North of the border, on an island in Montreal, you will find one of the largest amusement parks in Canada
Originally build as part of the World's Fair in 1967, it now shares the island with all sort of attractions, like the popular Biodome.
The headliner here is Goliath, the first Hypercoaster in the country, which is an excellent offering from B&M
What the layout lacks in creativity, it makes up for in execution
The airtime is remarkable, and B&M provide one of the more enjoyable coasters out there
The latest addition is a surprisingly popular Vekoma SLC, Ednor: Le Attaque
Themed after a mysterious lake-dwelling monster, the placement could not be more scenic.
Unfortunately it provides the typical rough ride, and hardly seems worthy of its following
While an otherwise unbranded Six Flags park, it does have the requisite Batman clone, here known as Vampire
Being a mirror image of the original and more common layout, it offers a slight skew on the experince
Without a doubt, this installations offer so much in the way of the intensity we're used to
Tucked away behind Vampire is an aging and aged Intamin standup, becoming quite rare these days, but probably for good reason
The real old-timer is Super Manage, a simply ancient Vekoma corkscrew that as seen better days
Rounding out the Vekoma clone trifecta is le Boomerang
The only wooden coaster in the park, the intense dual track le Monstre gives the coaster resume a shot in the arm
Another chain park mainstay is a wild mouse, with Toboggan Nordique sporting a very loose theme.
Considering the amazing views, the massive Ferris Wheel is definitely worth a visit
The island the park is on has a very large green-space, so wildlife abounds
This little guy was being fed by the shuttle bus drivers who link the park and the Metro station
We found La Ronde to be a bit of a mixed bag, a nice enough park unfortunately shoehorned into the Six Flags way of doing things
But no doubt does its placement make for a unique cityscape, as seen here from the famous Mont Royale
