Quote Of The Day: Anthony: "This park reminds me of Queens"

[Trip Report[/b]
Well....I'm currently in my hotel in Montréal, and I forgot my laptop charger...and my battery drains quickly, so I shall keep this short and to the point! We first went on Le Cobra which hurt alot, and I'm happy that there are not many Intamin Stand-up coasters...though Anthony wanted to keep riding so I ended up riding it two more times during the day!

Super Manège and Le Boomerang...Vekoma...nuff said!

You know what...I'm tired, most people aren't even reading this so I'll skip to more interesting things.

Le Monstre! We sat in the last car, and got bashed around in the rain...not fun! The second time we rode, I got knocked over and I had my hands up, so my arms went out, and my hand hit a piece of the structure on the 3rd drop...OWE! But you know what, I really love Le Monste, I just wish that they were running four trains instead of two!

Now for the almighty, GOLIATH! I'll admit, the first time, we all sat in the last row, and it was good. Not amazing, but good! Then it broke down, and didn't reopen until we were leaving the park, so we ran back and sat in the 2nd row! Now this suprised us! We did not expect the amount of ejector on this! It was incredible! Definately the best B&M I've ever been on! Now I shall give you all photos while I eat my poutine!

Looks like you had a nice time at the park. Goliath looks like an awesome ride to me, all about airtime!

I prefer to mate with donkeys over humans!

Poutine is French Fries with cheese and hot gravy.

I hate seeing TR's of this park. We went by it about 15 times back on my School trip to Montreal.
Looks like you had a good time and I enjoy reading your TR's. Keep up the good work

^Actually, a big collection of mediocre coasters, much like Canada's Wonderland. :lolr: However, unlike CW, it has two AWESOME B&Ms, Vampire and Goliath!

Nice TR, I loved La Ronde even though it was mad hot and crowded when we were there.

I do prefer Nitro over Goliath.

Good report, nice pic's, even more amazing is your hand did not get caught on the structure and you were yanked out of your seat.

Nice pics!

Le Monstre looks like fun to me.
I also like the both Cobb woodies in Europe.
