I liked Super Menage. With that portable frame, it had a lot of shock absorption built-in and was much more comfortable than most Vekoma/Arrow corkscrew coasters. Cosmetically, it couldn't have looked worse (when I was there in 2015)... but a lot of stuff at the park didn't look good. Years of cheap paint jobs dont' help. Such a shame as the park seems like it really could be a world-class place under different management/company.
Copy/pasting that French text into Google Translate produces the following:
The iconic Super Ride of La Ronde came to an abrupt end as a passenger's safety harness broke off when one of the trains climbed on Sunday, triggering an emergency stop.
"Safety sensors on the Super Manège stopped the initial climb of the train. All passengers were evacuated from the arena to continue their visit to the park. The safety of our customers is always our top priority and the ride will be closed for a thorough inspection, "Six Flags, which manages the amusement park, emailed the company.
It is on this note that ended the life of this carousel which was at its last weekend of operation after having entered service in 1981.
Culminating at 22.9m, the Super Manège was the first roller coaster with inversion of La Ronde. It reached a maximum speed of 65 km / h.
The new roller coaster that will replace the Super Manège will be unveiled on August 29th.
RIPieces Super Manege
Interesting to note that the article specifically says that it will be replaced by a "roller coaster". I mean, I think most of us feel that this is GL from SFMM, but still interesting that apparently local news has been given the impression it's a coaster as well.

This is too funny. Imagine if any coaster enthusiasts (although I'm not sure if any really go to La Ronde) were waiting for that mystical final public ride and this happened. They'd all throw a collective fit.

Technically they could relocate their new-for-2018 Super Loop to that spot.
La Ronde, Quebec’s leading destination for thrills and family entertainment, will introduce the first ever free-fly coaster in Canada. Vipère takes coaster riding to the next level, sending riders on a head over heels journey with unexpected drops, vertical free-falls and gravity-defying somersaults. This thrilling ride will give guests the feeling of weightlessness as they soar outside the confines of a traditional track.
