“Expensive and hard to find”
Review of Shvil Hatapuzim

Shvil Hatapuzim
Reviewed January 11, 2014

We are visitors from Australia who wanted to visit this attraction because we had found it on things for kids to do in Israel.
We found the website but there are only very vague driving directions, with a note to call Yoav for directions. But what does a visitor do who has no local phone.

For those wishing to drive there is a small road to the right off highway 65 travelling east just before you hit a gas station, about 3Km from the intersection of highway 2, travelling north.

We found the entry cost quite high, especially considering a number of the activities were closed for winter, or were under renovation. Children ages 2 - 15 ILS64, everyone else ILS42, so for our family of 6 the cost was ILS296.
At least 1 of the attractions is restricted to children over 1.3m tall; eliminating both our children.

Overall the kids had fun, but it was busy because it is not open that often, and they missed many of the activities.

Interestingly the guide given to you when you enter has a map showing the location; not much use if you've already found it, something it took us more than 15 minutes to do.

This is by far the nicest adventure with young kids. It's an old citrous orchard turned into wonderland by hand - an older mechanic and his son, who created all the attractions themselves. There's nothing of the ubiquitous stuff, everything is unique. Teens are too old, though. Delicious both summer with water attractions and winter with oranges to pick.

Good attractions, for a wide variety of children ages (even very young).
But come early, before it's too crowded...

We took the kids... they had a great time.
We had to force them to leave.
We had some discount via Histadrum Hamorim but it worth the money even full price.
