“The Arrow” was the second DHARMA station on The Island, and was used as a refuge by the tail-section survivors of Oceanic Flight 815 (“The Other 48 Days,” Ep. 2×07). It is located on the grounds of Kualoa Ranch, which is home to many iconic “LOST” locations.
In October 2011, Ed Kos of Kos Tours, Inc. discovered this door and tunnel in Kaaawa at Kualoa Ranch (beneath the right side of the “Kissing Monkeys” rock formation).
