A Dance With The Fearsome Tango At The Rodeo Carnival

If your stomach is even a little weak, the Tango is not for you. It doesn't look *that* terrifying, but trust us, once you are rapidly spinning around upside down, you'll be wondering when it will end. Halfway through the Tango, 11-year-old Hair Balls correspondent Jade Matusow declared, "Okay, I am never going on this ride again." She had to keep her eyes closed the entire time and sit down on a bench afterward. Her ratings of the Tango, on a scale of 1 to 5:

• Barf factor: 5 (Vomit Comet time)
• Scream factor: 5 (If you're not screaming, it's only because you're trying not to be sick)

Support the independent voice of Houston and help keep the future of Houston Press free.

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
