LOST Season Premier Brings Thousands to Waikiki
Over 12,000 dedicated “Lost” fans packed Waikiki’s famous white sandy beach Saturday night to be among the lucky few who got a chance to watch the first episode of Lost’s sixth and final season. Waikiki felt more like Hollywood complete with a red carpet, screaming fans, and stars (not including the ones above our heads). A thirty foot screen at the end of Waikiki Beach set the back drop for one of ABCs most watched television series. The rest of the world will have to wait until Tuesday, February 2, 2010, three days later to watch this action packed episode.Like most “Lost” fans, many people are anxiously awaiting the new season in hopes that many of their unanswered questions will finally have closure. You could feel the anticipation in the air moments before the episode illuminated the screen. Even after the episode concluded screaming fans still wanted more. Not to worry for those who were unable to attend the premiere, you still have more chances to experience “Lost.” Being that almost every episode was filmed on the island of Oahu; Discover Hawaii Tours can take you to many of the different film locations.
