Location: Nadav Baskind St 12, Rishon LeZion
Funtopia- was really cool! Also the staff are really great, the place is clean, well organised and the staff make sure safety comes first! Also if you wanna climb wear sporty clothes..sounds obvious but you need the flexibility.’
Entry is for children age 4+ and over 15kg. (For older children, iClimb is under the same roof and you can play at both!)
A fun climbing wall – not as easy as it looks but such great, fun exercise.
Wear sports shoes and sensible clothing.

We took 5 children to Boulderland/Funtopia in Kfar Saba. Disclaimer – iClimb is a newer larger branch of Boulderland and Funtopia in Kfar Saba. The Funtopia there has more walls and a big slide. This review is for the Kfar Saba branch but is the same idea as the Rishon branch!
We arrived for opening on a Friday morning and enjoyed having the place pretty much to ourselves for the first hour or so.
Our youngest was 4, which is definitely the youngest age they allow and she was totally not interested in joining in. I noticed there was an outdoor area she could have played in but luckily she was happy to watch. My other children, age 6,8,10,12 had the most incredible time. In Boulderland itself, climbers do not wear a harness and simply climb freely and see what they can do. My children really amazed themselves and successfully managed to climb quite high and loved jumping back onto the huge mattresses below.
For very little extra cost you can also get entry for Funtopia, which for these ages is just fantastic. They are attached to a harness and given some instructions from one of the guides. Then they challenged themselves with the fun themed climbing walls. They competed against each other in races, and loved every minute. These are kids who have been afraid of similar activities to this before but because of the themes they forgot how high they were climbing and got really in to it. They realised that coming down with a harness is actually part of the fun and really did well.
