The Prater is a large public place in Austria's capital Vienna. It includes the Wurstelprater amusement park, which is home to the Wiener Riesenrad. The Vienna Ferris wheel, located at the entrance of the amusement park, is one of Vienna's most popular tourist attractions. It was opened to the public in 1897.

Although the amusement park constitutes only a tiny part of the Prater in Vienna, a world full of roller coasters, ghost trains, and attractions of all kinds awaits its visitors. Entertainment is guaranteed, as there are highlights for everyone, such as a Madame Tussauds, a 5D Cinema, numerous rides, great restaurants, attractions and activities for children, a free fall tower, a hall of mirrors and others.
