“Great Park with attractions for everybody”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 23, 2014

We had an amazing day at Prater Park. The map is very well categorized helping everybody to choose its favorite attraction.There is no entrance fee to the park, however each attraction has its own price, and if you are not careful you will have spent a small fortune, as you seem to want to choose all of them.
First you go on the oldest giant wheel which has a beautiful view and the well preserved structure functioning marvellously.

My 5 year old son wanted to ride on almost everything but he went really "bonkers" on Dizzy Mouse, a small roller coaster which surprises you in an incredible and amazing way.

I rode "Volare" which was really great as we seem to be really flying.

A must visit for families.

“Go!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2014

This place has a nice feel to it and there is loads to do. Once you arrive at the station you can see a big wheel and rides- it's worth buying a big wheel combi ticket with another attration. Then try other stuff such as go karting, ghost train etc. It's not just for kids so enjoy yourself. Shop around if you are doing a shooting game as one stall over charges stupidly!!!!

“Largest fairground !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 25, 2014

For anyone that has seen "The Third Man" the Prater is a must see with the Giant Ferris Wheel. We spent an afternoon wandering around looking at all the attractions. Some were only being got ready for the season while most were open. We were happy to watch others having fun on the rides.

“Great sights not much open in feb though”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 28, 2014 via mobile

I went here to pass some time on a recent business trip. I went largely to see the famous Ferris wheel. Luckily I managed to get there at night so saw the park lit up nicely. In summer hours k bet this is a great place to visit. Unfortunately most rides and attractions were closed in feb.

“Electrifying Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 6, 2014

I had not been on many crazy rides before and was afraid to go on one here as well. However, some of the rides looked so good and different that I couldn't take the risk of missing this lifetime opportunity of getting on to them. 'Ejection seat' is one such ride which I feel was worth the money and risk. I highly recommend it. You must feel the breeze when you are high in the sky, from where you will also be able to see a breathtaking view of the city.

My fear of the rides had vanished with that one ride; it was mainly because of the safety features that were there.
