The Prater (German pronunciation: [ˈpraːtɐ] (listen)) is a large public park in Leopoldstadt, Vienna, Austria. The Wurstelprater, an amusement park that is often simply called "Prater", lies in one corner of the Wiener Prater and includes the Wiener Riesenrad Ferris wheel.
The name Prater derives from one of two Latin words (or possibly both): pratum, meaning meadow; and Praetor, meaning magistrate or lawyer, possibly via Spanish prado or Italian prato.

If you like scary rides, go for black mamba. Most fun and scariest ride ever. I enjoyed every bit of it. As a matter of fact, I do it every time I come to prater. Apart from that, other rides are also good. I love it.

Amazing theme park in the city. If you're not scared of height, must try out one of the high rides that will give you a great view of thr whole city. Entry to the park is free but the rides will charge you reasonable price. We got on the highest ride for 5€. There's a very large and nice park around the theme park to enjoy the afternoon sun or just have a lazy stroll around.

Nice amusement park, but we were told there was no combined ticket suitable for our family so we had to pay for every single ride. Also grown ups that needed to accompany the small kids needed to pay full price . It got so expensive that we soon left and went to a playground instead. We would have preferred one entrance fee, and then being able to go on all the rides without thinking about the money all the time.

Perfect place to enjoy weekend day. Lots of rides for 4 and more hours of fun. Some rides for 10 years and more allowed but mostly all are for 6y and higher. We had perfect time but rides are a bit costly 🙄

Free entry. Had a fun time with the roller coasters and swings. Many attractions to play and its not that expensive per ride. Haunted houses, maze, horse riding and bumper cars. Was not crowded when I went at 4pm+ on a weekday. Lovely park to walk around.

Great amusement park. free entry. rides are reasonably priced ranged between 3-6 euros. I will give 5 stars considering the quality of rides, no entry fee and reasonable charges for rides and food inside the park.

It's a nice park to go for a walk, meet some friends, or to lay down on a camping blanket and just chill. The green is everywhere in the middle of the city. Just be aware it's not so safe at night.

Absolutely loved this place. There is something for all that this place can offer. For some it could be love at first sight. Full of energy and activity. So many rides to go around. Very nice restaurants and Bier gartens to have a lovely time with friends and family. The Giant wheel is just one hell of an experience! Worth a try for anyone who is in Vienna!

Park in Vienna which have amusement park inside. It's full of roller coasters and other attractions. Place is usually heavily crowded but at the end it's quite interesting with its unique atmosphere. You can easily spend here half of the day. There is also plenty of places where it's possible to grab some Austrian food and beer.

Great family day out place.best to check the website before visiting. One can buy different type of tickets to save big amounts. You can buy one ticket for multiple games. The Chocolate Museum in the heart of the park is unique experience. Visiting the park will definitely complete your visit to Vienna. The staff are friendly and helpful. There is some good places to eat also.

Prater is a fabulous family day out. A great funfair without queues when we were there during the week. Some of the rides were too big for our ten year old, but he did not feel like he was missing out as there were was lots for him to do. There were restaurants in the park and they seemed OK and reasonably priced. The big wheel is a must do. Great views of the city!

We spent most of our time in the amusement park and had a decent time. While there is a wide variety of attractions to choose from it's a bit off-putting that you have to pay for everything separately, it would be much appreciated if they had a pass that included every attraction. Currently you can buy a pass that includes some of them but not the ones we wanted to try out. Regardless it fun to experience an amusement park that is quite different.

Always a nice place to come to on a summer evening. Jogging under the shade of trees or a nice walk with the dogs! The amusement park is a fun place too to spend some Sundays too. I would not advice to come here alone though.

Great fun for the entire family. Games were reasonably priced, however, advise everyone to set a budget before hand as will easily over spend.
