  • Visited with a group of friends on the last day of our trip. As soon as we arrived we entered a magical place for us to explore, a great variety of rides to choose from. My scariest experience was on the giant snake ride, Screaming my lungs out was the best experience I had there and we had loads of fun. We ate a hot dog at a place called Alibaba and it was absolutely delicious. Highly recommended and a must go to place if you're planning going to Viennese.

  • Entrance to the wheel by itself is worth €10. You get a very nice top view of Vienna. The cart you hop into inside the wheel already has a panoramic view printed on its interiors with name tags to most major attractions in the city so that you can related when you see them from the top. A no-miss when in Vienna!

  • the height of the wheel is not that tall.when you go up there, you cannot see the view of downtown the historic place. You can see the Prater Park in the bird eye view which is nice. I had a ride in the evening so i cannot see much view so far. my recommendation is to take a ride before sunset

  • It is just boring, you can't have a nice view of the window because is dirty and it does not go very high. For a better view of the city I would much more recommend the Donauturm Tower. For a funny amusement park activity, the bumper cars are much more enjoyable.

  • Great view and it was fun to go for a ride here. Nice experience to remember! And pretty romantic at night.
