La Ronde - Montreal, QC

Post by Johnlloyd » 25 Nov 2013, 17:46

A new ride is coming to La Ronde in 2014. It's Demon! It's a Top Spin like ride or is a Top Spin. Not to sure because the teaser video shows a Mondial Roll Over

and a Huss Topspin near the end of the teaser video. Quite confusing :? but slightly interesting.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KtsfZIBwpWM

From what I've heard, they've purchased the refurbished Mondial Roll Over that has been on their site for quite some time.

I thought it was a Mondial Roll Over in the majority of the video but I don't know why they put a Huss Top Spin in the video near the end.

I think it is great that Six Flags is adding a flat ride, rather than taking one out like what they are doing throughout the chain. This should have some real good potential to be a great ride. Hopefully 2015 will bring a large coaster to La Ronde too.

Hopefully, La Ronde would become a full-fledged Six Flags park, especially given that it is their only Canadian property.

I think any major amusement park company that has just one amusement in a country would make it a full-fledged amusement park because Cedar Fair has with Canada's Wonderland since it is the most visited seasonal park for 2012.

Here is an update for Le Demon at La Ronde which is a Mondial Roll Over. It is up in operation thrilling riders who dare to ride. The video below shows some on and off ride shots of the ride. This video was created by CKOI 96.9FM of Montreal.

^All I can think of when I see that ride is the sheer amount of moving parts to break.

I agree, because rides with many moving parts tend to breakdown more often from what I have seen and heard. 8)

La Ronde, Quebec's leading destination for thrills and family entertainment, is set to bring guests exciting new adventures in 2016. The park is flipping the iconic Vampire backwards and adding two rides in an all-new section of the Park called Avenue Aventure.

Fans from around the world come every year to experience Vampire, the park's very own exciting bat-inspired inverted roller coaster. Next season, the journey will begin with a 32 meter climb to the top of the lift hill. Next, riders will soar beneath the track through five daunting inversions turning at speeds of up to 80 km/h per hour….backwards. Yes Backwards!

Avenue Aventure makes its park debut in 2016, providing fun and thrills for the entire family. The area will feature two new innovative rides. Phoenix, a flying scooter ride that puts guests in control as they soar against the wind and Gravitor, a fun adventure that lifts guests high above the ground as they turn around and around in an ocean of lights and sounds for a real dance party in the sky!

With family-packed fun, other highlights include:

Phoenix:

8 flying scooters
2 passengers per scooter
High speed rotation
Interactive flying that appeals to all ages

Gravitor:

8 suspended gondolas
2 passengers per gondola
1 Joystick per 2 seats for 360 degree gondola rotation
1500 lights on seats, arms and main column



"The 2016 season at La Ronde will provide guests with new reasons to visit again and again" said Phil Liggett, president of La Ronde. "Avenue Aventure is the perfect complement to our exciting lineup of rides and attractions and Vampire backwards will take thrills to a new level."

According to this video that Six Flags released today, it appears that Gravitor at La Ronde has been changed from a Gosetto Party Dance to the now former, Chance Falling Star, Rush Street Flyer from Six Flags St. Louis. Any reason as to why the Gravitor ride changed? 8)

Here is the concept art for the two new attractions that will be opening up at La Ronde this year. The Phoenix has some nice graphic art of a phoenix on the car whereas Gravitor has a more industrial theme to it. I am glad that Six Flags was able to re-purpose the former Rush Street Flyer (Chance Falling Star)from Six Flags St. Louis as it's quite the classic. 8)

A fun addition... And unlike their coasters, La Ronde actually seems to be able to run flat rides efficiently...
