Israeli Theme Park Introduces Wi-Fi Enabled Donkeys

A historical theme park in Israel is making it easier for tourists to tweet and share photos of their visit by installing free Wi-Fi.

That may not sound ridiculous, but Wi-Fi transmitters are to be attached to the donkeys which roam the site.

Kfar Kedem, a periodic amusement park in the town of Hoshaya, recreates the way in which a Jewish settlement would have looked in the first and second centuries AD, including rustic buildings, actors in period costumes and donkeys.

The park has around thirty donkeys, with five of the animals having Wi-Fi transmitters. The park’s owners hope that the introduction of wireless networks will encourage visitors will upload photos of their time there and share them across social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter.

Although the scheme has so far only seen a limited introduction it could be expanded. Menachem Goldberg, the park’s manager, told Israeli newspaper the Times of Israel that: “In the future we’ll consider equipping all of the donkeys with the necessary apparatuses as necessary”.
