the Author had the pleasure of visiting this famous Viennese Ferris wheel, the Wiener Riesenrad, in 2003.  It was a memorable event for the Author, not only as a pilgrimage to a location of Cinematic Importance, but also for her Father making full use of his modest German vocabulary by reprimanding queue-jumping Austrian youths.  The Author was most impressed.
