The overall idea is great - not quiet what i was expecting - but it turned out to be entertaining and historical based. We hd kids with us, ages 6,8,10 and they all seemed to like it and learned from the visit.

In a very wierd way, this works very well. I know the history isn't portrayed brilliantly, the monarchy section is childish, the music section is a waltz in a teacup etc. ...... But, the whole thing works well and the kids love it.
The staff were very helpful, very polite, funny and aware of the sensitivity of Austrian history. The 5D experience was great. The audio guide was useful and worked well. If you have children, you should visit this. They will leave with knowing a tiny bit more about European history while having had fun. I am glad I went with my children.

Whenever I got some foreign friends to visit me in Vienna, I usually take them there - especially when they don't have a lot of time in Vienna. It offers a nice introduction into Vienna's history and makes fun. Nevertheless, it also mentions the darker side of Austria's history.
So far I went there already like 7 times. The only thing I did not like (and I already told the staff about it) is, that the ballroom dance thingy makes a disturbing noise and I could not enjoy the great music.
In total, it is fun for everyone and the 5D time machine is just awesome!

Whole point for me, was to learn a bit about the history of Vienna. The whole thing is in German, you wear these headphones which almost but not quite drown at the German audio. Some of the cinema was German language, English subtitles with no English audio so useless for young english speaking kids

Would make sense to have English and German versions run alternatively?

The presentation itself... was pretty crap. and for $100 for 5 people? I would rather have done something else. The Rome time travel was so much better. The 5d cinema in Vienna ran for 5 minutes vs the 30 minutes in Rome. The rest of the presentation was some talking muppet versions of some of Vienna famous people from history that crapped on trying to be funny whilst telling us a bit about Vienna - but it all fell terribly flat.

Huge waste of money.

We recommend visiting Time Travel Vienna. The staff is professional, the guide spoke excellent English. Most attractive is the 5D cinema, visitors really feeling tremors, wind, smoke and the presentation is really beautiful. You stroll through the history of Austria and Vienna. The guided tour is 50 minutes long, interesting and fascinating at the moments. The price for one person is 18 euros, but it is worth your money.
