Two water parks scheduled for inauguration in Eilat over the next two to four years, are being developed. Luna Water Park, which will commence construction this year following the approval of the Eilat City Council and local Planning and Building Committee, is expected to open during the summer of 2019. The park has been designed across almost five acres of land on “Texas Ranch,” a now abandoned site in the Eilat Mountains that was once used as a film set location. The park will have around 30 water attractions, a two-story building with shops, a cafeteria and conference area, a 25-meter adult water slide, children’s area, wave pool and space for up to 3,500 visitors at one time.
A prehistoric themed water park, set to open in four years and located 4km north of Eilat, has received an investment of ILS 120 million from Israeli and international investors. Covering around 27 acres, the park will feature life-sized dinosaur figures, and special effects that add movement and sounds to live performances. The park will offer sporting facilities, slides, a water dance club, an enclosed playground for children, mini golf, bumper cars and a spa center with treatment pools and waterfalls, with space to host events for up to 25,000 people. The site has been designed as “environmentally friendly,” installing five acres of solar panels for electricity production and water recycling.
