“Beginning of the End” LOST Tour

Comes with video


Tue, May 23

“Beginning of the End” LOST Tour / After six seasons, the state’s beloved twisty, mindbend-y TV series–and cash cow–finally comes to an end: Sunday brings us the two-and-a-half hour finale of Lost–the show that somehow made black smoke the most threatening airborne substance on TV.

In addition to crazy parallel narratives, what we as Honolulu citizens will miss is seeing Jorge Garcia shuffling through Borders, Ian Somerhalder chilling at Indigo and Evangeline Lilly shopping at the now-gone Star Supermarket. Josh Holloway probably won’t miss the local who broke into his Hawaii Kai home, though.

Send the show out with a nuclear bang by doing the “Beginning of the End” LOST Tour at Kuoloa Ranch. It starts with the “LOST Jungle Expedition Tour,” followed by a bus tour of Ka’a’awa Valley, a hosted breakfast at the ranch house, and ends with a “wind-down” visit to Moli’i Gardens. Most of the familiar locations you will see aren’t accessible if you try to explore the area solo.

Don’t worry, it all ends in the early afternoon so you’ll have plenty of time to get back to your couches for the two-hour restrospective preceding the actual finale episode. Then there’s Jimmy Kimmel’s late night “Aloha to Lost” special. For fans, this is gonna be one heckuva long Sunday of Lost worship.

Kualoa Ranch, 49-560 Kamehameha, Hwy., Sun 5/23, 7:30am, $75, [www.kualoaranch.com], 237-7321
