Buckle up! We're in for one hellavu ride! Welcome to Montreal's thriller island: La Ronde! You heard it right! The freaking ISLAND is one paradise for family and young people to hang out and chill! So La Ronde... sweet La Ronde. Every kid-teen-young adult's fantasy world. The price is expensive about $50. I managed to buy the early seasonal pass for $48. Wooohoooo. Totally worthy. With the season pass, you can have 3 free passes! How cool is that? It also comes with a bunch of other coupons for cinema, Beavertails, nachos...etc. Craaazy!
So onto what's La Ronde alllll about! You guys are all here to see what are the rides, right?
This is Ednor. You are hanging off the trails. You aren't sitting the ride like traditional roller costers. You are like overgrown bats dangling off the rails on straps. Then it goes on high speed, spins you around. I was laughing like a maniac the whole ride! All you hear are scream of terror and my hysterical laughter.
I. Love. Thriller. Rides.
This is a view of the amusement park-island from above (sitting on another ride to take these photos). What you are seeing is the Saint-Laurent River. Montreal is located in the middle of a gigantic river. The island on which La Ronde is on (Jean Drapeau) is a tiny island beside Montreal.
This steel beauty is the MONSTER. It's crazy. It brings you inside the colossal structure and you are like "WHOA! Where are we? OMG my head is going to smash against the steel! NOOOOO" Yeah that's my reaction. Many people share my fear. That's what Monster is famous for. The line up for this buddy is at least 1 1/2 hour.
This super awesome roller coaster is the newest thriller ride called the Goliath. It's gorgeous to look at and scary as hell to ride on. Look at how steep the first part! At the right side of the photo, you see a flat semi-circle right? You think it's all safe and happy, right? Well, it wasn't! You are 90 degree from the ground! You are like "Holy Cow... I'm going to call off... I see the light!"
The front view of the DROP. See how steep it is? CRAZY! It's almost a free fall! I sat on the front row twice. When it drops, you feel your whole butt levitate from the seat. Holy shit.
This one is another exciting ride called the Vampire. Like Ednor (from above), you are strapped by your shoulders and off you go! From down here, all you see is people's legs sticking out of the ride. It's funny to look, scary to ride! Woohoooo~
The photos are too heavy so I had to split this trip into a few parts. Next week, it will be about the other more... passive rides and the awesome food section at La Ronde!
