Fabulous Vienna views.

A lovely experience if only too quickly over. Despite covid, the staff were polite and inviting and on top of cleanliness, cleaning the cars between visitor. Would love to do it again one day. Highly recommended.

I issued tickets for 28/07... Giant wheel was closed in that day... Can't reach the customer service in order to get my money back...

The giant Ferris wheel is a very old, very well known land mark in Vienna. The actual location is a big disappointment being in a theme park, rather a long walk from the historic city centre. Make sure you print the ticket if bought from this site as a printed copy is needed at the ride. The wait line was only about 10 to 15 mins on the day we visited. We are glad we made the effort to ride the big wheel but to be honest it’s only to say we have done it.
Wonderful view

My wife and I had a very nice time on the wheel ... had no idea there was an amusement park right in Vienna. We went at night to see the lights and it was beautiful. Also, found out you can have dinner in one of the cars and may do that next time we're there. Overall, it was a very nice experience.

We enjoyed this unique, historic experience. The lights of the city at night were memorable. We did have trouble with our viator print-at-home tickets not being read by their machine but it was quickly resolved.

We enjoyed going on the Giant Ferris Wheel, although if I had known earlier I might have gone for the Dining Car option. This would be different for a couple celebrating an event such as Anniversary etc.

Every visit to Vienna must include a trip on the famous ferris wheel. I did it in the dark and it was amazing. Try and go with a group of friends for a truly memorable experience.
