“Very expensive, very dissapointing”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2013

For 60 ILS per person (about 17$) I'd expect more. It's a 30 minutes ride, that all. After visiting Disney and Europa Park, it's lame and expensive (Disney is about 60-70$ but you can spend a whole day there, with exciting rides). The ride is old and it feels old and worn. We took the "Human Body" ride, and there was absolutely nothing new to learn. Maybe the history of Jerusalem is more interesting, but I wouldn't pay again to find out. The children might have liked it better (they like everything, but pay nothing...), but I suggest - save your money.

“Fun and educational”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013

This was a little cheesy but we enjoyed it anyway. The seats tilt around to make you feel the motion you see on the screen. The movie was interesting and informative. We are a middle-aged couple who liked it and I imagine that children will love it.

“Very good for children”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2013

This gives you a little historical background and understanding of what you will be seeing. Especially good with kids--ours were 9 and 11 and they enjoyed this event.
