Theme Park Equips Donkeys with Wi-Fi!

Recommended Posts

Check out this totally amazing, and completely "TPR Approved" story!!!




Can’t get off your ass? No problem! These donkeys are wired

Forget killer coasters, 3-D imagery and Hollywood star power. Here's a theme park twist that's truly innovative.


An Israeli attraction described as a sort of Galilean Colonial Williamsburg has equipped its donkeys with Wi-Fi Internet access so that visitors can send real-time photos and messages as they ride through the Talmudic-era village.


"Our village has 30 donkeys, and we've equipped the first five with wireless routers that are attached to the donkey's body," park manager Menachem Goldberg told the newsletter Israel Hayom. "In the future we'll consider equipping all of the donkeys with the necessary apparatuses as necessary."


The attraction, Kfar Kedem, or Village of Yore, features costumed interpreters who depict Judean life starting in the first and second centuries.

I was just about to post this:



It's WiFi for your ass -- the animal kind -- and it's only available in Israel. Yes, as unreal and inappropriate as that proposition may seem, an historical amusement park located in the Middle Eastern country will offer tourists the opportunity to tweet, email and upload photos on-the-fly from the back of a burro. Known as Kfar Kedem, or Village of Yore (sounds exciting!), the unique attraction attempts to reenact life from the Common Era's First and Second centuries, albeit with a healthy dose of wireless internet. So far, only five of the village's 30 available donkeys are currently outfitted with routers, but park manager Menachem Goldberg's toying with an expansion to the rest of his "fleet." Sure, a biblical ren faire might not be your number one vacation destination, but if you're in the area, there's no way you can pass up this low-tech ride back in time.
