Exciting for all ages, specially for kids !!

Time Elevator.
Went to Time Elevator.
The movie hall is small may be about 100 odd seats. This is because all the seats are dynamic seats which can move up–down, tilt left-right, forward-backward and Up -down synchronised with audio visual presentation on the screen to make you feel as if you are moving, falling and other sensations as seen on the panoramic screen and heard on surround sound system. Which may be harmful to people with health problems.
That is why one is told in advance that pregnant ladies, people with heart or any health problems should occupy "safe seats" which are "static"- do not move..
The movie is 30 minutes of action packed rip roaring journey through 3000 years of history of Jerusalem. With script by renowned archaeologists and historians and on screen narration and acting by famous actor Chaim Topol.
The movie takes you from the period of construction first temple in Jerusalem by King Soloman. Through the destruction of first temple, second temple by David, of the city and changes it goes through over all of thoese 3000 years from Solomon to the roman to Christians to Muslims right up to the war of 1967.
It is exciting experience. Due to audio-visual and dynamic seats, you have sensations of actually moving at breakneck speeds, zooming up or plunging down in deep abysses.
Besides exciting it is also a learning experience as you are given information of 3000 years of Jerusalem history in a concentrated capsule of 30 mts !!

Fun for any age

A number of cities have this kind of tourist attraction which is an integrated audio-visual and theme-park ride experience. It presents a high level history of the city and country suitable for all ages.

There are two different shows so check the schedule. Some may be sold out, but you can reserve in advance. Although I bought a ticket just 5 minutes before a 4pm showing, the show just before was packed with school kids. It seems a very popular place to spend an hour, especially for families.

Ask for a headset programed for English or another language.

A very nice idea that explains to children in a tangible and experiential way the history of Jerusalem ...
But must make a new movie with better quality.

A horror for small kids
Aug 2019
As the age limit is 5 I was sure that the the content wil be suitable for that age. My kids came out totally traumatized, they have never before been exposed to so much violence on a screen. From J.C. being nailed to the cross to blood covered people on the floor to a corpse of a young buy being carried - it was terrible. Definitely nothing for kids under 12!!

And btw, the audio was bad, the screen quality was mediocre.

A waste of time and money

All is terrible: the sound, the picture quality, and the contents. Even the usher fell asleep during the screening (the seat movement seem to have no purpose other than to keep you awake). Avoid at all costs.

Dishonest, disorganized and disappointing

I purchased tickets to experience the Time Elevator for myself and my three children. We arrived at the venue well in advance of the screening time. Unfortunately, we were forced to wait a considerable amount of time before being told that the show would be delayed by an unspecified period of time. When I enquired about having my tickets exchanged, we were met with unhelpful and rude staff. We ultimately decided to exchange our tickets and return to see the show the next day.
The following day when we arrived, we explicitly asked whether the show would be in English. We were not told that the show was entirely in Hebrew, nor were we given headsets (which apparently were to be provided to English speakers). Needless to say, we spent a considerable amount of money to watch a film that we could not understand.

Notwithstanding our bad experience, which could have simply been a case of unfortunate luck, the show itself was mediocre at best. The film itself felt cheap and the overall experience was tedious.

Overall, the Time Elevator was GROSSLY OVERPRICED to the point where it was almost a scam. I would STRONG advise that you avoid this attraction, and instead spend the money and time appreciating the history of Jerusalem first hand.

Very mediocre movie, only suitable for Hebrew-speakers. The staff said it was in English but simultaneous translation on headphones which they don't make you aware of. Performance we booked for was delayed, so we came back the next day.
So many things to do in Jerusalem. Avoid this.
