This thread is simple! Rather than having a million little threads about all the news on Wiener Prater, this thread is designed to consolidate it all into one user-friendly thread. Feel free to use it to post updates, trip reports, questions, comments, and of course, general discussion.
Below are some links to past updates from the park, you may be interested in. Enjoy!
My homepark Prater in Vienna recently got a new attraction - the Tornado. I'm not sure if it's another prototype of the austrian company funtime, but i've never seen a ride like that, so i thought i'd share.
Basically it's a swingride, but due to the suspension being excentered itself the "gondola" performs a strange curve.
The four across seats are hung up on steel wires and are also rotating via mounted motors - no free rotation. Guess the operator can choose different ride programs here.
All in all the ride looks fun and according to the screams of the riders it should be. I didn't ride it today, so i can't tell any further on the ride experience by now.
On to some photos...
I liked this shot - somehow reminds me of the stephen king movie with the clown, which name i can't remember now.
And as TPR seems to like boobs shown in parks i'll end this post with this picture - greetings from Austria :-)
Had to post some general park photos - the central plaza by night seen here.
Starting the ride cycle. The seats are in upright position.
Seats have started rotating in this picture.
Closeup of the suspension - rotation axis is excentered.
Overview of the slim looking ride.

I was in the Prater Park the day before yesterday but I didn't ride the Tornado swing. It looked cool however but I didn't feel like spending money on a flat ride (exept maybe for the giant clock which was very cool )
