(Blooloop) A $400m, Disney-style theme park that will be themed on the history of the Jewish people is in development in Israel.

Plaim Park (or Park of Wonders) is planned for Dimona, a southern town in the Negev desert. Initially, the park will cover 25 hectares featuring 16 major rides across five “worlds” – Oasis, World of Spirits, World of the Jewish nation, World of Society and World of Time.

“We are very good at many things in Israel – hi-tech, medicine – I think it is also time for us to be good at something that is fun and enjoyable,” Lea Malul, CEO of the theme park project told the Jerusalem Post.

The park and rides will be modelled after Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World Resort in Florida, however they will be themed to educate visitors on the Jewish people.
