Der Rundumblick über Wien und dass wir nicht an der Warteschlange anstehen mussten. Ich würde immer wieder vorab ein Ticket kaufen.

The information that a fastlane exists should be pointed out directly when purchasing tickets. The operators on site only have this information inside the building. At the time I was there, the facility was very busy, so I only found out about the fast lane after waiting for over 30 minutes. There is a need for optimization here!

Easy purchase, super quick entry. I would have liked the digital tickets sent via confirmation email, which contains just the link to them but may not work well either. The alternative is to install the app and have everything available from there.

Even when getting a skip the line ticket, i spent 30 minutes standing for another line inside the inner rim of the venue and there was no audio guide received

Entrance was very quick and efficient since we had the'skip the line' tickets. The ride itself was a great experience and the atmosphere was very festive. I am happy that I booked through Headout, as they are very prompt and discounts are given on other bookings.

Enjoy a ride on the historic Giant Ferris Wheel of the Austrian capital and a symbol of the world-famous Wiener Prater. A must-see attraction in the city, it allows you to soak up breathtaking views of the entire city and its most popular landmarks. The ride lasts 10 to 20 minutes during which you’ll experience spectacular views of the Vienna Woods hills, the picturesque River Danube, the Marchfeld, and the Pannonian Basin. You can even explore the restaurant, Fotoshop, and Souveniershop on your own.

The Giant Ferris Wheel offers more than a traditional Ferris wheel cart ride. The newly constructed The Wheel of Time – shown through the ‘Panorama’ installation – revives much-loved Prater traditions with artistic and technical audio-visual elements in eight cabins. Taking on two thousand years of the city’s history and stories about the Prater, discover the city in an extremely unique manner – high above the ground (64.75-meters to be exact) on this quintessential Ferris Wheel.
