Couple Regret Requesting One Last Ride On The Ferris Wheel

Two Polish tourists asked a staff member to let them ride the Wiener Riesenrad Ferris wheel for a romantic trip right before it closed. In English, it is called the Vienna Giant Wheel.

Unfortunately, the controls were handed over to another colleague who shut down the ride without knowing the couple was still on it. Company boss Peter Petritsch said: "Something like this has simply never happened to us before." When they got bored, they used their mobile phones to call for help.

A staff member quickly arrived and brought the couple to the ground. The staff member also gave them a bottle of champagne as an apologetic gesture.

The 212 ft. tall Ferris wheel is located at the entrance of the Prater amusement park in Austria's capital Vienna. It is also one of the city's most popular tourist attractions. Moreover, it was the world's tallest extant Ferris wheel from 1920 through 1985.
