An official with Madame Tussauds says the famed wax museum is considering Vienna's Prater amusement park as the location for its newest European attraction.

Johannes Mock says the company is also interested in operating the Prater's renowned Ferris wheel, which is featured in the classic movie "The Third Man."

Mock told Austrian television Tuesday that the urban amusement park's popularity as a family attraction has the kind of "synergy" that Madame Tussauds is looking for.

Madame Tussauds' newest museum is set to open in Berlin in July.
