I haven't seen it for myself, but my brother crossed Jacques-Cartier Bridge recently and told me that they started digging a big ditch for the foundations of the ride. I'll try to get some pictures eventually but it'll have to wait a bit as the sidewalk on the bridge is closed during the winter, and it's pretty much the only good spot from which we can get pictures of the construction outside of the park itself (and anything interesting will probably be covered in snow anyway).
Favorites :
Steel : Maverick, Wicked Cyclone, Superman: the ride (SFNE)
Wood : El Toro, Phoenix, Lightning Racers
Total coaster count : 137

Yes, but it's an all new kind of suck. In comparison to the suck that's been there for years, this will at least be different...

I am pretty sure I am the only person in the world who actually liked Green Lantern and thought it was one of the most insane, crazy, holy-sh*t-what-just-happened coasters ever built. Yes, painful, but I'd take it over some boring, predictable coaster any day. I'm actually a little sad it's gone.

But then again, most people who hate it rode it only once or twice. I rode it probably 15-20 times over its 6 years of operations at SFMM and had a healthy mix of good, bad, and OK rides on it. Not gonna lie, I'll miss the darn thing.
Steel: 197 / Wood: 33 / Total: 230
Home Parks: Knott's (when home), Lagoon (at school)
Favorite Coaster: Intimidator 305

^ I know my frustration with it is that I rode the superior version in Sweden that actually flipped so I knew what the ride was capable of if run correctly.
Top 3 Wood- Lightning Rod, Voyage, Coaster (PNE Playland)
Top 3 Steel- Steel Vengeance, Untamed, Expedition GeForce
Most Recent Trip Reports- Holiday World & Indiana Beach

I love donkeys more than me.

^ Perhaps it will run correctly in Canada where they can let it run as it’s suppose to. That was never going to happen in the US, where people constantly walk around with resting “I’m 2 seconds away from complaining” face.

I’ve heard a lot of people saying that and I’m totally on board with America being ridiculous in general, but does anyone seriously expect La Ronde to be the park that takes a poorly run ride and run it better? Look at Monstre. :lol:
