Skip-the-line didn't work, lady in ticket ofice was a little dumbfounded by what to do with Viator ticket. Ride itself was good, we were lucky to have a lovely clear day.

Ticket Scan Issue
Jeffrey_B, Oct 2022
Other than buying the ticket in advance, we still had to stand in a line to get an actual paper ticket. The scanner did not recognize your barcode.

A must-do experience in Vienna, and pretty much lived up to the hype. Great views and slow enough so you have time to take it in.

Worth visiting the wheel
Christopher_B, May 2022
Wheel is iconic and a must do in Vienna. Skip the line is inaccurate as you have to join the line to exchange vouchers for tickets.

Okay but wouldn’t recommend
Geoff_S, Oct 2021
Bit out of the way and there is so much steel and carriage around you you don’t get too much of a view. The downloaded ticket did NOT let you skip any lines either.
Fabulous Vienna views.
Robert_S, Aug 2020
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
Kevin_M, Aug 2019
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.
Unique Experience
lessismore_3, Jun 2019
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.
