La Ronde Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

Just looking at pictures and maps, I've always been confused about the parking at La Ronde. I see a parking lot in the back of the park by Goliath, but that is it. Are you shuttled to the front gate, or do you have to walk all the way to the front of the park from that parking lot?

I will agree with you that the parking does appear to be confusing by just looking at the map. While there is parking at the back of the park, there is also parking near the toll booths where you enter, just before going under the Jacques Cartier Bridge. So, there are two parking lots available for parking your car at La Ronde. If you do park in the back parking lot, there is a secondary entrance which you enter known as the Village Entrance. So, there is no need for a shuttle to take you to the front entrance from the back parking lot.

There's two entrances. The back entrance and parking lot seems to be opened up now when the front one is sufficiently full (at least that's what it seemed like Saturday).

^My prediction is optimistic and I think we (might) get a Super Loop in the old haunted house spot (between Manitou and Boomerang), but you're right that this is totally a possibility! If that's what happens, hopefully a Scrambler, I love those

La Ronde, Quebec’s leading destination for thrills and family entertainment, will introduce Chaos, a new giant loop roller coaster. Chaos offers a pure adrenaline rush as riders go forward, backward and upside down for unprecedented hang-time. This exhilarating, seven-story loop sends riders through a series of multiple, adrenaline-charged revolutions, higher and higher before changing directions for even more chaotic thrills.

I mean I think we all lost whatever little faith we had in new rides for this park after they announced a somewhat decent carnival ride package and then only opened a single sad tilt-a-whirl

Well better than a tilt-a-whirl! I wonder if they’ll be able to maintain their ride promise this year.

 

Meh - I much prefer tilt-a-whirl's myself.

 

This announcement was one of those "I kinda expected this" sort of announcements for La Ronde.

 

Serious question: Does anyone think that they will eventually RMC Le Monstre or is this park too far gone?

Is it safe to assume the worst for visiting LaRonde on Thanksgiving? Or is it surprisingly not busy? Wanted to hit up the park while I have a Six Flags pass this year and getting there on a Monday is easier to make happen than a Friday or Sunday.

I was expecting this announcement too. So as of 2019, the only Six Flags parks without super loops are Magic Mountain and Mexico - and that's even including Frontier City and Darien Lake.

 

Watch for those 2020 announcements next year... lol. They have to finish what they started!

 

And Great Adventure, this super loop is a relocation!

Does anyone know a reason why La Ronde is closed on Saturday May 25? It seems very strange since it's now open on weekends except this date.

 

I fully expect the answer to be "because it's La Ronde" but was curious if there was something going on in the city.

I'd like La Ronde to have DC theming. Vampire could be rethemed to Batman, there'd be a Grid ride, a Wonder Woman ride, a Superman ride, a Cyborg ride, a The Joker ride, a Harley Quinn ride...

 

 

I think Vampire was planned to be Batman: The Ride, but due to licensing issues it didn't work out.

 

Does anyone know if this park got free wifi like other Six Flags parks this year? I might need it as my phone plan doesn't have out of the country service.

La Ronde does have WiFi, it pretty much works everywhere the only place I had connection issues was near Le Vampire.

That's awesome, thanks! I'm going Wednesday, how will lines be?

Bad probably. La Ronde has awful operations and unlike other parks there really isn't a slow day since its extremely easy to get to via the Metro. Also if you don't have a platinum or diamond membership I highly recommend getting one, La Ronde has a stupid entrance system where you have to wait in this hour long line because of how inefficient they are but if you have at least a platinum membership you can use the member entrance and skip the entrance line. This allows you a good two or three hours before everyone else gets in to do what ever you want.
