Rodeo Carnival Add A Big Wheel
"La Grande Wheel XL," built in Germany, makes its world-wide debut this year at the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo Carnival along with two others--one new, and one a returning favorite. At its peak, La Grande Wheel XL reaches 15 stories high and cost about $10 to ride. There are 36 air-conditioned cabins that hold up to eight people. Its makers promise a smooth, slow, entertaining experience.
