Eilat and the Negev Sights

Updated 05/20/2013

Fodor's Review

This gigantic fairy-tale castle looms behind the hotels on North Beach. Kings City, a biblical theme park on three levels, offers three distinct sections of sophisticated entertainment, and there's a high-flying water ride to boot. The Cave of Illusions has, among other interactive diversions, hands-on games that test your mental acuity, a jail to test your ability to escape, a huge maze, and a large, endless kaleidoscope. Next, you reach the Bible Cave in

an elevator that descends almost 200 feet underground to an immense cavern where human-like robots reenact Bible stories about King Solomon and other tales. In the Journey to the Past you see 3-D films of pharaohs in ancient Egypt, and then there's the thrilling 10-minute waterfall ride that ends in a huge splash (you're in a boat). David's Spiral includes two slides, one of them 150 feet long. There's a kid-friendly restaurant, a café, a bar, and a gift shop, too. You'll need three to four hours to do this park justice. It's located at the end of the promenade, next to the eastern lagoon. Note that children less than 1 meter tall (about 3 feet) are not admitted, and the park is handicapped accessible. If your hotel has free Wi-Fi, order tickets in advance for a 20% discount.
