Define “the worst”. La Ronde is the worst every day.

Does Jeff Johnson count this donkey as a credit?

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


And Great Adventure, this super loop is a relocation!

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...

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.

^ Maybe the park has been hired for a private company event. And they wanted that Saturday.

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.
Darien Lake is my home park. :kiss:

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

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.

I never knew why Six Flags doesn't just rename La Ronde "Six Flags Over Canada" or something like that.
