Ok. The weather was appalling but this Stephen King esque fairground is the pits. It was so unwelcoming, most of the stalls were shut and it just had a bleak feel all around.

As for the park it sits in, utterly characterless.

I choose this location for giant wheel ride to take city view click pictures, queue is ok for tickets but if you can buy ticket online. So yes giant wheel gave us good clicks but rides I took was more fun, basically any ride cost you 5 Euro which is not costly also.
I recommend this place specially if you have kids with you.

Prater is known (and seen fro distance) by its huge Ferris wheel. The park offers plenty of attractions for kids and adults.
Children under 4 may not have too much to do here (very limited options for small children). The park tends to be noisy, as there is (different) loud music from each attraction, which can get a bit cacaphonic.

the giant ferris wheel gives you a complete view of Vienna and a bird's eye view of most of the attractions.
Don't miss the fun rides next to it.
