Gardens, was the location for several television shows and movies. Off The Map (2011), Fantasy Island, the pre-wedding party from You, Me and Dupree, the African Village from Tears of the Sun, The Dominican Republic School from Lost Season 5, Nigerian Cantina where Eko kills 2 drug dealers, the Korean house where Sun visits Jin’s dad and scenes from Soul Surfer. The views were so beautiful we understood why so much filming takes place here.
We loved this amazing tree that was featured prominently in the Lost episode, “The Life and Death of Jeremy Bentham”.
Next we saw the location of the Submarine Pier. Of course the submarine wasn’t there but we did get to see it later in the tour.
We also saw the Lost Locations of the Korean Fishing Pier where Jin visits his dad and the Hydra Island Sub Pier where we saw Widmore’s Sub in Lost Season 6.
We saw so many amazing locations and we were not even at the main course yet – Kualoa Ranch! Doesn’t every Lost episode leave you hanging? Stay tuned for Part 2 of The Traveling Trio Lost Tour. In Part 2 of the Traveling Trio Lost Tour we will check out breathtaking Kualoa Ranch and find out why it is a popular film location for various movies and television shows!
