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.

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

We were there on a cloudy morning with a bit of rain. Weather was cold and the park was wet. My wife insisted of giving it a visit due to the famous Giant Ferris Wheel - the Wiener Riesenrad. She said that it is a lifetime ride and to feel the romance of Vienna (all because of the movie 'Before... More

We visited the amusement park during late afternoon in a weekday. Maybe it was just us, but the area did not feel like one we'd like to be at in the evening! The theme park was a good size, with plenty of rides, and plenty of repeats of the same kind of ride e.g. several ghost trains (some looked better... More

The rides are surprisingly fun, but due to space considerations, don't go expecting anything too large... The prices are a bit high, and there is no possibility of a single all-encompassing ticket, so take care if you plan on taking kids - who may want to ride a lot more than you are willing to spend. Even walking around is... More

The ferris wheel was too expensive at €9 each. The rest of the amusement park was not unlike any in the uk.

Prater is a mainstay of Vienna. Lots of traditional rides and some really scary ones. One that cycles around way up in the air. Ghost rides. Twisted mazes. A lot of diversity at the Prater. We had dinner right at the Prater.

I loved the Prater fun park, it was just old school fun! I went with a group I was travelling Europe with and had the best night. There is a really good variety of rides, from classics to totally original one of a kind rides. Myself and another girl tried as many as we could with our time. I also... More
