Godzilla

While you’re exploring Kualoa Ranch, look out for Godzilla’s footprints! During filming, the 40-ft footprints were dug a few yards deep to increase the depth and showcase the monster’s size. However, after several cattle on the ranch tumbled into these holes, the ranch had to alter the depth. Even though they’re slightly different from the ones in the movie, you can still see these enormous footprints!
