Fly high and see 360 degree views of the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo™ on the La Grande XL. Soaring to heights of 130 feet, the Rodeo’s luxurious Ferris wheel features 36 air-conditioned cabins complete with padded leather seats, and enough room for you and three friends! Just steps away, all the best foods, including turkey legs, corn dogs, funnel cakes and cotton candy, are within easy reach at the carnival.
Sensory Friendly Carnival Experience
The Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo hosted its first-ever Sensory Friendly Carnival Experience Thursday, March 5, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. in select areas of the Rodeo carnival for guests with sensory processing differences. During this time, there were minimal lights and sounds permitted in certain areas of The Junction and the main carnival area to provide an accommodating and positive experience for guests with sensory sensitivities or challenges. More than 40 rides were included in the Sensory Friendly Experience. Rodeo volunteers from the Special Children’s Committee were on site to assist guests during this time.
