Is the park still keeping their other Ferris Wheel as well with this addition?

La Ronde already had a pretty good flat ride collection, so this will just add to it. I would have thought they may look to add a new coaster with Cobra being removed.

So, La Ronde is getting a ABC Rides Tourbillion, eh. SF must have bought a few of these things.

As soon as they update it hopefully we'll get more info.

Try this link (I think it's what you are looking for):
https://www.sixflags.com/larondeen/attractions/newfor2018

This page shows "Tourbillon" as a standard scrambler.

Yep. Would have been nice if the link worked from the national page to have this information earlier...

That's weird they'd call a scrambler Tourbillion after they add 2 tourbillion rides to other parks. Glad the page finally went up so we could get some clarity on what they're adding at least.

I don't know if it's that weird really, it's not like anyone else besides us realises that the other rides had the model name tourbillon, and besides, tourbillon just means whirlwind in french which is a pretty fitting and basic name for a scrambler.

I agree that giving a copied-and-pasted name to a scrambler at La Ronde won't be a big deal for most of La Ronde's visitors, especially as this is a family ride and kids won't care.

On another note, I'm pleasantly surprised by these new additions, as according to Screamscape (not always reliable I know) I was expecting we'd get a Superloop, which would be a let-down as Vertigo is basically a trackless Superloop. I love both tilt-a-whirls and scramblers, so the fact we get these two awesome new rides and La Ronde tries to improve its (mostly) poor aesthetics by creating yet another themed area can't be bad news.

I'm curious to see where they will install this, b/c apart from the old Cobra spot I'm unsure where there would be enough space to install a new themed area.
Favorites :
Steel : Maverick, Wicked Cyclone, Superman: the ride (SFNE)
Wood : El Toro, Phoenix, Lightning Racers
Total coaster count : 134
