This is a very run down tired amusement park on the outskirts of Vienna. Americans--do not waste your time, this is definitely not six Flags!! The old Ferris wheel is worthwhile but that's it. We went on a Wed evening and it was virtually empty except some unsavory characters. I did not feel safe at all. Unless you have very young kids who need some entertainment, avoid this attraction. Waste of an evening.

i chickened going on the wheel as it is very high and i suffer from vertigo but at night it is beautiful. i was wary of going at night as one reviewer said metro unsafe to linger but you can also take tram. full of families and some rides are so crazy just fun to watch. great cheap bites to eat on offer. great photo opps.

My son wanted to knock pyramids and try to win a stuffed toy.
The shop opener was encouraging him to throw he was initially helpful and never told us that each throw was one euro. After 15 throws he comes up with a figure of 48 and the insists we pay. We obviously refused and said he was not counting properly He became angry and violent and was threatening to unzip his jeans to take out his ... Not pleasant at all
A sly con on unsuspecting tourists
So avoid such shops rest of the rides are standard fare in any amusement park
Some of the ones like the glass maze are good
High roller coasters and lights and busy , not very clean or safe

Loved the rides. The highest swing chairs in the world were actually not that scary (110+m) but the unpredictable triple-arm ride was one of the scariest ones I've done. The spaceshot was good too!

And you won't pay Disneyland prices to go! In fact, there is no entrance fee at all! If you or the kids need a break from museums and churches and such, go get an ice cream and ride the ferris wheel, visit the wax museum, drive some bumper cars. After all, it is 30 meters from the metro so why not?
