I don’t know about you, but for me roller coasters tickle me from the inside out, climbing up my back, flourishing into a huge laugh! Open. My teeth are always dry after a ride, eyes wet and knees weak.
There’s not a doubt, if I were a doctor, I would prescribe a hearty dose of La Ronde, refillable for life. Because it’s good for your heart and mind too.
Tested and Approved
Dear readers, all the following stunts can be re-enacted at La Ronde and are even encouraged, tested and approved:
Let’s go, right to the top of Vol Ultime! La Ronde’s latest ride will give you wings and, believe you me, I’m not a fan of rides that spin. A+ for the turbo-panoramic view of Montréal that goes by at 60 km/h, while you’re 55 metres above the ground. Yes, the equivalent of a 15-storey building… you’ve done your math right. Wow!
Then head over to the Goliath, no hands, please! This was THE highlight of my day; sitting at the front of this steel giant, I never touched the bar. I swear. The seconds of suspension at the peak of every climb are delectable, the initial descent grandiose, and a ride that lasts more than three minutes is a delight!
And since there are more than just rides at La Ronde, I sacrificed myself to make sure the BeaverTails are still succulent. I validate, dear readers, they are indeed! Just treat yourself.
In Fall? Oh Yea!
Aahh! Here Are The Zombies!
I’m telling you, La Ronde in September and October is awesome. I admit, there aren’t any more fireworks, but zombies will be coming out of the woodwork for Halloween, the lines are shorter and the breeze refreshing.
Night also falls sooner, which gives an entirely different feel to rides like the Monster, diving in the dark, or the Ferris Wheel, so romantic. The arches light up like at fairs, and Montréal shines with all its charm.
So, lovers of wild, uncontrolled laughter, hair standing on end and deep-down shivers, don’t miss this encounter with the Goliaths, Cobras and Vampires of this world.
I’m due for my dose!
