Video: KMG Tango

Tango is a KMG manufactured spin and puke ride and possibly the only ride to ever seat riders in a standing/floorless configuration. This might sound kind of…uh…painful for guys, but from what I experienced it really isn’t; however it’s still not the most comfortable ride either! The ride itself combines three different motions allowing riders to experience a sort of mid-air ballet from hell. From my own experience, the ride was very disorienting with all kinds of weird direction changes and constant “I have no idea where I’m pointed right now” moments!

The video below was taken at the 2010 North Brunswick Youth Sports Festival in North Brunswick, NJ. The ride is owned by Reithoffer Shows.

    This is one of the most unnerving flats rides I’ve ever been on. I had no idea those bicycle style restraints were so puny. It took a few minutes of flipping thru the air before I was able to relax and enjoy the ride. Definitely one of the best Spectaculars to come out in a while!!

      It is a really nice ‘spectacular’ ride. Not only is the motion odd but the ride is really damned high as well! The seat had sort of a barely there feeling so it really was unnerving being up that high!

    I read your article on the Tango, where you said the ride was pityful short. It was the same way at the Florida State Fair last February and it was very disappointing as I have taken much longer rides before. And it wasn’t even crowded at the fair. After I came home that night I let the Reithoffer people know how I felt about these short rides. Having seen your article on the fair in New Brunswick and your description on the short ride on the Tango, I just sent Reithoffer another e-mail complaining, as I’ve seen longer rides on the same ride in many of the videos.
    I’m familiar with the whole North Jersey area as I worked there before I moved to Florida. Instead of going through this website, you can reach me directly at my e-mail. It is bdbell1940@yahoo.com. I really like to ride the Tango, but not taking these rediculously short rides.
