This was unlike anything I have ever been too. Nothing new and heart stopping- other than the chair swing, however a very cool day out.

Ride the ferris wheel, grab a few snacks or drinks, ride a few other rides then relax for dinner at an excellent restaurant! Perfect afternoon and evening especially if your family is with you! Have fun, we did!!

Prater park is big and green and free.You notice loads of joggers, dog walkers and children.It includes a major football stadium and a trotting race track but its fame really rests in the massive funfair and the venerable big Ferris wheel. I rode in its wooden cabin and looked out at the massive Victorian steel work with bolts and rivets.... More

I had a lot of fun! I really enjoy these kind of rides, so I was acting like a child! I forgot the names of the rides, but I think if you're in Vienna and you want some adventure - this is the place to go. It was a bit pricy, but I didn't mind it that much. And remember... More

Another James Bond destination in Vienna (The Living Daylights) and also famous in The Third Man this is a must visit for film buffs and fun fair lovers alike. The big ferris wheel is €9 to go on.

I was lucky to see Octoberfest there in October of 2013 and comparing two Octoberfests (the original one in Munich and this one) I can't choose the best one! I could see the same amount of fun there: singing, dancing, total socializing by members of families and groups of friends. The whole big park seemed to be a hospitable affable... More

Went to ride on the the Riesenrad - famous giant wheel still operational even though built in 1897! Good fun with views of the rest of the amusement park, lively place and lots to do. Took the miniature train for a ride around the green open areas.Something there for everyone and worth a visit.

As an adult travelling solo I had but one reason to visit the Prater--to ride the Riesenrad. I'm a huge fan of The Third Man and knew I couldn't visit Vienna without riding this glorious relic of bygone times, even my fear of heights couldn't stop me. Fortunately it moves at a very slow pace and the cars are enormous... More

Very nice amusement park. Each atraction is paid seperately.One of the best is the high rollercoaster - its hight and velocity are amasing.

We wanted to make sure we included activities that kids were interested in as part of our trip (apart from the regular tourist attractions). The kids were simply thrilled with the rides. You pay for the individual rides. There is no discount irrespective of a number of tickets unlike some of the other amusement parks. You need to have a... More
