Superland is an amusement park in Rishon LeZion, Israel. Superland covers an area of 94 acres (38 ha) and has three roller coasters, three wet and dry facilities, a cablecar, and a bungee jumping "Skycoastr."

Superland opened to the public in 1991 and is one of the main amusement parks in Israel, along with Luna Park, Tel Aviv and Zapari Birds park in Tel Aviv.

There has been recent controversy over an alleged policy of separating days when Jewish vs. Arab schools could have trips to the facility. Superland claims this was done at the request of the schools themselves (on both the Jewish and Arab sides) but both Israeli Jews and Israeli Arabs have criticized that the park should have rejected such requests.
