Praterturm, Austria

From series “The most thrilling roller coasters in the world”
Height: 117 meters.

One of the main attractions of Vienna is Prater Tower chairoplane; the height of its central column is 117 meters, which is comparable with a 33-storey building. The base has a 12-pointed star form, where 12 double seats are attached, so at the same time 24 people can ride this flip-flap. Every day hundreds of thrill-seekers choose this ride to immerse them in a pleasant atmosphere of the coast. The chairoplane starts to rotate at a speed of 60 km/h and gradually raises seats to a height of 95 meters.

Praterturm, Austria Prater Tower is very popular among people of all ages. Importantly, the attraction isn't available to children under 6 years, as well as for those less than 120 centimeters. Those who dare to experience the carousel in action, have to consider several important tips. Before the flight, it's better to take everything out of pockets, otherwise that stuff would be lost. Wind is getting much stronger when lifting and rotating, so people, who are sensitive to drafts, are recommended to protect their nose, throat and ears. After taking these security measures, the flight at high speed and at great height will bring positive emotions. Next - Singapore Flyer
