Rating The Rodeo Rides, Part 1: The Disko
Photos by Jeff Balke
The new ride at the rodeo this year is the Disko. It spins you in circles on a disc, making you feel like it's going to spin off track and throw you -- in other words, it's a lot of fun.
We rode the Disko with 11-year-old Hair Balls correspondent Jade Matusow. Asked how she was doing after the ride, she said, "I'm fine...ish." We gave her the honor of rating the ride on a scale of 1 to 5:
Barf factor: 3 (Pre-ride Coke is okay; probably best to avoid the deep-fried meatballs on a stick.)
Scream factor: 3.5 (Your voice will get a workout, but you'll still have one afterwards.)
