This attraction uses a kitschy method of film and shaking seats try to simulate going through history layer by layer. The history is superficial and of questionable accuracy. They should have spent their money hiring some good writers, rather than installing shaking seats. Too bad,...More

Don't expect Disney with the Time Elevator - this is a show that could be great but is rather unsophisticated. The idea is that you are in an elevator that crashes and you end up on a tour through time. However, you don't actually end...More

On this virtual tour through earthen layers of archaeology, you get a crash course in Jewish history and the importance of the city of Jerusalem and the nation of Israel. It's both informative and entertaining. (Be prepared for the earthquakes!)

The movie about the history of Jerusalem was great and the moving chairs added to the whole experience which was just great. Highly recommended for tourists from outside of Israel who want to learn a bit about this unique city.

Traveling with family so this had been added to the list. Grungy location and super cheesy. Skip this and just walk the Old City.
