World’s Oldest Amusement Park in Austria

When you think of Austria, you imagine rolling hills, classical concerts, art galleries and schnapps with everything. Riding some crazy snake ride with a g-force that turned my dress into a crop top was the last thing I thought I’d be doing in Vienna. Yet, on the night of my very first summer birthday, this how I found myself. And all I have to say is that it was AWESOME!

Prater Amusement Park in Vienna is the oldest amusement park in the world and also home to the world’s oldest operating ferris wheel, which was constructed in 1897. Thankfully, I found this out after I’d jumped on every crazy ride I could find and was able to enjoy the old-school vibe of the amusement park. There was no merch on display or over-priced snacks, just good old-fashioned rides and that’s the way it should be.
