Israel's premier amusement park, 20 minutes south of Tel Aviv, is to some extent charming, yet it offers nothing more than the standard collection of roller coaster, flume ride (water ride on log flumes), river rafting ride (water ride on circular rafts), ferris wheel and carousels of various colors.
However, given that the next comparable theme park located in a country that allows Israeli passport holders visa-free entry is over 2,500 kilometers away – it's really true! – it's quite a good deal.
Walking around the park and listening to the cheerful locals, the unfamiliar Hebrew got all too often mixed up with the ever-repeated familiar word 'Disneyland', spoken aloud by kids and adults with longing eyes. Well, Superland, you're not in that league. But you don't pretend to be either. And that makes you respectable.
