All kids in costume get free entry to the Königreich der Eisenbahnen and discounted entry to the Spooky Jump in Jumpworld.One.

The Undead must be Viennese 🧟‍♀️🧟‍♂️🧟

This year, an interactive Halloween adventure with five stations awaits you in the city of the undead. Condemned to be trapped in the Prater forever, the undead have only one hope – the Black Empress. According to an old legend, she redeems undead Viennese people on the night before All Saints’ Day and finally allows them to rest. The catch? Only if the living Halloween folk unanimously demand it!

Starting at 18:30 o’clock, the Black Empress asks you to examine the undead at their stations. The following undead creatures await you: Dr. Pest (aka Doctor Pest), Ballerina des Bösen (the Ballerina of Evil), Ewiger Dirigent (the Eternal Conductor), Brandmeister Löschnak (Fire Chief Löschnak) and Schwarze Witwe (Black Widow) You can talk to them, ask them questions, and then decide whether they deserve to be saved. Of course, among the undead are also their victims and employees of MA 66, the magistrate’s department for undead.

From 20:30 o’clock, the Black Empress will visit all the stations to carry out the sentence of her people.

When: Tue, Oct 31st 2023 from 17:30 o’clock
Where: Throughout Wurstelprater

Scary – but not too frightening

The Luftburg loves family celebrations and really goes wild on Halloween too. Magical witches, beautiful butterflies or spooky ghosts – all little Halloween fans will find a lovingly spooky afternoon program in the air castle. Typically Halloween, but child-friendly, so also suitable for the very little ones. With every Luftburg day band (Tagesband), the kids get a welcome drink of monster juice, access to the spider craft station and a portion of ouch popcorn (let them surprise you!).

For a good cause: The Luftburg donates all proceeds from the Halloween campaign to the Kindertraum Foundation.
