The camel ride we did there was quite short, but you may be able to pay for longer ones.
If you're in the area, there's a nearby stream which is very popular to visit, a few minute drive away.

I also did rapelling at Eretz Bereishis.

Cofix, one of my favorite places :)
Yup, I find that their iced coffee is almost as good as expensive places, and it's great to have them on every corner.

As an FYI, I'm hearing good things about Escape rooms, and may be going to one in TLV this week. Here's a link to the room in Jerusalem.

Does anyone have a basic lunch special or early dinner special list compiled? someone just posted " Piccolino on Yoel Moshe Salomon, 12" there are tons of places, any way we can get this added to the WIKI. I found out after I went to Papagaio that if I would have come half hour earlier it would have been much cheaper and when paying for a number of people it sure adds up...

Unless they are opening and resealing bottles it is not. That's the advantage of cofix over any place on crack where you can get the same deal if you order enough - also in cofix you'll get Russian Standard as opposed to Finlandia or worse

Depends what you consider reliable. If an anonymous online forum is good enough for a halachik ruling for you then yes. If an Orthodox rav is then likely not
